#4 Dice Game
[Note: This game can be played with any part of speech.]
Prepare a list of sentence strips with long sentences that contain many prepositions. This could simply be a worksheet with sentences that have been cut apart.
Playing the Game
Divide the class into small learning groups of approximately four students each.
Provide each group with a set of sentence strips, an answer key, and a dice.
The players roll the dice to determine which player goes first.
On a turn, players draw one sentence strip. The player reads the sentence to the group. The player must then identify all the prepositions correctly.
Next the student awards or subtracts points from a tally sheet by first rolling the dice. The player is awarded the number on the dice times the number of prepositions in the sentence IF s/he answered correctly. If the player provided any incorrect answers, the number on the dice times the number of prepositions in the sentence are subtracted from the tally.
The winner is the student who has the most points when the time is called for the game to end.
