Four Squares Incorrect Sentences

Four Squares Incorrect Sentences

Students correct sentences from a handout in teams. Teams get one square on a game board for correctly making the sentence. The goal is to get four squares in a row.

Level:  Intermediate

Topic:  Warmer

Grammar:  Review

Time:  45 minutes


  • Make one copy of the Handout for each student.
  • Make one copy of the Key for the teacher.
  • Make one copy of the Game Board for the teacher.
  • Markers – 2 colors



Divide the class into two teams, and assign a color for each group. Display the Game Board at the front of the room.


Give a Handout to each student. Allow 5 minutes for the students to read the sentences and try to correct them.


Decide which team will go first. The first team chooses a number from the Handout and tries to produce the correct sentence.

If the group is correct, then they can fill in the square with their color. If the answer is incorrect, then the team does not get anything.


The other team chooses a number from the game board, and tries to produce the correct sentence.


Continue alternating until all of the sentences have been corrected.


The task is for the teams to get a block of four squares in a row. The blocks of four can be in a square or in a row. Groups get one point for each block of four. The group with the most points is the winner.

Extended Practice

Ask students to write the correct sentences on their Handout.
