Build a Sentence Card Game

PDF | 5 pages|Grades: 1 - 2

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
  • a set of playing cards
  • an answer card.
