Sentences: End marks
An end mark is a punctuation mark used at the end of a sentence to show that the sentence is finished. There are three end marks.
(.) This is a period or full stop. It comes at the end of a telling sentence.
(?) This is a question mark. It comes at the end of an asking sentence (sometimes called an interrogative sentence).
(!) This is an exclamation mark, or exclamation point. It comes at the end of a sentence that shows strong feeling (sometimes called an exclamatory sentence).

We’re making it easy to find, integrate, and share character-rich, curriculum-aligned resources for Kindergarten to Grade 2. It’s time to streamline virtual learning and make it fun.
In line with both the Common Core Standards (US) and the National Curriculum (UK), children are expected to develop a mastery of grammar that will help them become proficient in their use of written and oral language.
Mastery of grammar requires an understanding of concepts such as the different parts of speech (e.g. noun, verb, adjective), the different tenses of verbs (e.g. play-played, go-went), the plural of nouns (e.g. pen-pens, box-boxes, man-men), the syntax of simple and complex sentences and questions, and the correct use of punctuation.
