My Teacher Likes to Say - Freebie!

I've had the book My Teacher Likes to Say for a few years and love to use it when I'm teaching expressive language and writing quotations.

If you haven't seen it or its companion book, My Momma Likes to Say, click on my Amazon Associate links below to check them out.

I have finally made some activities to go with the book and am sharing one of them here. This one targets writing quotations correctly, but you could require the students to use expressive or figurative language when writing their quotations.

Visit my TpT store by clicking {HERE} to see the whole packet for more activities focusing on writing quotations and using expressive language. It addresses the following standards:

 L 3.2.c Use commas and quotation marks in dialogue.
L 3.3.a  Choose words and phrases for effect.
L 3.4.a Use sentence-level context as a clue to the meaning of a word or phrase.
L 3.5 Demonstrate understanding of word relationships and nuances in word meanings.
L 3.5.a Distinguish the literal and nonliteral meanings of words and phrases in context (e.g., take steps).

L.4.2.b  Use commas and quotation marks to mark direct speech and quotations from a text.
L.4.5  Demonstrate understanding of figurative language, word relationships, and nuances in word meanings.
L.4.5.a  Explain the meaning of simple similes and metaphors (e.g., as pretty as a picture) in context.
