Ask or Tell sentences game


This unique printable game is a way to get kindergarteners or first graders actively practicing two types of sentences and their end punctuation:

  • asking sentences — interrogative — question marks
  • telling sentences — declarative — periods

Included is a double-sided sign and 50 sentence cards in two styles — with and without end punctuation (total of 100 cards).  Give each child a sign, and hold up one card at a time, reading the sentence.  Have each child silently hold up their sign with the side facing you that shows whether they think it is an asking or a telling sentence — and needs a question mark or a period.  Choose a different child each time to explain their choice.

The cards may also be used alone as flashcards, or print both sets and match the two versions of the sentences — with and without end punctuation.
