The four types of sentences are the declarative, imperative, exclamatory and (last but not least,) the interrogative sentences~

#### Explanation:

Did any of you wonder if they were different kinds in sentences, too? Well, you can find the answer right here!

Quick Review: A sentence is a group of words that express a complete thought. A sentence is made out of two parts-the subject and predicate. The subject tells who are what it (the sentence) is about and the predicate tells us something about the subject!

These are the $\textcolor{p u r p \le}{\text{4 Types of Sentences}}$!:

$\textcolor{p u r p \le}{\text{Declarative}}$: Makes a statement and ends with a period.
$\textcolor{b l a c k}{\text{Ex.}}$ The dog walked out of the house.

$\textcolor{p u r p \le}{\text{Imperative}}$: Expresses a command or request and also ends with a period.
$\textcolor{b l a c k}{\text{Ex.}}$ Do your homework.

$\textcolor{p u r p \le}{\text{Exclamatory}}$: Shows excitement or strong feeling(s) and ends with an exclamation point (!).
$\textcolor{b l a c k}{\text{Ex.}}$ That's so cool!

$\textcolor{p u r p \le}{\text{Interrogative}}$: Asks a question and ends with a question mark (?).
$\textcolor{b l a c k}{\text{Ex.}}$ Are you feeling cold, sweetheart?
