Teaching Types of Sentences

Hi! This is Courtney from Swimming into Second. I'm stopping by today to share a book that I recently found to teach different types of sentences. I ordered this book at the end of last school year and just remembered that I have it. #toomanybooks


I have recently just finished teaching the 4 different types of sentences and I thought this book would be a great review. I love that the characters in each book only say a certain type of sentence and their names are related to this. For example, Declara only says declarative sentences.

For our review, I read my students this book. Then, I pulled sentences from the text and typed them up without punctuation marks. In groups, the students had to add the correct punctuation marks to the sentences and then glue them on a piece of chart paper.

Declarative sentences and Interrogative sentences are on the other side of the paper.

This was a great review of the sentences and I heard some great discussion going on about why the sentences had to have certain marks.

I have these sentences available as a freebie for you. Click here to grab the freebie.

There are a few other books in this language series that you also might be interested in. You can check them out below.


If you enjoyed this post, I would love it if you would leave me a comment or come visit me on my blog.  Have a great day!
