Dice Game

[Note: This game can be played with any part of speech.] 

Set-Up

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.
  • In 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.
