March 31, 2011

We all know that the You’ve been Sentenced! word game is loads of fun. Kids love it. Families love it. And now, teachers love it too!

eHow recently cited the You’ve been Sentenced! word game as a great way to teach students grammar, while having fun at the same time!

A brief snippet of the article Where Can I Find Grammar Games for Students to Play? by Katylyn Joy follows. To read the article in its entirety, please visit eHow.

“Grammar is often the moan-inspiring aspect of language arts instruction. To many, it seems like nothing more than dreary rules often learned by rote and accompanying red marks on papers. To dispel the negative reaction and actually encourage mastery of English grammar, teachers can introduce learning through games. Games may be handmade, board games, online or software games or classroom-type group activities…

Other options include books of games, software or commercially prepared games designed to teach grammar. One board game is Go to Press! A Grammar Game. Others include You’ve Been Sentenced!, Speed Grammar and Grammar 500. Another way to play grammar games is through software. Some software titles for grammar are Schoolhouse Rock: Grammar Rock, Spell It Deluxe + Grammar Games by Davidson, and Grammar Games by Knowledge Adventure.”
