    Cute idea
    By Madeline

    A teacher gave me this idea and it worked well. After you teach the rule for dialogue, give each student a tiny cup (bathroom size) filled with elbow macaroni noodles. Then give each child a sentence strip with dialogue written on it, and they have to use the macaroni noodles to correctly place the commas and quotation marks. Then they have to copy the sentence correctly with the right punctuation. It's a fun way for students to learn!
