Objective(s): By the end of this lesson the student will be able to: 
1. List and define the eight parts of speech
2. Identify and use correctly, interjections in any sentence.

Pre Class Assignment: 
Resources/Equipment/Time Required: 

The interjection is the eighth of the eight parts of speech. Just for the record, here are all eight:

noun, pronoun, adjective, verb, adverb, preposition, conjunction, and interjection.

Let's start with a basic definition:

Interjections are exclamatory words that express strong emotion. Interjections have no other grammatical  connection with or relationship to the rest of the sentence.

Interjections may be followed by either commas or exclamation points. Examples of both follow:

              Ouch! That hurt!

              Oh, what a wonderful movie!

              Great! What a terrific idea!

              Aha! I've found your secret!

              Alas, the poet was no more. 

Assignment(s) including Answer key: 

              Find the interjections in the following sentences.

1. Goodness! He listened to the man's story and reported it to the police immediately! 

2. Oh, I haven't seen my brother since he left for college! 


3. Oops! I dropped the jelly.


4. No! Don't touch that!


5. Help! I'm about to fall!


6. The poor dear was, alas, destitute and hungry.


7. Wait! Don't leave me behind in this cave!


8. Ah, I've heard that trick before.
