You're a voluneer creating wildlife reports at a nature reserve. Your reports earn you recognition for a job opening. But nature's beauty cannot disguise the game's competitive heart. To gain the recognition you seek, you'll need to:
With four ways to earn points and thousands of sentence possibilities, your chances for gaining the recognition you seek are only limited by your imagination and creativity.
Using word cards, create sentences for your wildlife report. Earn recognition points from word values, matching sentence patterns, and finding your favorite bird. Win with the most points or, if playing solo, enough to reach a recognition goal.
Start with a capitalized word. Add words from left to right using intuitive next word symbols to create thousands of sentence combinations. You decide when to complete and score your sentence.
Birdwatch while creating your report. You'll pick a unique bird whose presence doubles word values. If a word has your bird, its value is doubled.
Earn bonus points for matching sentence patterns. Pattern cards show an example sentence, its words, and interesting grammar facts.
Earn bonus points for completing three difficulty levels of sentences. Collect the Food (easy) , Nests (moderate), and Eggs (challenging) symbols found on pattern cards to earn a valuable bonus.
One-player mode allows you to sharpen your skills and learn new approaches to creating different sentences. As your skills grow, so will your achievements.
Besides being easy and fun for beginner readers and English language learners, Birds and Words uses the 5 parts of a sentence and the 8 parts of speech. It's an ideal activity that complies with many national and state English curriculum standards. See the Educator's Guide for more details. Players using both card levels learn about the 4 verb types (transitive, intransitive, linking, helping), nouns as subjects and direct objects, adverbs and adjectives, relative and personal pronouns, and conjunctions. English's core sentence patterns are front and center during gameplay. Birds and Words makes learning English grammar a fun, creative, and rewarding personal achievement event.
