Grammar Games

The game was inspired by the game, TABOO! where you are to give the other player clues to a word without saying the word, and the other player gets a point if they correctly guess what the word is.

The game was a BIG hit, and since we’ve just finished a unit in our grammar curriculum going over several concepts such as nouns, verbs, adjectives, subject, predicate, punctuation marks, and more– I decided to set up a new TABOO! inspired game involving…. you guessed it– grammar concepts!
