Is It An Asking or a Telling Sentence?

My kids have a LOT of trouble knowing the difference between an asking sentence and a telling sentence.  How many of us ask the kids a question like," who has a cat?".  Then the hands go up and you proceed to get statements like, "my grandma's cat sleeps with her" or  "I saw a cat  today".  So, I thought this may help them start to think about the difference between the two.  They need to read the bunny sign and then decide which pile it goes in.  When they are finished they must (well, at least mine) write out some of the sentences and put the correct punctuation mark at the end.  This is a follow up to the "Is It a Sentence?" cards I made back in January.  Wow, that seems so long ago! Enjoy.
