Teaching grammar through drama

    Hi,

    I was just wondering if anyone knew of any websites that are free and have games and activities to support teaching grammar. What sites do other people use for teaching Literacy? I find Numeracy much easier and use lots of great resources online but find Literacy websites harder to come across.

    Thanks in advance for your comments.

    Sorry - foolishly tried to post a weblink. The Literacy Shed is great.

    All sounds too VAK for my liking, and something of an avoidance strategy.

    Just teach the grammar. The content is enough for them to focus on without giving them the chance to **** about and avoid doing some work.

    I'm just wondering how you could act out a subordinating conjunction:confused:

    Ha! That's actually one I do move about for (well, when talking about a main clause and a subordinate clause).

    List one arm up higher to show the main clause, one lower acting like he needs the main clause to make sense.

    I agree with others though - there is plenty of grammar to be taught. I find the children generally don't mind learning it either.
