English grammar for kids: present simple roll sentences games

how to play

This is a fun way to practise sentence building and writing. In the game players roll a dice twice to figure out which words to use, then build a silly sentence.

  • Roll a dice twice.
  • Using the numbers from each rolls, build a silly sentence (positive, negative or question forms). For example: 1-6: A dog never plays tennis on Monday..
  • Write your sentences using the recording sheet.


  • Print out a game board and a recording sheet. Laminate the board for future use.
  • Before playing the game revise or pre-teach the vocabulary used in the activity.
  • You will need one game board, one recording sheet and one dice for each player to play the game.
