Description

Practice multiple skills (question words, cause & effect, compound & complex sentence formation) with the same game! Simply decide which skill you want to practice, pass out the directions cards, game board, picture cards, and playing pieces; the rest is up to the students. All files in the zip folder are in PDF format.

For more information about this game, see this blog post.

Materials needed and not included in this download:

1. Dice– one die per group of students

2. Player Pieces– one per player, popular options in my class include plastic counter circles, mini erasers, and milk jug lids.

3. For sentence challenge version: whiteboard, dry erase marker, and eraser for each student

4. CD Spinners (optional, replace roll keys)—you’ll need old CDs or DVDs, Avery CD labels, and spinner stands

Game Preparation:

1. Print and laminate (I recommend cold lamination because it is thicker and doesn’t peel, even after you cut through it.) the direction cards, game board, and picture cards. You’ll need one set of each per group of students (I tend to do groups of four, though you could go as low as two or as high as six.)

2. Cut the direction cards, roll key cards, and picture cards.

3. If using the spinner instead of the roll key, print the labels and place on CDs. Prepare and gather the spinner stands.

4. If you think your students could use a reminder of what the various words mean, you may want to print and distribute the “cheat” cards.

Directions for Question Words Picture Prompts Board Game

1. Answer the question asked by the previous player with a complete sentence. Place the picture card at the bottom of the pile.

2. Roll the number cube to determine which question word you will use.

3. Take the top card and ask a question about it using the designated question word.

4. If your question is grammatically correct, move your piece the number of spaces you rolled. If it is not correct, do not move your piece.

5. Pass the picture card to the next player so he/she can answer the question you asked.

Directions for Cause & Effect Picture Prompts Board Game

1. Roll the number cube to determine if you will state a cause or an effect. (even numbers = cause, odd numbers = effect)

2. Take the top card and state a possible cause or effect for the picture. Be sure to use a complete sentence.

3. If the other players agree your sentence is plausible and grammatically correct, move your piece the number indicated on the number cube.

4. Place the picture at the bottom of the pile.

Directions for Sentence Challenge Picture Prompts Board Game

(simple, compound, and complex sentences)

1. Either spin the spinner or roll the number cube to determine what type of sentence you will form.

2. Take the top card and flip it over.

3. Every student writes a sentence on his/her own whiteboard, keeping it secret from all others in the group.

4. When students are finished, each student reads his/her sentence to the group. If no one else in the group has the same sentence, the student rolls the number cube and moves his/her piece. If someone else in the group has the same sentence, neither student rolls that turn.

5. Place the picture at the bottom of the pile.
