Types of Sentences Review Game Powerpoint – This is what you will purchase here on TPT
Students will earn points by correctly identifying sentences (presented in a Powerpoint) as simple, compound, complex, or compound complex.
Students will draw a card and earn the points presented on the card if they correctly identify the type of sentence.
• Numbered cards = that number of points
• Ace =fourteen points
• King= thirteen points
• Queen = twelve points
• Jack = eleven points
• Jokers = Double or nothing
Note: If a player draws a joker, he/she must draw the next card on the deck. The sentence is now worth double the amount on the second card. If the student correctly identifies the sentence type, he/she earns the double point value. If he/she misidentifies the type of sentence, he/she loses all of his/her points so far in the game and must start over at zero.
This game can be played in small groups or as a whole class. Check out the free preview to view the full directions. You can steal our directions and make up your own sentences, or simply buy this Powerpoint for only $5 and have all of the work done for you!
In this Powerpoint, there are three slides per round. The first slide will give a sentence. The second slide highlights the clauses (independent and dependent) in the sentence but does not yet give the answer. This way, you can use this slide to give hints if needed or to make sure students are paying attention before you give the answer. This is what makes this game an incredible teaching tool! The third slide in the set will give the answer. At this point, students give themselves their points if they answered correctly. Then, the next round begins. There are 110 slides in this Powerpoint, enough for several class periods of play! All types of sentences are used. Also, full directions and student answer sheets are provided. You can save it and use it for years to come!
