Stand Up. Sit Down. Pass It Around.
is a brand-new series of games that offer teachers a low-prep, no-grading alternative to worksheet reviews. The idea is three-fold. First, developing metacognitive thinking skills about English language grammar rules leads to greater success in applying those rules in future writing activities. Next, not every language-based lesson requires a pencil. Essential reinforcement occurs during oral language activities - while also helping students develop an "ear" for correct grammar usage. And finally, just as important as content learning - kids need multiple opportunities throughout the school day to get up and move around.
Our full-length Stand-Sit-Pass games provide you with:
• Two (2) Sets of 24 Word Cards
• Two (s) Sets of Question Prompts
• Answer Key
• Grammar Rule Review Sheet
• Blank Word Cards (to add more words to the game)

Stand-Sit-Pass: Comparative Adjectives
Review how to form Comparative Adjectives with your students. Our list of words give students a chance to think about whether they should add an -ER or use "most" before the adjective, when comparing 2 nouns. Should they double the final consonant first? Do they need to worry about the final "Y"? Or, is the adjective an irregular?
While students practice their grammar skills and develop an ear for correct language usage, you'll also be reviewing synonyms and antonyms during the Pass It round of the game.
Stand-Sit-Pass is a review game. This packet does not include lesson plans for initially teaching the targeted grammar concept. The game does, however, include a Grammar Review Sheet in case you need to re-teach certain rules.
