For many, the countdown to summer has begun. Students (and teachers) find it hard to concentrate on school. Keeping everyone engaged and on task can be quite the challenge! This is the time of year when a game is in order! This month we have a grammar review game for you. It’s perfect to practice parts of speech and could even be used across the curriculum to reinforce content.
Lesson of the Month: Grammar Game “Chain Reaction”
Objective: Students will review parts of speech and play “Chain game”
Materials: PowerPoint of “Chain game,” (see download below)
Here’s what you’ll do:
*This would be a great way to review a content unit. Create your own sentences and add them to the game. Make sure to include parts of speech you have covered throughout the year.
*A layered activity could be to used identify more specific parts of speech in the game (ex: common noun instead of just noun)
(Sentence) The (article adjective) boy (noun) jogged (verb) around (preposition) the (article adjective) track (noun).
