You're an avid birdwatcher and volunteer at the magnificent Aves Nature Reserve. Your daily wildlife reports include where different bird species were seen, their number, food choices, and any bird activities. Well-written accounts give you the recognition you seek for landing future employment, perhaps someday becoming Aves' Director of Conservation.
Using word cards, build sentences for your daily wildlife report. Earn recognition points from word values, matching sentence patterns, and finding your favorite bird. Win with the most points or, if solo, enough to reach a recognition goal.
Start with a captialized word. Add words from left to right using intuitive next word symbols for creating thousands of different sentences. End your sentence with an end mark (period, question mark) and score your sentence.
It's birdwatching while creating sentences. You'll pick a unique bird from six varieties 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 example words, their symbols, and interesting grammar facts about the sentence you can create.
Bonus points are earned for completing three difficulty levels of sentences. Collect the Food (easy) , Nests (normal), and Eggs (challenging) symbols found on pattern cards to earn a valuable bonus.
Imagine playing solitare, but instead of being limited to 4 suits of cards, you have endless combinations of bird activities to describe. Your creativity and imagination guide gameplay.
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.
Who would think learning grammar could be so much fun?
Birds and Words was designed to be easy and fun for beginner readers, visual learners, and English language learners. Because it asks students to use the 5 parts of a sentence and the 8 parts of speech, it is an ideal supplemental activity that complies with many national and state English curriculum standards. See the Educator's Guide for more details. Birds and Words makes learning English grammar a fun, creative, and rewarding personal achievement event.
