Wow! These activity sheets are the absolute best for teaching your students about interjections!

An interjection is an abrupt remark, usually punctuated with an exclamation point. They indicate excitement, fear, or other extreme reactions. The following collection of worksheets will help your students identify and use interjections correctly. Activities include identifying interjections within sentences, writing interjections that match the sentence, correcting wrong interjections, choosing interjections based on picture clues, and more. Please note: While answer sheets have been provided, in some cases, answers will vary by student.

Fun Project Idea: Have your students perform the Schoolhouse Rock “Interjections!” song (available on YouTube) for extra reinforcement of the definition and use of interjections.
