English teacher and eHow contributor recommends You’ve been Sentenced! in “ESL Games for Adjectives and Relative Clauses”

June 13, 2011

eHow writer Stacy Zeiger teaches writing as an eighth grade English teacher, holds a B.A. in English and a M.Ed. in secondary education from Ohio State. To say that Stacy knows a thing or two about words is an understatement!

That‘s why we were so thrilled to be included in her latest pieces “ESL Games for Adjectives and Relative Clauses.”

Here’s a little advice from Stacy:

“Adjectives and relative clauses are two components of English grammar. In order to learn how to correctly use adjectives and relative clauses, ESL students must constantly practice describing people, places or things using adjectives and creating sentences that use relative clauses. Games help make this practice enjoyable and keep it from becoming repetitive…”

Suggestions? Among others Stacy suggested Board Games:

“Play a board game such as “You’ve Been Sentenced!” by McNeill Designs, which requires players to correctly use adjectives and relative clauses to build sentences and earn points. Consider playing an adjectives-only version of popular board games such as “Scrabble,” “Boggle” or “Bananagrams.” Play “Apples to Apples,” a game of comparison and analogies by Mattel, where players must choose a card with an event or pop culture reference from their hand that best fits the adjective in play.”
