A fun and engaging card game that focuses on building simple sentences that include a subject, verb and object.
Use this teaching resource in the classroom when teaching and learning about simple sentence construction. Ideal to use as a small group activity with teacher support.
This card game is played in a similar way to Rummy. Players take it in turns to pick up and put down cards until they can build a sentence that is grammatically correct and makes sense. The winner of the game is the first person to build three sentences or one ‘trump’ card sentence.
This teaching resource includes:
- an instruction card
