Direct and Indirect Speech Posters

PDF | 2 pages|Grades: 4 - 7

Amazing Man helps students to learn what both direct and indirect speech entails as well as providing examples on how they can use it themselves.

Grasping the concept of direct speech can be somewhat challenging, but indirect speech is even trickier for kids! Use these posters as a visual reference to remind kids what each function is and how they can use it effectively in their writing.

I am unable to download this resource in a different font. I saw your above comment that you had created an updated version. Is it still available?
Thank you

I would love this in a different font please? Or a choice of fonts.

Hi Kelly-Ann,

Thank you for your comment… and your patience! This was one of our first ever resources, so it took a little bit of digging around to find the file we needed to edit.

Please feel free to download the updated version now, with a more generic, non-school based font.

If you have any further questions, please let me know. As always, I’m happy to help!

Kind regards,
