The cards all have nouns, verbs and phrases. Children are given 5 random cards they have to make into a grammatically correct sentence. Purple Aliens Dab in the White House anyone? -Our prefix dominoes teach a range of prefixes, and will give you the chance to explain the role of root words without the children even realising! -Synonym Happy Families is a take on the old card game. Challenging in its vocabulary, the game asks the students to create families whose name has a similar meaning. Personally, I don’t think I’d want to be in family with Mr Fury, Mrs Anger, Master Hot-tempered or Miss Livid!
