Teaching the Four Types of Sentences

My class has been working on the four types of sentence over the last week.  This always seems to be a tricky concept for some students.  I think it's remembering the name of the sentences more so than knowing the reason for the sentence.  For whatever reason; declarative, interrogative, imperative, and exclamatory are just hard words to remember!  My solution to help students who just couldn't grasp the concept was to make a jar (of course)!  My Sentence Jar has several activities and games for students to play.

It comes with anchor charts for the four types of sentences (I've included the terms statement, question, command, and exclamation as well).  These can be used to introduce the types and then displayed in the room to remind students of the names.  Students can play BINGO, sort sentences, and search for sentences.  I also included an editable Power Point so teachers can make more BINGO cards and add their own sentences.  Here are a few more photos of the jar in action.

My students really enjoyed playing the BINGO game!  We will see if these activities helped when they are assessed on Friday.
My Sentence Jar is on sale for 50% off in my TpT store for the next 24 hours!
