FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Hi, assuming your son’s language development is normal, try playing “This and That” with him. This game teaches the child to build short phrases with the correct gender, singular or plural. At a later stage, it helps the child learn how to compose new sentences.
Dear teacher, the game choice would depend on the level of the children in your classes, but nearly all of them meet your purpose. There are games that work with compound sentences (If… then; in order to…), and there are the grammatical games such as “Verb Builders” (verb cases) and “A Matter of Time” (tenses and pronouns). These last two games feature the root letters, which is a great way for working on roots and word families.
This is an excellent question. “If… then” and “in order to” are great for the younger one, but her older sister will enjoy them too. “Who and Who” is a favorite of children from the age of 4, but your younger one would still enjoy it based on her understanding level. “Guess Five Junior” will also suit both.
Hi, my games provide a range of linguistic skills, including syntax, grammar, vocabulary and thinking. They make use of the play to enrich the spoken language. While they can be used also for writing down the language they include, they do not involve any reading because most of them have no printed text. For example, “If… then” is a memory game that teaches the syntax of conditional sentences. When you play it with your son, you could add a stage that requires writing down the result whenever a correct conditional sentence is created out of a pair of cards. Each one of the games can be adjusted in this way to achieve the practice of the written language. Please contact me if you need additional advice.
Yes, this is exactly how the ”Verb Builders” game is structured. It starts with a memory game of case pairs, then develops into a four-of-a-kind game with four cases for each root. These four-of-a-kind games are also arranged by difficult levels, starting with the easier cases.
