Grammar Island motivates kids to practice editing skills by either fixing the grammar in an incorrect sentence, or claiming that there are no errors in the sentence. It is also great because instead of being overwhelmed by many sentences at once, it allows students to focus on one sentence at a time. Players (sailors) can either work as a team or competitively. The 'captain' (either a student or a teacher) can give up to 2 hints to a player/player team. If the player(s) get the sentence right with up to 2 hints, they can move ahead one square. If they get the sentence right with no hints, they can move ahead two squares. The first sailor(s) to arrive at Grammar Island wins.
This document comes with: grammar game board, playing pieces, sentence cards, rules, and a grammar reminder sheet, with options to print separately or all at once in a MS Word document or picture (.PNG) files. I suggest to print these on letter sized cardstock. You can also download sentence flash cards with mistakes/no mistakes separately for $2 - look for these in my store. Those sentences on the flash cards include grammar mistakes that are typical for ESL/ELL learners. You could also do as I did, and gather language/writing samples of students, and type them into cards or sentence strips for kids to play this game with.
