Indicate an Omission With an Ellipsis

Indicate an Omission With an Ellipsis

In this eighth-grade grammar and mechanics worksheet, students will learn how to use an ellipsis to indicate an omission when quoting from a text! Learners will read a longer sentence and then create a shortened quotation of each text, using an ellipsis to indicate any omissions. When using an ellipsis, the new quotation must maintain correct grammar and preserve the original meaning of the text. Part of an eighth-grade grammar curriculum, this is also a useful skill for citing evidence in research writing or argument writing.
