Product Description
Grammar review just got FUN with I CAN Grammar Games! This grammar game focuses on Figurative Language (literal and nonliteral meaning) and Shades of Meaning for 3rd Grade. Students practice grammar skills in the form of multiple choice or short answer questions. QR codes (optional) make this game even more interactive as students get immediate feedback on their work! This game can also be used for independent practice, a small group activity, whole group review, or for progress monitoring. The possibilities are endless.

**With QR codes!

*Whole-Group Games (like task cards)
*Individual Progress Monitoring

What is an “I CAN” game?
It is literally a can that contains a variety of “test like” questions. Each question comes in multiple-choice format and short response format (you pick the format that fits your needs).

Both sets of cards (multiple choice & short answer) come with and without QR codes. It is up to you if you want to incorporate them into your classroom!

This Game Includes….
2 different sized can covers (includes directions for students)
A guide on how to assemble the game
A guide on how to use this game
1 Checklist to help monitor student progress in this skill
1 Student Answer Recording Sheet
40 Practice Questions – 2 formats for each question (multiple choice/written response)
Answer Keys
QR codes (for answers) **optional


As a Group Game:
Place this “I Can” game out as one of your centers or small group activities. In groups of 2 or more, students can play this game against one another by seeing who can collect the most cards. To collect a card, students must answer the question correctly. If they check their answer and it is incorrect, another player can attempt to answer the question correctly and keep the card for themselves. If a student pulls an “I Can” card, they can add this to their pile of cards as a bonus and pull another card to answer.

As Independent Practice:
A student will pull a question from the can and answer it. They will record their answers on the “My Answers” sheet. When they are finished, they can check their answers using the answer key. It is a good idea to offer a reward/incentive for completing the set of cards and mastering a certain percentage.

As a Progress Monitoring Tool:
When students complete this activity independently, have them keep track of their progress using the “Checklist” provided. You can then use this checklist to see if the student has mastered the focus skill. You can also use this information to help you determine if, and in what area, further instruction is needed.
