Silly Sentences

I made a game called Silly Sentences for ds. First, I made a chart of Who/What, Where, and When subjects. Then to determine the sentence he rolled a die, first, to find out Who/What was in his sentence. Ex. If he rolled a three, he would’ve gotten “A polar bear”, and then wrote it down. On his next roll, for Did What, he might have gotten a five, which would be “chased a mouse”. He continued this way until his sentence was complete. He loved the strange sentences that resulted, and kept wanting to roll the die to make more. After he wrote a few different ones, I had him complete a short story using one of the sentences. He had a wonderfully imaginative story in the end. This was a great little game that we’ll play again.

    Kind of like forced Improve Comedy…only here mom gets to pick the parts of the sentences. Sounds like you are making education fun for them.
