Grammar Skills and Enhanced Vocabulary

Grammar is something students dread because they are usually introduced to it in a more tedious manner, such as repetitive copy work or written exercises. However, making it fun through games and activities that promote better grammar skills can help your child view this subject in a different light. The following activities and ideas can help you encourage your child to do better in grammar and actually enjoy it.

Fun Activities That Help Improve Grammar and Vocabulary

  • Turn the picture into a story. This is a great activity for kids of all ages, even younger children can participate. Have your child pick out a few interesting pictures from books, magazine cut-outs, or travel brochures and place them on the table face down. Everyone takes a turn flipping a picture over and saying or writing a brief story that they must then share with everyone. The point is to focus on using new vocabulary and proper grammar. The stories can be as short as a few sentences or as long as the child decides.
  • Sentence puzzle. Write a few sentences out on a piece of paper and cut the sentences into sections. Then, mix them all up and ask your child to put the sentences back together. You can make this into a contest between more children or try and see who can put together the most sentences.


  • Reading games. There are lots of reading games you can try that also encourage grammar improvement and vocabulary building. Reading at home is a simple and very effective way to help your child improve in other academic areas. The more they read, the easier it will be for them to improve their grammar and vocabulary.
