The Grammar Game with Shelf-Ready Stand (#G14): $99.00

An interactive game for practicing grammar patterns-- only from Mandala Classroom Resources

This innovative game allows students to practice their knowledge of the nine parts of speech while creating their own sentences in common speech patterns. Using a magnetic game board and magnetic grammar symbol tiles, students build on each others' sentences to try to use up all of the game tiles and fill the board. Teachers can adjust the challenge by beginning with the first grammar symbols learned and then adding more. Older students can be challenged by restricting the use of more common adjectives, nouns, and adverbs, using a Thesaurus.

Included in the set are:grstandall

The Advanced Grammar Game with Stand (#G18): $114.00

The upper elementary version of The Grammar Game, applying second level grammar knowledge

In this advanced version of the game, students practice their knowledge of the kinds of the parts of speech (interrogative adjectives, collective nouns, numeral pronouns, etc.) while creating their sentences on the game board. Students still build on each others' sentences, but they are also trying to use each of the kinds of parts of speech identified on their Checklist, which we provide in quantity. The Checklist applies a point system to entice the students to stretch their word usage to include parts of speech they may not normally consider (subordinating conjunction, intensive pronoun, for example). To refresh their memories, they can refer to a set of "Refresher" cards that give definitions and samples in a quick-reference format. The Advanced Grammar Game also includes additional tiles (more adjectives, pronouns and conjunctions) than the regular set.

Included in the set are:
