|Grammar Gumballs is a sweet game for teaching and reinforcing basic grammar skills in young children. It targets nine of the early morphemes and grammatical structures identified by Roger Brown (1973). Children with language and learning difficulties often leave these structures out of their speech. Grammar Gumballs includes five levels of difficulty for each illustration. You begin with a simple listening/imitation task and gradually progress to spontaneous production.|
Grammar Gumballs includes 180 illustrated cards (20 for each area) and an activity booklet to help you teach the nine grammatical forms. The activity book includes a CD-ROM for printing all activity pages.

Then, read the questions that match the card from the lessons and activities book. As the students answer the questions, they spin the spinner and take that number of gumballs from the machine. At the end of the game, the student with the most gumball tokens is the winner!
