To make a sentence you need a CAPITAL letter, a period, and an apple that doesn’t mind being chased around too much.  

Watch this video to learn how to make your sentences the bestest that they can be!

Lyrics

A sentence begins with a Capital Letter,
A Capital Letter is a letter that’s big,
A Capital Letter is NOT a small letter,
A Capital Letter is big big BIG!

A sentence ends with a Period,
Or an Exclamation or a Question Mark,
A sentence always ends with a Period,
Or an Exclamation or a Question Mark

So, “My dog is great.” is a sentence,
The M is a capital, yeah that’s right,
So “My dog is great.” is a sentence
And it ends with period that’s right!

So, “Do you like bugs?” is a sentence,
the D is a capital, yeah its big!
But “Do you like bugs? is also question,
So therefore it ends with a Question Mark!

So, “There is a monster!” is a sentence,
the T is a capital, yeah its big!
But “There is a monster!” has a strong feeling,
Therefore it ends with an Exclamation Mark!

A sentence begins with a Capital Letter,
A Capital Letter is a letter that’s big,
A Capital Letter is NOT a small letter,
A Capital Letter is big big BIG!

A sentence ends with a Period,
Or an Exclamation or a Question Mark,
A sentence always ends with a Period,
Or an Exclamation or a Question Mark

    Teaching summer school and my elementary school students are loving this song! They have to create a presentation that explains what a sentence is and they have all chosen to use this fun song.

    Keep ’em coming!
