PowerPoint on choosing correct connectives animated pictures to illustrate sentences, with interactivity to allow children to choose a connective and read the resulting sentence to see if it makes sense.
This is a whopping 95 page word doc. containing all 30 of my grammar games. This represents a fair few evenings and weekends (I know - get a life!). All of these games have been tested in class and adjusted if needed - they have a real impact on learning.<br />
For each grammar skill there is:<br />
a child friendly explanation of the grammar concept; printable rules and resources for a lively dice game; suggestions to challenge or support learners; suggestions for application of the skill in written work.<br />
For some grammar games there is also a lesson plan and a presentation. <br />
Here are some of the skills covered: <br />
commands, questions and statements/ simple and compound sentences/ adverbs/ proper nouns/ classifying nouns/ contractions/ pronouns/ prepositions/prepositional phrases/ apostrophes/ adjectives/ sentence variety/ parentheses/semi-colons/ discussion/ persuasion/ complex sentences / causal connectives/ fronted adverbials/ speech/ relative clauses/ modal verbs
Children are expected to capitalise proper nouns from Year 1 onwards, but many children in Key Stage 2 find this tricky to remember. Often, children do not understand the difference between common and proper nouns.<br />
This lesson, complete with presentation and an exciting game, will give children experience of using a wide variety of proper nouns, from book titles to shop names.<br />
Classes about to undertake the Y6 Grammar Test would find this a useful refresher on common and proper nouns.<br />
Make missing capital letters a thing of the past by playing: 'How many capital letters?'
