Punctuation: How to Use Exclamation Marks

Punctuation: How to Use Exclamation Marks

Forty writing challenges in four workbooks with additional creative challenges. Detailed step-by-step guidance in two sets of slides with additional notes for teachers and parents. Covers all aspects of the curriculum including: - Sequence sentences to form short narratives - Separate words with spaces - Use spacing between words that reflects the size of the letters. - Understanding how grammatical patterns in a sentence indicate its function as an exclamation - Using an exclamation mark with an interjection - Identify and use appropriate end punctuation to demarcate different sentence types (exclamation) - Using exclamation marks both for emphasis in statements and commands, and to mark exclamations Challenges are provided on editable slides. They can be used to demonstrate approaches to writing sentences and edited to create your own additional challenges. Challenges are based on a theme of 'mermaids and water monsters' to stimulate creative thinking and writing. Each challenge involves some unpunctuated text for children to rewrite with punctuation. These are accompanied by fun challenges that range from creative to silly. Challenges can be checked using the 'Sentence Check Sheets'. These accompany each set of challenges and progressively increase the methods of punctuation to check. Space is provided for a self-check and a peer-check. The main guidance slides can also be printed off to make a colourful class display and a helpful reference. Includes versions in British-English and US-English

Dolphin Wordsearch Animals The Sea Nature Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Dolphin Wordsearch Animals The Sea Nature Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Dolphins'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
