This PowerPoint slideshow will help your students identify and write questions and exclamations. The students begin with an explanation of these two types of sentences, a list of question beginners (Who, What, When, Where…), and examples of questions and exclamations from a “spidery” conversation. Then, students examine ten sentences, finding the two errors in each (capitalization, punctuation, word confusion, misspelling, etc). Six multiple choice problems follow, as students select the one that correctly completes the sentence. Five open-ended problems culminate this lesson, giving students a chance to create their own questions or exclamations.
Each sentence is based on a funny .gif image and the entire slideshow is fully animated (just click on the arrow to advance to the next slide). This lesson is perfect for whole-class instruction, and you can place it on student-computers for independent review.
