Using Capital Letters
what good writers do
Sentences have different purposes. Some make statements. Some ask questions. Others give
commands, and still others express strong feelings.
Here are the four types of sentences by purpose:
➲ A declarative sentence makes a statement or expresses an opinion. Use a period at
the end of a declarative sentence.
Andy Murray has a great will to win.
The commentator laughed at his own mistake.
➲ An interrogative sentence asks a question and ends with a question mark.
Are you using the saw today, Mitch?
May the other people come along with us?
➲ An exclamatory sentence expresses strong feeling and ends with an exclamation mark.
This is just the way to do it!
That is great news!
➲ An imperative sentence gives a command (strong emotion) or makes a request (mild
emotion). Use an exclamation after the imperative sentence that contains a strong
emotion, and a period after one that contains a mild emotion.
Stop that foolish talk now!
Please take the empty plate away now, Ira.

Research shows that involving kids in chores and projects around the house is one of the best ways to build self-esteem and help kids feel competent. Doing so lets them know that you believe theyre capable of handling important tasks, which is an incredibly powerful message for kids. Children who grow up perceiving chores as a normal part of life are more likely to complete their education, get a good start on a career, develop successful relationships, and avoid risky behaviors.
These 9 ways to be a better parent may sound simple, but research shows that, when combined, they can help your sons and daughters grow in body, mind, and spirit.
