“Reading and spelling games kids will love” by The Homeschool Club recently ranked the You’ve been Sentenced! word game one of the best ways to improve language arts skills

March 15, 2011

Who knows how to reach children better than a teacher or a mom? At The Homeschooling Club, sage advice is dispensed by someone who is both! In a recent article at The Homeschooling Club, Janiece says:

“Playing word related games provides children an enjoyable way of practicing their reading, spelling, and grammar skills! Children tend to pay better attention and actually learn more when they are doing something they enjoy, so why not try to make learning an engaging and pleasurable experience?!

Favorites are divided the page into three categories including Games for Beginning Readers, Games for Intermediate Readers, and Additional Resources.

Of You’ve been Sentenced! Janiece says, “This game really tests one’s ability to make sentences! How creative can you be? Can you find a way to use one or two 20 point words in your sentence, or to create the longest sentence for that round? The sentences are often hilarious, but they count as long as they are complete sentences!”

    I played this game with a group of low-achieving teenage boys, and they loved it. Plus, I think it was quite successful in teaching the structure of a sentence. I highly recommend it.

      Thanks so much! We love hearing responses from teachers using the game successfully in the classroom. There’s nothing like laughing while learning for retention value! Have you tried the Sports Highlights Add-on Deck or Sci-Fi Fantasy? Nothing like throwing Derek Jeter or Harry Potter into the mix for a little added enthusiasm!
