Learning should be fun and the top five online grammar games for kids teach a child proper grammar and parts of speech all while the kid is having a good time. Finally - a good reason for a child to spend an hour online!
This cute little game teaches kids about nouns. A little character comes out with a basketball, and the child must choose whether the word on the ball is a noun, a proper noun, or not a noun. With each correct choice, the character tosses the ball and makes a basket and the scoreboard adds another one for the home team. Noun dunk is a cute and fun interactive online grammar game for kids. See the link to Noun dunk in the supporting links section below.
This game can be used to teach grammar and the parts of speech to children in grades 2-5. Ten fill in the blank questions are given, and the child has to select the appropriate grammar response from a multiple choice list. More points are awarded if the kid selects the right answer the first time. Look for Grammar Blast in the 2nd link in the resource section below.
Each time your child selects the right parts of speech, the gorilla at the top of the screen scores a banana. And, as the website says, a gorilla with a banana has appeal (ha ha ha). There are two levels to select from - Beginner and Advanced. The Beginner level teaches the parts of speech of nouns and verbs only. The Advanced level of this online grammar game teaches nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, interjections, prepositions, conjunctions, and pronouns.
This game tests your child's knowledge of common idioms used in the english language like "let sleeping dog's lie" or "you can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear." With each correct answer, a bit of light paint is applied to whichever character they've chosen to portray in this online grammar game. Some of the idioms might be more advanced (I missed 2 in 10 - maybe it should be called "Paint by idiots"...)
This online grammar game is for older children as the questions are much more advanced than the other games (well, except maybe Paint by Idioms which still makes me mad). Anyway, Proofreading Makes Perfect gives the child an incorrect sentence and two choices to fix the problem. This online grammar game has three separate levels: capitalization and punctuation, spelling, and usage.
If your kid is going to sit on the internet for hours anyway, why not point him or her in the direction of these fun online grammar games where they can learn and have fun at the same time?
I love this and I will definitely have to get my youngest online to try these learning sites out. Thanks!
Good suggestions for some constructive online time for kids!
I love this list! I should use it to refresh my grammar skills. I can't wait to try out the paint by idiom one! And I might even share this with my grandkids.
Nice list. I will have to remember these when my granddaughter is older. Thanks for the list of 5 to remember.
