SPaG - A Great Grammar Game for Year 4

(0)
In this, stimulating and creative game players meet – or possibly re-meet - Hetti, a smart and friendly alien living on the far-off planet of SPaG. The game is wholly about teaching, rather than testing the Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar demands for Y4 children as set out in the most recent National Curriculum for English. In the PowerPoint lesson the game covers: the grammatical difference between plural and possessive 's ' standard English verb inflections fronted adverbials and punctuation apostrophes to mark singular possession. In playing this version of the Great Grammar Game, children will also be revisiting and revising their SPaG knowledge from previous years. Like all other versions of the game, it can be played more than one, either in small groups of 5 or more or by a whole class. The National Curriculum insists that building grammatical knowledge is best achieved through a focus on grammar within the teaching of reading, writing and speaking. This is exactly how this activity is designed to work. All the money raised from the sale of this resource goes to a local charity for children called MedEquip4Kids.
