Grammar Dice Writing Activity
Teaching Creative Writing can be a difficult task for teachers. Fortunately a fellow teacher, Brandon Payne, shares this great writing activity for English learners.
This game is great for the following reasons:
- It’s a fun and easy writing game to explain in class
It is called Grammar Grammar dice and it’s a fun, simple game for teachers to use in the classroom. It’s good for all levels. Great fluency practice There are 5 dice to use.
- 20 sided die with all the consonants of the alphabet
- 6 side die (Cube) for all the vowels
- Tetrahedron for 1, 2, 3
- Cube with Transitive verbs (or any verbs you wish to practice)
- Cube with prepositions
Students roll the die
If the consonant die lands on “G”, the vowel die lands on “I” and the number die lands on “3”. The students have to do the following:
Write down words that have both “G” and “I” in them. For example: Igloo, gorilla, intrigue, gift
Then, they have to use 3 of those words in a sentence: “The gorilla gives me a gift inside the igloo”
This is a great activity because students learn new vocabulary and practice making creative sentences. The crazier the better.
The next level they can use the other dice to increase the difficulty.
Remember, to review the sentences they have created to give feedback and fix mistakes.
