Quotation Punctuation


Bell work 4 16

BELL WORK 4/16

When using quotation marks to show that someone is speaking, it is important punctuate correctly. The first two rules are:

  • End punctuation belongs inside the quotation marks. Example: “I had a great time!”

  • When introducing who said the quotation, use a comma to introduce it (and capitalize first word of quotation). Example: He said, “Let’s go.”

    Directions: Rewrite each sentence, and add any punctuation and quotation marks where needed.

  • John said Its going to be a rainy day

  • He quickly told me I didnt do it


Bell work 4 17

BELL WORK 4/17

The next 2 rules for punctuating with quotations are:

  • When a quote is broken up, it should look like this:

    “When we get home,”she said,“we’ll make dinner.”

    2. Place a comma at the end of the quote when following it with who said it.

    “Let’s go home,” she said.

  • Create an original sentence that includes a quotation that is broken up by the speaker (like in example 1).

  • Create a original sentence that includes a quotation and is followed by the speaker (like in example 2).

Don’t capitalize where the quote picks up

Comparative & Superlative Adjectives


Bell work 4 23

BELL WORK 4/23

  • Adjectives that are used to compare things have special forms. Comparative and superlative adjectives are sometimes irregular. Consider the three adjectives: good, better, best.

  • Good is a regular adjective that can describe anything pleasing.

  • Better is a comparative adjective that shows it’s favored between two things

  • Best is superlative which means that of all the people or items presented, only one can be the best.

  • The same rules apply for bad, worse, worst.

  • Directions: Write one sentence for each of the following words: good, better, best, bad, worse, and worst. You should have 6 total sentences.


Bell work 4 24

BELL WORK 4/24

Comparative adjectives compare two things. For regular comparative adjectives (we discussed irregular ones yesterday), there two rules:

  • If the regular adjective ends in y, change the y to i before adding –er (ex: happy happier)

  • For many regular adjectives with 3 or more syllables, use the word more before the adjective (do not add –er). (ex: delightful more delightful).

    Directions: For each word, change it to make it a comparative adjective. You will have to add –eror more using the rules above.

    Example: Weak Weaker

  • Slow2. Noisy3. Enjoyable

    4. Good5. Funny6. Beautiful


Bell work 4 25

BELL WORK 4/25

For regular superlative adjectives, there are 3 rules to follow:

  • If the regular adjective has 1 or 2 syllables, add “-est” to the end.(Make the second consonant double if you have a short consonant-vowel-consonant word) Example: sad saddest

  • If the adjective ends in y, change the y to i before adding –est. Example: funny funniest

  • For many regular adjectives with 3 or more syllables, use the word most before the adjective, and do not add –est. Example: delightful most delightful

    Directions: Change each word to make it a superlative adjective. You will have to add –estor most using the rules above.

  • Weak2. Wet3. Dangerous

  • Small5. Far6. Bad

Bell work 4 30

BELL WORK 4/30

There are several irregular adjectives that change form depending on what they are describing.

Use FEWER with objects that can be counted one-by-one. Example: There are fewer days left this year than I thought.

Use LESSfor nouns that cannot be individually counted or that are abstract.

Example: There is less time left in the hour than I thought.

*When referring to time or money, less is usually used.

  • Write one sentence that correctly uses the word fewer.

  • Write one sentence that correctly uses the word less.

  • Write one sentence that correctly includes both fewer and less.
