This song helps students to remember the differences between the four types of sentences. We used hand signals to aid in the memorization.
The first verse (declarative) involves clapping hands together and pushing them out to form a period with your hands. This move is repeated four times, once per line.
For the second verse (interrogative) we clapped once and then put our hands to the side in a questioning stance. Again, this is repeated four times, once per line.
For exclamatory we clapped once and through our arms in the air excitedly. Lastly, for interrogative, we pointed a finger up and down to show giving a command.
