Writing of Sentences

Welcome to today’s class!!

We are excited to have you join our class!!

In today’s English class, we will be learning about Writing of Sentences

Writing of Sentences

Let’s use our first three paragraphs to explain different types of sentences.

  1. Every sentence is unique. That’s a declarative sentence. 
  2. But what makes every sentence unique? That’s an interrogative sentence. 
  3. When you understand each type of sentence, you will become a better student. That’s a conditional sentence. 

Understanding the different sentence types and how they function together in your writing is more than just recognizing them. 

Sentences can be grouped in two ways: based on their function and based on their structure. When you describe a sentence based on its function, you are describing it based on what it does. 

Let’s take a look at them one after the other.

Declarative Sentences

A declarative sentence is a sentence that:

  • Makes a statement
  • Provides an explanation
  • Passes one or more facts

Declarative sentences are among the most common sentences in the English language. You use them every day. 

They end with periods.

Here are a few examples of declarative sentences: 

  • I forgot to wear a tie today.

forgot something

  • Your snacks are doughy because they didn’t bake long enough.

doughy snacks

Interrogative Sentences

An interrogative sentence is a sentence that asks a question, like:

  • How many pet puppies do you have?

  • Aren’t there enough pencils to go around?

One thing to note about interrogative sentences is that they usually begin with pronouns or auxiliary verbs. When this kind of sentence does start with the subject, it’s usually in a  familiar form of conversation. For example:

  • He went there again?

  • Rats can’t swim, right?

Exclamatory Sentences

Much like when an interrogative question ends with a question mark, an exclamatory sentence ends with an exclamation mark. These sentences communicate a high emotion and are often used as greetings, warnings, or  cries. Examples include:

  • Hey!

hey

  • This is SpongeBob!

In summary, remember that sentences can be grouped in two ways: based on their function and based on their structure. When you describe a sentence based on its function, you are describing it based on what it does.
