Basic English grammar and sentence writing doesn’t have to be so-o-o hard! The Sentence Zone® game, designed by a learning disabilities specialist and educational therapist, teaches and reinforces learning English grammar and sentence structure at the same time. Learn the parts of speech while playing and having fun.
My students struggled not only with writing a basic sentence, but also with their English grammar assignments. The assignments made their whole body tense up. They had no idea what a direct object or a predicate nominative was, and when I showed them with the game…learning English grammar became so easy for them. The other thing that happened was I could just say…”Remember the sentences you got the big points for when we played Sentence Zone?” They would always say “Yes!” ” Well, in each paragraph I want you to have a least one ‘big point’ sentence.” My kids could relate to that and they were able to improve their writing by doing that. It was great…not only did my students improve their basic English grammar, they also improved their overall writing ability too.
What Families Say About Learning English Grammar with The Sentence Zone® Game:
My five youngest played this together. Everyone could create their sentence at the same time. This created a bit more competition, as they saw their sibling’s sentence grow longer, they added more to their own. My twelve year old won the round with the sentence,”The sinister dragon ran swiftly to retrieve a map.” My favorite was from my eight year old. Here is her silly sentence, “The toe ate a pizza and a dinosaur.” When told by her siblings that toes cannot eat, she replied that it was a sentence from a Science Fiction story and in her world, toes could eat. I love it!
There are so many ways you be creative with this grammar game and learn while having fun. It’s a simple game but I’m impressed with how well it worked with my family.
I really like this product. I will use it for my family and it will make a wonderful addition to our grammar program. whether you are a homeschooler or not, you will enjoy adding this grammar game to your family activities and help your children discover the parts of speech and learn English grammar in a fun manner.
I think we’ll be playing more games with The Sentence Zone, as my daughter is great at picking words but hasn’t much of a clue about parts of speech. After her little sister and I had played only a few rounds, Little Sister was advising on what piles to search through for words. “Dragon, that’s a noun, look in the dark blue pile. Call is a verb…”
Youngest, too, is enjoying the game, along with the novelty of knowing more than her older sister about something!
You can use The Sentence Zone with very young children, using the most basic building blocks of basic English grammar (articles, nouns, verbs) to come up with the simplest of sentences and adding more categories (adjectives, adverbs) as they grow more confident. It has lots and lots of words for building. It is easily adaptable for my beginning reader and my older kids.
Yeah, I can see many different ways this game could be used. I love the game itself and plan to use it with my kids for quite awhile.
What Teachers Say About The Sentence Zone® Grammar Game:
ESL and English Grammar
Susan, ESL Teacher 1st/2nd grade …
I wasn’t sure if this game would work with my students since they don’t read well yet. I didn’t think my students would be able to play it. It would be way too difficult. But, Bonnie Terry asked me to try it out so I did. To my amazement, the students not only played it and played it well, they wouldn’t leave until I promised them they could play it again the next day! Thanks Bonnie for pushing me to try your game. It’s really making a difference with my students! Even though my students are in 1st & 2nd grade, they are even learning some English grammar too. Unbelievable!

Research Supports Grammar Game
A few years after developing The Sentence Zone®, I attended a workshop on Sentence Writing Strategies based on the research from the University of Kansas (SIM Strategies). To my surprise, the sentence writing strategy they used was the same one I had been using with The Sentence Zone®, teaching the 6 basic sentence types. This was so cool to me because now there was years of research backing up my work, my game.
The SIM Strategy workshop I attended spent a lot of time showing us how to teach the sentence writing strategy to high school students. Up to this time The Sentence Zone® used the 500 most frequently used words. I decided if my high school students were to become engaged in the game they would need more difficult vocabulary words so they could make sentences they would be interested in. So, I added 200 more word including advanced vocabulary cards to the basic vocabulary cards so they could make more sophisticated sentences.
