An Introduction To Exclamations

Exclamatory Words #1

Worksheet Description

This educational resource is a worksheet titled “Exclamatory Words,” designed to teach students about the use of exclamatory words in sentences.

Exclamatory words are defined as those that express feelings and are typically set apart in a sentence with specific punctuation. The worksheet explains that such words often communicate strong emotions and are followed by an exclamation point, whereas words that convey milder or neutral feelings are followed by a comma.

The worksheet provides clear instructions, asking students to begin each of the listed sentences with an appropriate exclamatory word, complemented by proper punctuation. Five sentences are presented, each depicting a different situation that would naturally elicit a strong emotional response, such as humor, loudness, surprise, discomfort from cold, or dislike for a specific food.

Additionally, students are encouraged to write three original sentences starting with exclamatory words, allowing them to practice their understanding of the concept creatively. The format is neatly organized and easy to understand, making it a useful tool for teaching the nuances of expressive language.
