Games, Grammar

The Child’s Own English Book – Lessons & Word Games

Today we feature this little-known gem, which is a terrific introduction to grammar: You have an introductory story/essay on each part of speech, how it is used, and why it is important. This is followed by several games to play that will help teach young students to identify and properly use their nouns, verbs, adjectives, pronouns, interjections, etc. A unique and innovative approach to beginning grammar, this is a playful and child-friendly classic text! Highly recommended!

Games, Homeschool Helps

Teach With Games – and make your own, too!

Here’s a neat – and FREE! – way to create your own simple printable games to help younger students review or memorize what they are learning.

TeachWithGames.com has developed a online tool that lets you quickly create free printable card games with your own customized information, PLUS you can also search for games others have made studying the same information you need to memorize. Once you make a game you can save it for yourself — and as soon as it’s approved, it will also be shared with others to study the same subjects. It’s a community of games!

There are four different style game formats that can be used for different information: Pairs, Sets, Categories, and Sequences. Examples of all these can be found on the site. And you can click HERE to view a short instructional video that shows you step by step how to get started and create your first game.

Access to the tool is free when you register for a free membership on the site.
