“This is a lesson on Quotation marks.”

Page 2: Gingerbread Man  Quotations

A woman was baking one day, and she made some gingerbread. She had some dough left over, so she made the shape of a little man. She made eyes for him, a nose and a smiling mouth. Then she laid him on a baking tray and put him into the oven to bake. After a little while, she heard something rattling at the oven door. She opened it and to her surprise out jumped the little gingerbread man. She tried to catch him as he ran across the kitchen, but he slipped past her, calling as he ran...

The Story of the Gingerbread Man

Page 3: Gingerbread Man  Quotations

"Run, run, as fast as you can, You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man!”

As he ran down the road he passed a cow. The cow called out, "Stop, gingerbread man! You look good to eat!" But the gingerbread man laughed and shouted over his shoulder:

"I've run from an old woman And an old man. Run, run, as fast as you can,

You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man!”

The Story of the Gingerbread Man

Page 4: Gingerbread Man  Quotations

The cow ran after the old woman and the old man, and soon they all passed a horse. "Stop!" called out the horse, "I'd like to eat you." But the gingerbread man called out:

"I've run from an old woman And an old man, And a cow! Run, run, as fast as you can,

You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man!” The horse joined in the chase behind the old woman and the old man, the cow and the horse, and they all followed, him as he ran through the fields.

The Story of the Gingerbread Man

Page 5: Gingerbread Man  Quotations

There he met a fox, so he called out to the fox: "Run, run, as fast as you can,

You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man!” But the sly fox said, "Why should I bother to catch you?" although he thought to himself, "That gingerbread man would be good to eat.” Just after he had run past the fox the gingerbread man had to stop because he came to a wide, deep, swift-flowing river. The fox saw the old woman and the old man, the cow, the horse all chasing the gingerbread man so he said, ”Jump on my back, and I'll take you across the river!”

The Story of the Gingerbread Man

Page 6: Gingerbread Man  Quotations

The gingerbread man jumped on the fox's back and the fox began to swim. As they reached the middle of the river, where the water was deep, the fox said, "Can you stand on my head, Gingerbread Man, or you will get wet." So the gingerbread man pulled himself up and stood on the fox's head. As the current flowed more swiftly, the fox said, “Can you move on to my nose, Gingerbread Man, so that I can carry you more safely? I would not like you to drown.” The gingerbread man slid on to the fox's nose. But when they reached the bank of the river, the fox suddenly went snap! The gingerbread man disappeared into the fox's mouth, and was never seen again.

Quotations

Good story! Did you notice the quotation marks?

Quotation marks form a neat little bracket around the exact words that someone has said.

Example: “Run, run, as fast as you can, You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man!”

Confusion can occur when you try to figure out where to place the other punctuation marks.

“I don’t really know where the

comma belongs,” said

Gingy

Quotations – The Comma

When a quotation is introduced, the comma goes outside the quotation marks.

The Gingerbread Man said, “You can’t catch me.”

To close a quotation, the comma goes inside.

“You can’t catch me,” said the Gingerbread Man.

Quotations – The Comma

These rules also apply to longer quotations that are split into two.

“Run as fast as you like,” said the Gingerbread Man, “but you can’t catch me!”

Page 10: Gingerbread Man  Quotations

Quotations –ending marks

Provided they’re part of the quotation, question marks and exclamation points always go inside.

The Gingerbread Man said, “You can’t catch me!”

Question marks and exclamation points go outside if they’re not part of the quotation.

Did the Gingerbread Man really say, “You can’t catch me”?
