Use this fun and engaging Pirate game to help students get ready for STAAR Writing! Students must look at a sentence and determine the appropriate correction to make. The answers are written on the bottom of the cards. When it is one player's turn, his or her opponent simply covers the answer as they hold the card for the person to determine the sentence error. If they get it right, they get to draw a ship card...the first to reach the treasure wins!
This game includes over 50 questions reviewing commas, homophones, possessives, subject-verb agreement, and more!
This game is perfect as a work station and keeps my students motivated to think carefully about grammar! We created a special rule - if a player doesn't explain why his or her answer is correct, they are sent right back to start.
