There are 4 kinds of sentences that help you make a paragraph
The punctuation at the end tells me whether you cried or laughed....
Are the 4 kinds
DECLARATIVE's a statement. It tells you what you need to know
A period is at the end... there's no emotion there to show....
Like, MY NAME'S SUSAN....or, HERE COMES HARRY.
or, THAT TEAM'S LOSIN'.....or, I LIKE STRAWBERRY.
And ends with a dot.
IMPERATIVE is a command....it tells you what you need to do
A period is how it ends, but bat and baseball sometimes too....
Like, SET THE TABLE......or, FEED THE CAT.
or, GIVE ME MONEY!!!..... or, DON'T TOUGH THAT!!!
Depends on your voice....!!!
Then there's INTERROGATIVE.... a question mark is how it ends
It asks you something you don't know....
Like, WILL WE ALWAYS BE FRIENDS?
or, WHERE IS ALICE? or........WHO'S GOT MONEY?
or.......WHEN IS DINNER? or......IS THAT FUNNY?
or......WHY ARE WE HERE?
Last we have EXCLAMATORY... it tells how a person's feeling
Showing anger or excitement,
bat and baseball show what we are dealing with...
Like....CALL THE POLICE!!! or....MY HOUSE IS ON FIRE!!!
or.....DON'T TOUCH THAT WIRE!!! or.....THIS SURE WAS FUN!!!
