Modal Switchit: Impossibility

Nearly all the cards focus on “impossibility” (the original name of the game) by asking permission, possibility and about ability using “Can I/you…?” to elicit “No, I can’t.”. In English we usually give “No!” plus reason, so… “Can you lend me some money?” “No! (No, I can’t.) I need all this money for myself.” In the rules I have suggested that a qualifier be added when the answer is ‘yes’. “Can you clean my shoes?” “Yes, I can. But it will cost you.”

Pronoun Switchit

This pack includes 10 Switchit cards and 70 Pronoun Cards representing 7 different subject pronouns. Each card has a question which must be answered using the target pronoun.

Quantifying Switchit

Teaches the use of “There is/are” with common quantifiers (a few-a little-a lot of-not many-not much-some), countable and uncountable nouns, and prepositions by having students form complete sentences in the relaxed atmosphere of a game. There is something special about this card game.
