Dice & Cards
The GrammarPunk™ Dice
The Grammar Punk™ Dice do more than make teaching and learning grammar fun. The dice break the complexities of grammar and punctuation into bite-size elements. Growing with the use of the dice, students will tackle one concept at a time until the rules and concepts are part of their natural writing repertoire.
The Grammar Punk™ Dice are an intrinsic part of each lesson, exercise, challenge, and activity in the Grammar Punk™ K-3 Elementary, 4-9 Intermediate, & 9-12 Secondary Programs.
- Using the Grammar Punk™ Dice takes grammar from boring and complicated to fun and memorable
- The Grammar Punk™ Dice introduce the grammar and punctuation concepts one at a time
- The Grammar Punk™ Dice allow students to “get” the concepts at their own pace
- In combination with the GP K-3, 4-9, and 9-12 Programs the concepts are introduced, reinforced, and reiterated again and again so students remember what they learn
- The Grammar Punk™ Dice spark creativity and strengthen vocabulary
- The Grammar Punk™ Dice make the learning feel more like a game
