- Learn the function of question marks and exclamation marks
- Use them accurately in their own writing
Most sentences end in full stops but there are times when a writer needs to use a question mark or an exclamation mark.
Can the class say why these would be used?
A question mark comes at the end of a question.
- "What are you doing?" asked Tim.
An exclamation mark can be used when someone is excited or shouting or if they are saying something that's strange or surprising.
- "I've just seen a flying pig!" exclaimed Shelley.
