Use a hyphen to create a compound adjective -  fun dice game: 'Creepy compound adjective creator'

Use a hyphen to create a compound adjective - fun dice game: 'Creepy compound adjective creator'

Assessment focus I can use a hyphen to combine words and create compound adjectives. Explanation Children need to understand how hyphens can be used to avoid ambiguity (e.g. man eating shark versus man-eating shark, or recover versus re-cover). Also, an understanding of hyphens can add descriptive depth to noun phrases (e.g. the creature) when they are used to form compound adjectives (the ferocious-looking creature). In the compound adjective ‘ferocious-looking’, the hyphen shows that the two component words have a combined meaning. Aim: using the ‘dice guide’, roll to create six compound adjectives with hyphens that you could use before a noun (e.g. muddle-headed monster). Write definitions for your compound adjectives on your ‘game card’. Keep unusual or ridiculous combinations too! Have fun playing with words!

expanded noun phrases, dice game, adjectives, preposition phrases, rich vocabulary

There are lots of resources already available for expanded noun phrases, but none that really challenge to children to develop their vocabulary and make really adventurous and precise choices. This dice game is fully differentiated into three versions. In its simplest form, children add adjectives to nouns. In its most challenging form, children may have to add two compound adjectives and a preposition phrase. It all depends on the roll of a dice. Of course, teachers that love using my games will have guessed that already!

The images in this pack can be used with classes of all ages and backgrounds, and in different ways according to the teacher’s skills and inclinations. Following is a list of the contents and some possible uses. 1. A set of 50 high quality JPEG images that can be printed out for use in games and tasks of many kinds. 2.
