This board game was devised to use with small groups, or in one-to-one tutoring sessions, to reinforce recognition and use of different sentence structures (simple, compound and complex) but also includes vocabulary cards which encourage understanding, use and spelling of useful words, some of which are often misspelt.
There are three boards which all differ but the cards can be used with all of them. The idea of the game is to be the first to reach the "finish" but the player is only able to move to the square indicated by the dice if the instruction on that square is completed correctly. This could be the student identifying a sentence type on a card, or producing a sentence of their own using any of a variety of conjunctions, also expecting the correct use of punctuation.
As well as alternate game boards, sets of cards are included: there are sentence cards, two types of conjunction cards and word cards.
Instructions are included but do not have to be followed rigidly and the game could easily be adapted to your own needs.
I have used this game with year 7 and 8 but it could also be used with year 6 and even year 9 students.
