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. This part of speech is often found more commonly in informal settings where it be written or vocal speech. They are created by a single word or phrase. In some cases, they can even be a short clause. The importance of interjections is that they help you convey your feelings and emotions better in your sentences. There are many different forms that interjections can take on. They can be used as adjectives, nouns, and even sounds. For example, they can be used to mimic a sound in the series: Whew! That was a close one! As we can see, just from that example, interjections can help author get some real emotion out of their written work.

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.
