PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

How do you remember what a clause (Claus) contains? Ask your child or class what we leave out for Santa Claus to eat on Christmas Eve. Unveil the poster and let them observe it for a moment. It's so much fun to watch their faces as they realize that the chocolate chips in the cookies spell "subject" and the glass of milk says "verb". Now reinforce by saying that a clause needs a subject (cookies) and a verb (milk) just like Santa Claus needs cookies and milk! Refer to this analogy when discussing independent clauses, dependent clauses, phrases, and sentence structures. Game time: Take 20 cards and write a noun on each, repeat for 20 verb cards, shuffle, and divide into 2 stacks. Have kids form 2 lines. Place a stack in front of each line. The first person in each line grabs the top card in their stack and runs to get a cookie (if it's a noun) and put it on their team's plate. If they draw a card with a verb, they "pour" a ping pong ball or packing peanuts in a plastic glass. Once all of the cards are played teams pair nouns (subjects) and verbs to see who has the most clauses. Remind them that you need cookies AND milk for a clause! Have fun!
