Suffizz

The goal of the game is to help students understand some of the most common suffixes and be able to identify the grammatic type of word (noun, verb, adverb, adjective, pronouns). The core idea is to get children excited about root word modification. It allows students to explore when to add “-s,” “-es,” or “-ies” to the end of a noun. They can also practice with some irregular plural nouns. In addition, students are asked to turn a list of adjectives into comparative and superlative adjectives (“-er”, “-est”, “the more”, “the most”). Via a series of questions, students can strengthen knowledge of nouns, adjectives and pronouns as well as their functions in particular sentences. The teacher can choose which category of questions the student will play.

A child could make use of “lifelines” to get help with difficult questions via the elimination of one question thus having 50/50 chances to find the correct answer or via the appearance of related grammar rules. When the correct answer is given, a new question appears, and the child moves up to the ladder of the main game board. The number of questions can be chosen by the teacher/therapist.

The game is over when all questions are answered and/or the child loses due to lack of lives. The teacher can set the timer for each question. Also, s/he can decide whether the “lives” option will be activated.

This game gives the opportunity to the student to practice hand movement (with grab & move or time-delay) from the top to bottom thus strengthening concentration and high-low hand movement efficiency.

Are you ready to answer all questions one after the other and win the trophy?
