Our book of the week this week is Alexander’s Outing by Pamela Allen. Within this story there is the use of exclamation marks. As we read the story we pointed out where the exclamation marks were used and why.
The exclamation mark is a punctuation mark usually used after an interjection or exclamation to indicate strong feelings or high volume (shouting), or to show emphasis, and often marks the end of a sentence. Example: “Watch out!”
1JM ran out of time after mass practice to write today but instead we played a oral language game. I gave them statements, sentences and questions and they had to shout out what we would need at the end. Either full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
1MR wrote a descriptive text about a duck and then we revisited ‘exclamation’ learning with 1JM in the afternoon.
