BRIEF OUTLINE: This is a game in which the students race to be the first to find all the grammar mistakes. 





  1. Pass out the worksheet face down and tell the students not to turn it over. They turn them over at the same time and start to look for the correct/incorrect sentences.
  2. If they find a correct sentence they draw a circle on the line, but if they find an incorrect sentence they have to rewrite the entire sentence, not just the part that is wrong.
  3. After they finish with one sentence they go to the ALT or English teacher and have their sentence checked.
  4. If the sentence is OK, the student goes on to the next sentence, but if it is not they have to try again.
  5. The students repeat until the worksheet is finished.




  • This can be used for many different grammar points.



  • If you find the lines are getting long tell the students they can fix a couple of sentences before getting into line. 
  • For some classes it is best to let students work in pairs or groups.



  • I give the first one to finish a little prize and have them become a sentence checker along with the ALT and the English teacher.
