Description

Language is more than words. But too often, we teach grammar as a set of boring rules, best practiced by filling out worksheets. 60 Kinesthetic Grammar Activities by Alice Savage and Colin Ward bursts this myth with a collection of activities that get students out of their seats and learning in a dynamic and active classroom. The benefits of kinetic language learning activities are many:

  • teach gesture and nonverbal communication
  • activate our embodied mind
  • make grammar memorable
  • change the dynamics of the classroom
  • build community
  • and raise students’ moods.

This book contains everything you need to practice 60 common grammar points in a dynamic and active way! All the activities inside are all low-prep or no-prep, easy to adapt to your classroom, and flexible enough to work with a variety of target language features.
