A teaching resource to help students consolidate the students’ knowledge of grammar and brainstorm vocabulary for writing.
This teaching resource, Partner Sentence Challenge is a great way to get students to apply their knowledge of grammar to the people they know. This can be a resource task that can be used with peers in the classroom, or an activity that can be done with members of the family at home. It is a great conversation piece between students and their parents who may have forgotten their grammar conventions since they were at school. Recommended to be complimented with the Grammar Sentence Challenge worksheet, this quick activity is a great way to get students planning their vocabulary for writing.
Student get a chance to implement the following grammar conventions
- Proper nouns
- Colour Adjectives
This activity could be a regular routine after your class has mastered the concept of each grammar convention or as a good ice breaker for a new classroom. This can also be used as a homework piece or at a parent celebration evening, where students and parents can share with each other specific vocabulary about each other.
In the classroom, you can put students into pairs to interview each other, or choose a friend to focus on and fill out independently. Once filled in, students can use the Grammar Sentence Challenge worksheet, or their own writing books to write out a quick, but well written, paragraph using all the grammar vocabulary they have brainstormed. It is also recommended that students follow the Grammar Sentence Challenge worksheet instructions and label their grammar words in their designated colours. After, it is always fun to get students to have a peer share on what they have written about each other.
