Resources for teaching SPaG

 
   
New for 2018, Strategies for understanding new words includes a handy checklist to help students use their grammatical knowledge to work out the meaning of unfamiliar words. It’s perfect for any unseen text!

If GCSE enthusiasm is waning, our Spelling and punctuation game will refresh exam-scrambled minds. Adapt the writing task for your exam board to plan quick-fire stories, speeches or articles or ramp up the figurative language to include antithesis, analepsis or verisimilitude. Supercharge your students’ analytical vocabulary further with Language effects in an unseen fiction text.

Build a sentence fortune teller helps students create silly or sensible sentences. It’s a fun way to get stories started and revise some core grammatical terms at the same time. For more sentence variety, also try Varying sentence structures.
