In this lesson, students will learn about the different types of sentences: declarative, imperative, interrogative, and exclamatory. They will learn how to identify these sentences, correct them if needed, and write them.



Learning objective

Students will be able to recognize and create declarative, imperative, interrogative, and exclamatory sentences.


Students will read words with no punctuation and discuss what is missing. As a class, talk about why it was difficult to read.


Explain that a declarative statement is a complete thought that tells something. Tell students to add a period to the end of these thoughts. Students will identify sentences that contain periods. Next, they will practice adding periods to the paragraph from the introduction. Explain that a question, or interrogative sentence, is a sentence that asks something and ends with a question mark. Students will read four imperative sentences and discuss what they have in common. To practice, they will pick a picture and write an imperative sentence to match it. Explain that an exclamatory sentence shows strong feelings and ends with an exclamation point.

Students will add the correct punctuation to sentences. Next, they will determine the sentence type for several sentences.


Students will respond to ten multiple-choice questions.


Students will recall:
- What kind of punctuation does each sentence type have?

Students will spin the wheel to decide the type of sentence they should write.
