The 4 Sentence Types

SO, I am knee deep into grammar with my kids. This year we have learned about prepositions, prepositional phrases, and I think we even survived conjugating verbs.  Goodness, my vocabulary is getting stout with all this grammar.  What I have today was inspired by the 4 sentence types: interrogative, exclamatory, imperative, and declarative.  For a 7 year old, imperative is a big word, and it occurred to me that an imperative sentence is a bossy sentence.  The question will be if he still remembers what an imperative sentence is, but maybe, just maybe, that little word bossy will make it all stick in his brain just a little bit better.

What this means is that I got creative and worked on some designs for the 4 sentence types.  Maybe it will help a little or big person learn some grammar.  Click here for the PDF.
