Commas can be very useful sometimes.They can change a meaning of a sentence. For example:

  1. “Go, get him doctors.”
  2. “Go get him, doctors. “
  3. “After we left grandma, Mummy and I walked around in the park.”
  4. “After we left, Grandma, mummy and I went walking around in the park.”

 Talking marks/Quotation marks

 Talking marks/Quotation marks are used when a person is talking, For example:

  • “Hello, how are you?
  • “What do you want to play?”
  • “Hi, are you new here?”
  • “What is 6+4,?”asked Peter

Full Stops

Full stops are used when a sentence is finished.

Example:

  • Sally is very tired today.
  • Robbie has a broken leg.
  • I have a sore throat.
  • Sometimes I forget my full stops.

Question Marks

Question marks are used when someone is asking a question. See examples below.

There can also be rhetorical questions, which are questions that don’t get answered.

  • What are you doing today Mike?
  • Hey, how are you?
  • Can you say that again?
  • What are your favourite books?

Exclamation Marks

For example:

  • Wow!
  • I haven’t seen you here in absolutely ages!
  • I wasn’t expecting that!
  • I going on a holiday!

Instructions 🙂

  • You all roll the dice and the person with the lowest number goes first and so on
  • At least 2 players but the max is 4 people
  • Roll the dice and move how many spaces you get on the dice
  • The dealer gets the card that you land on
  • The dealer will ask the question and you will find the answer on the fact sheet
  • you say the answer to the dealer and see if you’re right
  • if you get the answer wrong you go back 3 spaces
  • If you land on a blank you stay there

Feedback 🙂

Grandma Mary – A  very well thought out game. Very enjoyable to play and answers were interesting to say the least . I’ll look forward to playing this new game with my other grandchildren next time I’m in Germany.

Thank you to all the people who made this happen 🙂
