Objective: While playing this game students will practice using –est and –er on the end of words by determining which sentence the word works best in.
Included: 22 game cards + 5 blank cards, 1 spinner, 1 direction card, 1 game board, 1 answer key, 1 recording sheet, and one worksheet.
To Do: Print, cut and laminate game cards, spinner, answer key and game board for durability. Copy recording sheet and have available for students to play the game (if you want the accountability, if not the game does not require the recording sheet.
Needed: brad and paperclip for spinner, two sets of same colored markers for each player (ex, player one red & player two blue), 2 players..
To Play: Spin the spinner and then pick a card. Change the word on the card to the new word with –er or –est. Look at the game board and find a sentence that the word will fit in. If you can find a sentence mark the board with your marker and then record it on the recording sheet. If there is not a sentence to be found then no marking or recording happens. Player 2 then takes a turn, playing the same was as player 1. The first person to get 4 in a row is the winner but if no 4 in a row happens, whoever has the most markers on the board. Players may check the answer key to verify their answers.
