Written by

These Grade 5 Grammar and Creative Writing Worksheets are for understanding and practice purpose.

Dialogue

Writing Prompt: On a piece, write a story that includes a conversation between at least two characters.

Writing prompts may instruct you to write about fiction or nonfiction. If the prompt does not specify, feel free to make up a story or draw from personal experience. In this prompt, either will work.


Before you begin writing, you’ll need to brainstorm ideas for your story. Think: Who will be your characters? What will they be talking about? There are many different answers to each of these questions, so your story should be unique.


Take a look at the two sample answers provided in response to the given writing prompt. Sample answer number one is a story with dialogue between two sisters, Bella and Cassie. They are playing dress up together and talking about their activities.


In sample answer number two, the author writes a story with dialogue from an encounter with his mom and brother before school one day. They talk about getting ready for school.

Sample Answer #1

“Bella, do you want to play a game with me?” asks her twin sister Cassie.

“Yeah, that sounds like fun!” exclaimed Bella. “Do you want to play dress up? We can pretend we’re princesses.”
“Yeah, let go play.”

Bella and Cassie went to the playroom together where they found a box of dress up clothes including dresses, skirts, tiaras, and shoes. Bella put on a pink dress and then handed Cassie a purple one.


“Here,” Bella said to Cassie, “I think this one will look really pretty on you.”


“Thanks!” Cassie got dressed and then said, “Now we need tiaras and shoes. We won’t look like princesses without the tiaras.”


“Of course!” shouted Bella. She ran over to the box and pulled out two tiaras. One had pink jewels and the other had purple jewels. “Which one do you want?” she asked.


“I want the purple one so it can match my dress,” said Cassie.


“Here you go!” Bella said, handing her the tiara before putting on her own. Then, the two of them played the rest of the night as princesses.
