SPAG 78 English Grammar Dice Games
This is now the original 40 grammar dice games (a 145 page word document containing 40 fun grammar games) and also 38 more grammar games (included in a zip folder). Unlike a lot of sellers, my work is a Word document, so you can edit-and-adapt to make it work in your classroom. All of these games have been tested in class and adjusted if needed. They have a real impact on learning.
For each grammar skill there is:
a child friendly explanation of the 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.
