Don’t get arrested because you’re using the wrong pronoun!
This game is used to target pronoun usage in a fun, interactive format.
This package includes:
- 2 different game boards (you can print multiples of the game board if you would like each student to have their own)
- A cue card that contains all the possible pronouns used in the activities in list format
- a set of 60 cards requiring students to determine if the correct pronoun is used in a given sentence
- a set of 60 cards that requires the student to choose between two pronouns to complete a target sentence.
- A set of 60 cards that requires the student to fill in the blank with the appropriate pronoun to create a grammatically correct sentence
- a fourth set of 18 cards that only has a pronoun written on it. The students can then generate a sentence with that pronoun. You’ll need to print several sets of these cards if you choose to use them.
- A set of 6 “thief” cards to use in the game. You may need to print multiples to these to play the game.
- And a set of 6 “badges.” These can be given out as “rewards” for students who master pronoun skills. Or they can be given to the student who wins the game so you can keep track of who has won the most games in a single session. You may need to print multiples of these cards as well.
How to play:
Students place all their tokens on the “Start” space of the game board. They then draw a card and complete the task. The task will depend on what set of cards you are using. With a total of 198 different cards comprising 4 different decks – there are a variety of skill levels and pronouns to make this game usable for a variety of kids. You can even utilize all four decks at once to make group therapy a breeze (just have the student draw from the deck appropriate for his/her skill level). If the student correctly answers, they can move their token forward one space. The first student to reach the end of the game (and the police car!) wins the game. But….. There are also special “thief cards.” If the student draws a “thief card,” they must put their token in the “jail” located on the game board. They lose their turn and have to start back at the beginning when they are “released from jail” on their next turn.
The pronouns targeted include: she, he, they, her, him, them, his, hers, theirs, me, mine, my, I, you, we, our, ours, and us.
