  • Question 1

What is this?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
A question mark
EDDIE SAYS
How did you get on? This is a question mark. We use this instead of a full stop to show someone has asked a question.
  • Question 2

What is this?

exclamation mark 

CORRECT ANSWER
An exclamation mark
EDDIE SAYS
This is an exclamation mark. We use this instead of a full stop to show when something is exciting, scary or shouting. Keep going super star!
  • Question 3

Type this sentence again with a capital letter to start and a full stop to finish.

Fairies

the fairies are little

CORRECT ANSWER
The fairies are little.
EDDIE SAYS
You need to use a capital letter to start the sentence and a full stop must go after the last word in your sentence. Try the next question.
  • Question 4

Type this sentence again with a capital letter to start and a full stop to finish.

Pot of felt tip pens

here are the pens

CORRECT ANSWER
Here are the pens.
EDDIE SAYS
Did you put them in the correct place? The first letter of your first word must use a capital letter. This starts the sentence. You must show you have finished the sentence by using a full stop. Great effort, keep it up!
  • Question 5

Type this sentence again with a capital letter to start and a full stop to finish.

 

A pair of socks

i have two pink socks

CORRECT ANSWER
I have two pink socks.
EDDIE SAYS
Did you start your sentence with a capital letter? Remember you must use a full stop to show your sentence has finished. Amazing effort!
  • Question 6

Pick the best sentence.

 

Little girl cooking

CORRECT ANSWER
I love to cook!
EDDIE SAYS
An exclamation mark is used instead of a full stop to show excitement!
  • Question 7

Pick the best sentence.

 

Birthday party

CORRECT ANSWER
We are having a party!
EDDIE SAYS
Again in this example an exclamation mark is used instead of a full stop to show excitement! You still need to start your sentence with a capital letter. You can do this! Give the next question a go.
  • Question 8

 Pick the best sentence.

Red Train

CORRECT ANSWER
Can you see the train?
EDDIE SAYS
How did you get on? This sentence is asking a question so it needs a question mark at the end.
  • Question 9

 Pick the best sentence.

Zebra

CORRECT ANSWER
Do you like zebras?
EDDIE SAYS
Again this sentence is asking a question so it needs a question mark at the end. Keep it up superstar!

How will you finish your sentence?

 

Girl playing tennis

i love to play

CORRECT ANSWER
I love to play!
I love to play.
EDDIE SAYS
Fantastic effort! You can use either a full stop or an exclamation mark in this sentence. If we wanted the reader to read the sentence with excitement we could use an exclamation mark.
