Day 21 / 103 - Sentence Purposes

Another task we complete regularly in our Essentials curriculum is identifying and rewriting a sentence by its purpose (Declarative, Imperative, Exclamatory, Interrogative).  This activity, that I did with my own children, along with their Essentials class earlier this week, helped them to review and begin mastering the purposes. 

We started with a Simple, Subject - Verb Intransitive sentence.  We wrote it as a declarative sentence.  Then as an imperative sentence.  Next as an exclamatory sentence.  And finally, as an interrogative sentence.  I gave the students post-it notes, each color corresponding to a different sentence purpose.  They wrote their sentences on the post-it notes and stuck them to the board.
