In this unit students will demonstrate knowledge of Standard English sentence structure. They will recognize sentence types - statements, questions, commands, and exclamations - and apply appropriate end marks when writing and vocal intonation when speaking. Students will identify declarative, interrogative, and exclamatory sentences by recognizing appropriate end marks through games, songs, and group work. Students will identify declarative sentences in an excerpt from The Journey of the Noble Gnarble. Students will create two interrogative sentences based on an article. One question will have a yes or no answer and the other question will have an explanatory answer. Students will effectively use different types of sentences to create a play. Rubrics and handouts are provided for each day of the lesson.
