Grammar & Syntax
Our English Grammar Toys & Games Help Kids Learn to Articulate Sentences
At Fun Stuff, we supply a wide range of board games, flash cards, Thumballs and other toys for helping kids learn grammar. This is what helps us communicate more precisely (both written and verbally).
Poor grammar leads to miscommunication or misinterpretation, and the message behind whatever was said or written is lost. By learning correct grammar, we’re able to communicate with people clearer and express ourselves better. It also enables us to broaden our vocabulary.
Especially in regards to writing; resources like toys and games that focus on teaching the rules of English grammar help to establish these foundations early in childhood, so that children are well-equipped for writing school essays, job applications and other documentation when they’re older.
How do toys and games help kids learn grammar?
Games that encourage children to frequently repeat a correct grammatical formation will train them out of incorrect phrases (like “I want to go home” instead of “me want home”).
While there are plenty of games in our collection that a child can play on their own, multi-player games are great for encouraging verbal interactions that develop good grammar skills through practice.
It goes without saying that story books are another great resource for teaching children how to articulate written sentences properly, while verbal storytelling is useful for reinforcing the rules of syntax and word structures like ownership, plurals, verb tenses and so on.
How do I know if my child would benefit from English grammar toys and games?
If you agree with one or several of the following statements, your child might benefit from practicing their English grammar through toys, games and other fun activities.
• Struggles to get their message across
• Is frequently misunderstood
• Is often asked to repeat what they just said
• Sounds immature for their age
• Doesn’t always understand the information that’s being presented to them (in either spoken or written form)
• Struggles to answer questions clearly
• Struggles to tell a story in the correct sequence
• Often confuses tenses, such as speaking in the present tense about something that happened yesterday
There are numerous benefits to giving your child access to grammar toys and games. Not only does it enable your child to follow instructions easier, but it also gives them the tools to be more assertive in classroom activities, more socially active, and generally more interested in reading and writing (which provides its own benefits!).
