Whole Brain Teaching's BUILDING SENTENCES, a revolutionary writing game, powerfully develops your K-8 students' understanding of nouns, verbs, adjectives, prepositions, and adverbs.
While playing, kids discover the crucial difference between independent and dependent clauses, develop the habit of composing grammatically perfect sentences ... all while productively fretting over the neatness of their compositions!
After years of classroom experiments, WBT educators discovered that the simplest way to motivate maximum effort is to turn writing into a game that any student can win. If we reward for ability, as is traditionally the case, then the most talented kids succeed, while middle and bottom kids lose. BUILDING SENTENCES transforms composition into an entertaining activity that rewards for improvement, making every student a winner.
Super Improver Writing, under development for over a decade, presents a complete course in persuasive, expository, and narrative writing.
Students advance from game to game, perfecting one composition skill at a time. Moving from topic sentences, to paragraphs, to tightly organized essays containing in-text citations, the Super Improvers Writing game builds student confidence in constructing five paragraph college style compositions … even, unbelievably, in kindergarten!
The result of over a decade of classroom testing and development, the Brainy Game will powerfully increase your K-12 students’ writing, critical thinking, and speaking skills.
Based upon a revolutionary system that turns clear thinking into a hilarious, race against the clock, the Brainy Game works marvelously for any grade, any subject, any student, Special Ed to Gifted.
