Interjections and Emoji for 5th Graders

Today when I met with the two 5th Grade students that I am tutoring, we continued on our journey to understand the function of interjections in writing and in our speech.

After doing a bit of research on the Internet, I realized that emoji are "emoticons." Check out this chart that attempts to describe the feelings shown with the emoji.
The definition of emoticons is:
A pictorial representation of a facial expression to express a person's feelings or mood, or as a time-saving method.

So hopefully you can see the connection between interjections in speech and writing ... and emoticons.

So I decided to make a series of cards showing different emoji characters and have my student connect it to an interjection.
😓 = Oh no!
Then we used that interjection in dialogue.
"Oh no! My mother is going to be so angry when she see this broken dish."
Lastly, we wrote a sentence that might be in a narrative writing.
Oh no! The teacher saw me pass that note to Ali. 

I was trying to make connections between ways we use interjections.  
Yippee! I believe they understood. 😊 

Smiles,
Deborah
