Connect 4 - Subject-Verb Agreement

In this game, two players take turns shading a grid. The aim is to be the first to create a line of four shaded cells in a row horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.

Game Instructions:

Two players take turns selecting intersections on the grid. The goal is to create grammatically correct sentences in simple present tense. To achieve this, a player chooses an intersection, combining a subject, verb, object, and, when necessary, a preposition.

Note: Students should include a preposition in sentences that require it. For example, "She lives in Tokyo."

If a player successfully forms a correct sentence, including the preposition when needed, they can shade the selected intersection. Continue until one player connects four shaded intersections in a row, either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, akin to Connect Four.

Winning Example:
Player 1 forms the sentence "The cat eats fish" by selecting those three intersections and shades them, following the note's guidance. Player 1 wins if they connect four shaded intersections before Player 2.


Sentences must be grammatically correct and in simple present tense.
Players must use the available subjects, verbs, objects, and prepositions on the grid.
The first player to create a winning sequence of four shaded intersections wins.
