There are a number of resources which can be used to teach children about speech marks (also known as inverted commas or quotation marks):
1) Witch and Tiger Conversation . This worksheet (in PDF format below) shows ten pictures of a witch and a tiger having a conversation. The speech bubbles are blank, and the procedure for using this worksheet goes as follows:
- First, the children can choose names for the witch and the tiger.
- Then, they have to create the contents of the conversation. The topic of the conversation could be decided by the children, or it could be based on a choice by the teacher. You could even complete the conversation before the lesson, in order to save more time for the next (and most important) section.
- Now the children have to re-write this conversation in the form of a story. They will need to include phrases such as “said Tom” and “asked Joe”. Speech marks will also need to be used, so it is important that children have a good knowledge of the correct use of speech marks before this activity is tried.
2) Missing Speech Marks . This activity is also based on a worksheet, which can be also be found below. It contains a number of sentences involving speech. However, the speech marks have been removed from the text and should be replaced by the children.
3) Missing Speech Marks . This activity is very similar to the one above, with children required to put speech marks in the correct place in each of the sentences. The worksheet (in PDF format) is also below.

Children are asked to circle the contractions in each sentence. It is important for students to be able to identify and use contractions as they're used in our everyday speech and writing. This is a handy worksheet to use as an introduction to contractions.
A contraction is a word made by shortening and joining two words together. There are two activities included in this resource. Firstly, students write the correct contraction for the set of words and then write the words that each contraction stands for.
Question or command?
A question is a sentence that needs an answer. What time is it?
A command is a sentence that tells somebody to do something. Put away your toys.
Children read through the sentences and decide whether they are questions or commands. Identifying questions and commands can encourage students to be more actively engaged in classroom discussions and activities. They will be more likely to ask their own questions and respond to commands when they understand the difference between the two. Children are asked to think of two questions and two commands of their own. This handy worksheet is a great introduction when learning the difference between a question and a command. Download and use this activity in the home or in the classroom.
Question or exclamation?
The main difference between a question and an exclamation is that a question is used to ask for information, while an exclamation is used to express an emotion or feeling. Understanding the difference between these two sentence types is an important aspect of language development for primary-aged pupils, as it can help them to communicate effectively and express themselves clearly. This worksheet asks students to determine whether the sentence is a question or an exclamation.
Past tense verbs
Using descriptive verbs can help to make writing more interesting and engaging for children. It can also encourage students to experiment with different word choices to express themselves more effectively. The sentences included in this worksheet use past tense verbs which are commonly used in everyday speech and writing. Students choose the correct verb in the word bank to complete the sentences.
Using the present tense verb
These sentences use present tense verbs to describe actions that are happening now or on a regular basis. Encourage your Year 2 students to practise using present tense verbs in their writing and speaking and look for present tense verbs in the books they read. This worksheet asks children to choose the correct present tense verb from the word bank to complete the sentences.
