Grammar review can be meaningful and engaging with differentiated, student-centered approaches that reinforce the teacher's direct instruction. If you need additional methods for helping students with repetition or review of grammar concepts, try these grammar games dice boards.

To play, each pair or group of students needs 4 dice. I recommend giving each student a copy of the game board. Those are the only supplies they will need to play.

The grammar games dice board is a concept I came up with for my own classroom. After direct instruction, guided practice, and worksheets, I was looking for a way to make grammar more interactive and engaging. You can use these as a review lesson, as a station activity, as an on-the-spot formative assessment, and more.

The grammar games dice boards ask students to think outside the box. Many of the questions are open ended. For example, Name three adjectives.

Included in this bundle are the following pairs of game boards:

1. The Original Grammar Games

The original grammar games feature a mixed bag of common grammar concepts that Secondary ELA students need to know for the Common Core Standards and for test prep. Two game boards are included.

Example questions include -

Name 3 conjunctive adverbs.

Give an example of a sentence that has a hard-to-find subject. Explain how to find it.

2. Revenge of the Grammar Games

Revenge of the grammar games focuses specifically on the 8 parts of speech. Two game boards are included.

Example questions include -

Name 4 questions that adverbs answer.

Explain the three categories of verbs, and give examples.

3. Return of the Grammar Games

Return of the grammar games features questions about the four types of sentences - simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex - as well as questions about common punctuation marks. An answer key is included for both of these boards because the questions are more specific, and some only have one correct answer.

Example questions include -

Laura and Frank bought a new, house.



This editable template will allow you to create questions specifically for your students. The template is editable by adding text boxes in Microsoft PowerPoint.

Making grammar interesting and effective is one of my passions. I hope your students laugh and learn as they review important grammar concepts with these game boards.
