9781906101121: Grammaticus: A Card Game

Initially designed for A Level students, teachers on courses at the EMC have shown enthusiasm for the idea of using them from Year 8 upwards. They are ideal for introducing the eight word classes to students in a fun and friendly way and to see and feel how word classes create clauses and sentences.

Review:

I think it is great; I recommended it to a colleague who also bought a set and two other colleagues both borrowed our sets. Student remark 'I never knew that!' Collette I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Grammaticus: we bought two sets of the game, and they've proved invaluable in teaching the finer points of syntax/word classification to our AS language students. I've also had great fun with them with a Year 10 Study Plus group. Couldn't recommend them more! Stewart We have used this game with AS English Language students - they thoroughly enjoyed it and it consolidated their understanding of word classes. 'Speedy Sentences' became highly competitive and 'Rummy Grammaticus' proved a particular favourite. Jo Canning I used the cards to practise basic word class recognition exercises, which led to really useful discussions about how words can have more than one word class depending on their function. I've also played variants on 'grammar rummy' which were lots of fun, unnervingly competitive and again useful in leading students to make discoveries about how clauses can be structured. Having trialled them with this year's AS students, they are now firmly embedded in my Scheme of Work for next year. Phil Parker,Thomas Aquinas College This is a fun game. It's, like, insanely fun! Overheard unsolicited enthusiasm from an A level student at Alton College
