Students will practice identifying declarative and interrogative sentences during this activity. Students must determine the type of sentence in order to correctly decide if each sentences ends with the correct punctuation mark. It is ideal for stations, centers, or small group time, as it encourages discussion about the content. I have found the different types of sentences to be a difficult common core standard for my first grade students. Students will have fun during this activity, while they apply the skill of identifying types of sentences.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.1.1.J Produce and expand complete simple and compound declarative, interrogative, imperative, and exclamatory sentences in response to prompts.
