Your Goal: Help the alien find the way back to his spaceship by correctly writing the singular/plural possessive form of different nouns!
Rules for the game are as follows:
1.Players shuffle the cards and place them facedown on the table. Each card contains a set of words such as, “A toy that belongs to Susan, Books that belong to the students, a movie that belongs to Jack, etc.”
2. Players place their game pieces on the start space. (You can use unifix cubes, small erasers, or whatever you like for the game pieces!)
3. Player 1 selects a card from the deck and reads the words on the card. Player 1 must write the singular or plural possessive form of the noun as described on the card. For example, if Player 1 selects a card that reads, “a movie that belongs to Jack,” he/she will write, “Jack’s movie” on his/her recording sheet. Students must write the card number in the space beside their answer on the recording sheet.
4. If Player 1 writes the singular or plural possessive form of the noun correctly, he/she may roll the dice (OR USE THE SPINNER) and move that number of spaces on the board.
5. If Player 1 is INCORRECT, he/she may not roll the dice (OR SPIN THE SPINNER) and it becomes Player 2’s turn.
6. Play continues in this fashion with Player 2
7.The first player to reach “finish” is the winner!
1. Game Board
2. Two Spinners (One containing numbers 1-4, and a blank one).
The blank spinner is to help you change the number of spaces
students move in the game. This will allow you to modify the
length of the game (making it longer or shorter) in order to
meet your own instructional needs)
3. 30 Game Cards
4. Four Recording Sheets (Students May Need Two Sheets
5. Answer Key
Materials You Will Need to Gather Before Play Begins:
1. Game pieces for students
(I usually have my students choose little erasers purchased
from the Dollar Tree or unifix cubes work well too!)
2. Paper clip and a pencil for the spinner - if you choose to use
OR dice if you choose to have your students use dice :o)
