This product will help you to review EXCLAMATORY and IMPERATIVE sentence types with your students with a fun, interactive game! A second version of the entire game is included using the words EXCLAMATION and COMMAND if you use that terminology instead, or if you need to differentiate with simpler language for some of your students.
For this fun game, each of your students will make “sentence signs” that are simple pencil toppers. One side says “EXCLAMATORY!” (or, “EXCLAMATION!”) and the other side says “IMPERATIVE!” (or, “COMMAND!”). Students will sit with a partner or in a small group. As the educator, you will lead the game by reading through a set of 12 Thanksgiving-themed sentences. After you read each sentence, your students will hold up their “sentence signs” with the correct answer facing you while shouting out the sentence type as a group. They will LOVE this!
But, there’s more! For each sentence that is IMPERATIVE (or, a COMMAND), you will pause and allow your students time to stand up and ACT OUT or MIME the command! This will be fun and silly, all while helping them to remember the terminology for the sentence types!
Throughout the game, your students will follow along with a worksheet, correctly marking each sentence type. There is a second follow-up worksheet, that they can complete independently, where they will practice writing their own exclamatory sentences (or, exclamations) and imperative sentences (or, commands) with a Thanksgiving or autumn theme.
This is a FUN, ENGAGING, and highly INTERACTIVE way to practice a variety of important language arts skills. The best part? This is a no-prep. game! Simply print and go - no cutting and no laminating for you! The “sentence signs” pencil toppers can be made in 5 minutes or less by your students. It’s the perfect activity for those exciting few days of school leading up to Thanksgiving!
