Title: Penguin Dialogue: Learning to Use Dialogue Tags

The penguin video should be used as an extension to a lesson on dialogue tags. Students will watch a penguin dialogue video without the sound as they imagine what the penguins are saying to each other. Then the sound is turned up so the students can hear the dialogue. As a class activity on a board, students will write the dialogue using dialogue tags. (Examples include Sally shouted, Sue cried, etc.)
