Why and how is a song about Interjections effective for students?
Interjections are a form of dialog that can set a tone or mood within text. This video explains that interjections are only used when a human is feeling intense emotions. Verse one highlights “happy” interjections, while verse two highlights “unhappy” interjections. The song encourages students to recognize and use interjections to add entertainment value and expression within their writing.
Great! What related activities are included with the video?
Allow students to brainstorm interjections that they use/hear in everyday life. Note that interjections are generally used when someone is very happy or very upset and are often punctuated using quotation marks. Also, allow the student to record actual interjections they use on index cards (one interjection on each card). As a whole class activity, categorize the type of emotion the person using the interjection would be feeling to create a graphic organizer on a whiteboard or chart paper. Categorizing them can be a valuable way to give meaning to this concept.
