Punctuation marks are amusing to use as we all need to make clear and meaningful sentences to understand one another. Also, you can let your students know the different Grade 1 punctuation marks (part 1).
WHAT ARE PUNCTUATION MARKS?
Punctuation marks are symbols that help us understand sentences better.
We start sentences with capital letters and end them with punctuation marks.
GRADE 1 PUNCTUATION MARKS (PART 1)
Grade 1 punctuation marks (part 1) are periods, exclamation marks, and question marks.
Periods at the End of a Sentence
Periods end statements. They explain something. We use this punctuation mark at the end of a telling sentence. While reading sentences, we need to pause after a period. Periods end sentences that are not questions or exclamations.
- She is a girl.
- The children are playing.
- Paul is going to school.
- Bella has a doll.
Exclamation Marks (!)
Exclamation marks show strong emotions or display excitement. They end exclamations.
- There comes that storm!
- That crocodile is huge!
- Ouch! That hurts!
- Run away from there!
Question Marks (?)
Question marks end questions and ask something. We use words like what, who, which, where, when, and whose. We use question marks after a direct question. The question can be a short word or a whole sentence.
Who refers to a person.
When refers to the time of something.
Where refers to a location.
Whose Indicates something belonging to someone.
What indicates asking for information specifying something.
Which portrays asking for information specifying one or more people or things from a category.
- Who are you going to meet?
- Where are you going?
- When is the event?
- Which is the prettiest?
- Whose bag is it?
- What is the colour of your shirt?
