Wow! Pow! Ouch! Hurray! Interjection examples
Feelings and emotions! Excitement, anger, happiness, sadness, and more! We use them every day, even for expressing mild emotions. Learning interjections with kids is full of fun.
Idea 1: Watch “Interjections!” from Schoolhouse Rock: Season 2, Episode 4
I can’t believe this song was aired in 1973. (47 years ago!?!?!?) The song is very catchy and fun to sing along with. It helped my son a lot to understand the idea of what interjections are. School House Rock used to be available at abc.com, but they moved them to Disney+ (subscription required). You might be able to find them on YouTube, but maybe they are not officially posted.
Idea 2: Make a comic with a lot of interjections
I found the excellent blog, “Picklebums.com.” Her blog has SO MANY great activity ideas for kids and offers fabulous free printables. I downloaded her free printable comic book templates (from picklebums.com), and we had so much fun!
