The Four Sentence Type Scenes (Mama Kat's Prompt)



Mama’s Losin’ It

5.) Who’d talk the most? Pretend three four sentence types–Declarative, Imperative, Interrogative, and Exclamatory–were people. Write an imaginary scene between them. (inspired by writingfix.com


 


As soon as I read this prompt I knew I wanted to do this with my kids. Fun, creative, and yet a great lesson (or review for the older kids) on the types of sentences. This is a great prompt to share with all my fellow homeschoolers and we really enjoyed it!  I kept it very low-key and low-pressure and we had a great time building silly stories with sentence types. Read on for the results!






Ryan: Has anyone seen my dog?
Nicole: No, but I want coffee.
Taylon: I want a dog!
Sam: Go find his dog. Now.
Ryan: Has anyone noticed we're talking about my DOG?
Taylon: Yes!
Nicole: I will help you find your dog.
Ryan: Do you think my dog is at Stop & Shop?
Sam: Go check.
Ryan: Are you sure?
Nicole: I can only find your dog if I get coffee.
Taylon: Let's have a party!
Ryan: Nicole, why do you need coffee?
Nicole: I love it.
Sam: Go get her coffee.
Ryan: Taylon, I thought we were trying to find my dog?
Taylon: I found your dog!
Nicole: Now I can have coffee.

The end.

Declarative:  So today I saw the cutest guy at the mall.
Interrogative: Did you talk to him?
Declarative: Yeah, his voice was all deep and awesome.
Exclamatory: Oh My Fudgey Gouda! That is legendary!
Interrogative: I know, right?
Declarative: Yeah, he was crazy awesome.
Interrogative: What happened next?
Declarative: I walked away.
Exclamatory: I cannot believe you just walked away!
Declarative: But...he gave me his number.
Exclamatory: That is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
Interrogative: Did you call him yet?
Exclamatory: You should call him!
Declarative: No, I haven't called him yet.
Interrogative: Why not?
Exclamatory: You should call him right now!
Interrogative: Yeah, why not call him now?
Declarative. I don't know. I'm just nervous.
Interrogative: So? If he's hot, why don't you call him?
Exclamatory: Yeah, he must be so hot!
Declarative: He is.
Imperative (the only guy in the room, subjected to this conversation): Shut up. Please for the love of Buddha, just shut up.
Interrogative: Are we annoying you?
Imperative: Just leave...now.

 **********************************************

 "I don't believe in fairies." Dec shook his head at Int, his expression revealing his disdain for the question. Int immediately clapped.

"He must believe in fairies. Make him believe." Imp whispered these words urgently into Int's ear but he merely brushed her away, as though an insect were annoying him.

"He doesn't believe in us!" Ex exclaimed, "We're real! We're right here! Open your eyes!"

"Stop shouting, Ex." Imp demanded. She waved her hand in front of Dec's face. 

"Do you see that?" Int asked hopefully.

"I see nothing," Dec declared, "except you standing in front of me with a crazy face."

"Why am I the crazy one?" Int pouted.

"You believe in nonsense." 

 "Nonsense! He dares call us nonsense!" Ex jumped up, ran towards him as fast as she could, grabbed him by the ankles, and sunk her tiny teeth into his leg. Dec swatted her away and she landed with a thump by his left foot.

"Nasty bugs." Dec said.

"Will you never see? Will you never open your eyes?" Int seemed sad at the thought of living life without seeing fairies.

"You will believe in fairies." Imp spoke into Dec's ear now, her voice firm. "You will believe in us and you will listen to Int."

"Do you hear that?" Int asked, his eyes wide as he stared at Dec and then Imp and back again at Dec. "Do you hear the fairy?"

"I don't believe in fairies." Dec stated firmly and before Int could clap, Imp had fallen dead at Dec's feet. 

"You killed her! You evil brute!"  Ex threw herself over Imp's body, crying, while Int clapped furiously. It was no use.

"Why did you do that?" Int's shoulders dropped and he stared at Dec in despair, "why can't you simply believe?"

"I'm all grown up." Dec said, "I believe in bills and taxes and hard work. I believe in schedules and lists and serious discussions. I do not believe in fairies."

Int clapped, as Ex sighed with relief. Tears pricked at his eyes as he asked, "What kind of life is that?"
