Grammar Fun

This year I added a little grammar fun to our educational experience. 

These little "props" will probably make a bigger impact than any lesson I could teach.

We've also had a little fun with spelling, using some of these crazy sentences to learn the "i before e" rule.

I before E except when eight feisty neighbors become over caffeinated and seize a sleigh filled with counterfeit freight while being pulled by eight foreign reindeer.

I before E unless you leisurely deceived eight overweight heirs to forfeit their sovereign conceits.

Atheists don't believe in I before E. Neither do theists. Neither does 'neither'. No one believes in grammar rules.

I'm linking up with Little Things Thursday


  1. Love this! You're on the right track (which is better than the one for trains carrying counterfeit freight)! I suspect many of the exceptions to the "i before e" rule are words originating from a different language. We're learning French spelling patterns here in Lyon. My daughter wanted to know why "collegue" has a "u"--but it was easy for her to remember when she realized the word would be "college" without it.

  2. Those are great examples of proper grammar. Loved them.
