Interjections are exclamations--attention getters. They're used to make someone notice them and to show excitement. They are usually followed by and exclamation point (!) or sometimes a comma.

Here are a few interjections (these are only common ones, many others could be included): wow, ouch, oops, hey, watch, oh, yes, no, move, stop, help


Here's some sentences. Can you spot the interjections?

1. Ouch! Stop pinching me.

2. Yes, she did win the game.

3. Wow! That's a surprise.

4. Oh, you're going too?

Were those easy to recognize? Remember, most interjections are followed by an exclaimatin point, and almost all are located at the beginning of a sentence. _________________________________________________________________________________
