2 It s important to get your students up and moving from time to time. Not just to wake them up, or to break up the routine, but because physical activity will help them learn better. Each of the following activities are designed to get students out of their seats as they practice their grammar skills. By activating all learning styles-visual, auditory and kinesthetic there is a much better chance they will remember the concept you are trying to reinforce. You may have to move some desks around, and you may have more noise than usual, but in the end, you may have to correct fewer grammar errors. Wouldn t that be awesome? These games can be done at anytime at the beginning of class to get their blood flowing and brains working; in the middle to wake them up; or, at the end as a fun wrap-up activity. While learning itself is the best reward, you can crank up the competitive nature of these games by providing an external reward. Candy always works, or you could create a running tally of points for individuals or groups. After a certain period of time, the winner could get a treat, a night off homework, the chance to leave class early, or just the title of champ whatever works best for you.

3 Pronoun-antecedent agreement: A pronoun is a word that replaces a noun. An antecedent is the word that the pronoun replaces. Pronouns & antecedents must agree in both number and person. Singular he, she, it him, her, it his, her, hers, its himself, herself, itself I me Plural they them their, theirs themselves we, our us Number: A singular antecedent requires a singular pronoun, and a plural antecedent needs a plural one. Incorrect: One needs to practice their writing skills if they want to improve. Correct: The teacher was pleased when she saw that her students had done their homework. Person: If you begin writing in the first person (I), don t switch to the second person (you) or third person (he, she, they, it, etc.). Similarly, if you are using the second person, don't switch to first or third. Incorrect: When students write essays,. you need to edit carefully When we write essays, you need to edit carefully Correct :When students write essays, they need to edit carefully.

4 Pronoun-antecedent agreement: Singular Indefinite Pronouns each, either, neither anybody, anyone, anything everybody, everyone, everything nobody, no one, nothing somebody, someone, something A singular indefinite pronoun is always singular, and often causes confusion. Many students will write: Each of the students need to pass in their essays today. However, this one is correct: Each of the students needs to pass in his/her essay today. Everybody should get his homework done on time. Somebody left her purse in the locker room. *If you dislike the awkwardness of his/her, just make the noun plural: All students need to pass in their essays.

5 Pronoun-antecedent agreement: Collective Nouns audience, board, cabinet, class committee, company, corporation, council department, faculty, family, firm, group jury, majority, minority, navy public, school, senate, team, troupe Collective nouns are names of groups/things that are comprised of people. Depending on the context, collective nouns can be singular or plural. If the group is acting as a unit, the collective noun is singular. Ex: The class took its first test on grammar. If the members are acting individually, treat the noun as a plural one: After the bell, the class goes their separate ways.

6 Game One: Cut up the cards that contain the pronouns, as well as the one with the incorrect sentences. You will need one sheet of paper for every student, giving half of them a word, and half of them a sentence. Pass the sheets out face down so no one can see what the other has. Once everyone has a sheet, tell the students to find a match. Once they have, they must show it to you; if they are correct, they sit down. Time the exercise so they have to move quickly.. If you have an even number, like students get word cards; 10 get sentence cards. If you have an odd number like students get word cards and 12 get sentences When you have one more sentence than words, it s like musical chairs there will be one student who doesn t get a match. This will make the game even more interesting!. *Be sure to take the time to match the words with the sentences before you hand them to the students, to ensure you have a match for everyone. And, just in case, leave a stack of pronouns on a table where they can switch them out if they need to. However, they can only do this once they have exhausted their search among their classmates. Also, occasionally, they may need to change the verb (to singular or plural) to make the sentence work. They can tell you this when they show you their matches. Bonus: once they find the correct pronoun, for the sentence they should re-write the sentence in another way. For ex: When a teen gets his licence, he could be re-written as When teens get their licences, they

18 A student often puts the wrong pronoun in their sentence. This can cause a teacher to lose their cool. Any student who doesn t know how to fix their grammar issues may end up with a grumpy teacher. Girls and boys who learn to use his/her pronouns properly can make his/her teacher smile. If any one of you wants to improve their grammar, you should play grammar games every day. Before a student plays grammar games, though, they need to do some warm up exercises.

20 Each of these exercises has errors in them. Polished writing requires one to be careful with their editing. If you don t carefully edit your assignments one will get poor results. If a hard working young man asks for help, the teacher will be pleased to assist them. The coach made a plan for each girl, showing them what to do to improve their performance. Each of the plans had smiley face stickers on them.

22 Everybody should take a break from your work every now and then When teachers make the class fun, a student is more likely to be involved in their learning. Taking the time to stretch before your run will help most runners stay healthy. Athletes today seem to think they need energy drinks so you re able to perform at your best. When a teen gets their licence they should be old enough to be responsible for their actions. If you re caught texting and driving, one can get a big fine or lose one s licence.

24 Every player on the team is trying their best to impress his coach. The fans are excited that all of the players are giving it his all to win this season. The team is sure to finish their season in first place. The winners of the contest need to pick up your prize before the end of the week. Everyone of you needs to finish their assignment. Students are getting sick of storm days because we want to go to school every day.

26 Teachers want our students to work on their grammar so we can improve our marks. All of the girls are taking her sneakers to class, because you are going for a run afterward. Every plant in the room is outgrowing their pot. It is important that parents teach your kids how to make healthy food choices. If you spend your life wishing you could be more adventurous, a person is wishing their life away. Not doing your homework will cause most students to do poorly in a course.

28 She always helps her students so s/he can do their best. Every apple in the bag had a bruise on them. The old proverb advises people that you should stop and smell the roses. Even if students don t want to do a role play, s/he can learn by watching. If we want to improve our speaking skills you need to practice presenting to the class. Given the opportunity most students will try to improve our marks.

Given the opportunity most students will try to improve their marks.

30 Game Two Needed: Flip chart paper and markers One pronoun per student. You will need to ensure that you have matches, so if you have twenty students, you will need ten matches. For example, if a student had Each, another student will need his, her or his or her. It always helps to have a stack of extras on a table that students can look through if their matches don t work. Procedure: Students will need to find another student who has a pronoun that will allow them to write a grammatically correct sentence. Once they find their match, they will write a sentence on a piece of flip chart paper that you have put on the wall or on a table. The first team there will write its sentence on the paper, and other teams will have to wait their turn. Depending on the size of your class, you may want to use multiple sheets. You could assign points to each team, based on how quickly they were able to complete the task the first team gets ten points, the second team gets nine, etc. You can keep track of the points each time you play and offer a reward to the top finishing teams.

31 Game Three For the next game, you will need to put your students in groups of four or five. Each group will need: Two pieces of chart paper. A set of correct and a set of incorrect sentences. Masking tape or sticky tack. 1. Write correct on one piece of chart paper, and incorrect on the other. Tape each one on a wall near every group. 2. Cut up the sentences for each group and mix them up, so correct and incorrect sentences are randomly dispersed (you will need a copy of every sentence for each group). 3. Give each group a ball of sticky tack or enough masking tape to adhere each sentence to the chart paper. 4. Tell them they can t touch the sentences until you say go if you re really organized, you could put them in an envelop for them. 5. Once you say go, the students will work together to make piles of correct and incorrect sentences. Once they have done so, they will tape each sentence to the appropriate chart paper. 6. The first group to finish and be correct wins! If you are keeping track of points over a period of time, award the first place team with ten points, the second place team with nine, etc.

34 CORRECT Everyone knows that he must bring his cleats to practice. Each student understands s/he needs to pass the essay in tomorrow. Everyone in the class passed in his/her assignment. The committee took every opportunity to spread its message. When someone is texting, his attention is not on the road. Because this book is better than other books I ve read, it is holding my attention. All girls must complete their applications by Monday. If you are going to the movie you need to bring your ticket.

35 INCORRECT The teacher told his students that you must work hard to pass the course. The team has changed their practices to Sunday instead of Saturday. Any student who knows the answer should raise their hand. If one wants to improve, he needs to practice. Someone has left their purse on the floor. Everyone should see their dentist every six months for a cleaning. Each of the girls told their mother that they were trying their best. If anyone needs a ride to the game, they should let me know.

36 CORRECT Before we go to the game, she needs to give us our tickets. All of the children were having trouble getting their laces tied. Both of the dogs were chasing their tails. Neither of the boys had his coat on. The computer screen and the keyboard are showing their age. If Charlie and Curtis want to go, they need to get permission from their parents. Neither Jesse nor Drew has his homework finished. The weather man suggested that people should take their umbrellas today.

37 INCORRECT Any student can improve their mark if they work hard. If a person runs a stop sign, they run the risk of injury or at the very least, a ticket. Every new driver knows how nervewracking it is when they try to parallel park. When going on vacation one should be sure to pack sunscreen in their suitcase. The package of cookies looked like they had been opened before we bought them. Neither Joe nor Sam were ready to present their project. The set of books is just sitting there, still in their box. Before leaving the house, one should always be sure to lock his/her door.

38 Name: Cross out the incorrect words and write the correct one above. 1. Each student in class participated in the Grammar Games, and they had fun. 2. The teacher made all students get out of his/her seats to learn grammar. 3. The class got out of its seats and began to hunt for matches. 4. The game we liked the most was the group one, because you got to work with other people. 5. We do not feel as much pressure when you have others to help. 6. Our teacher gave each of the students one sheet of paper and they had to find a match. 7. The students were running around looking for his/her matches. 8. The teacher told us that you have to make your pronoun agree with your antecedent. 9. All of us were happy not to copy down notes in his scribbler. 10. In the end, we had to do this exercise to see if it improved your grammar.
