Dicing with Grammar

It's simple really: English grammar can be a very dry subject, but this need not be the case. For a few years now, I have been developing a games-based approach to teaching important grammar concepts. It is amazing how the introduction of dice takes the learning into a new place - the element of chance making it seem less like work and more like play. Because I test my games extensively in the classroom, I get a feel for what works. Dump your boring worksheets and start dicing with grammar.

Put your children in pairs to play the fun spelling game ‘VictoriOUS’. It’s a two player dice game that enables children to learn these four rules for adding the suffix ‘ous’:

  1. Some root word do not change – just add ‘ous’
  2. For many root words that end in e, take off the ‘e’ and add ‘ous’
  3. If the root word ends ‘-ge’, keep the ‘e’ and add ‘ous’
  4. Change the ‘y’ to an ‘i’ and add ‘ous’
  5. How about words that can’t have the ‘ous’ suffix?

Peer assessment is built in. Everything that you need is here - just add 1-6 dice!
