Teaching Ideas

Inversion can be one of the more challenging grammar concepts for students to grasp. However, with a bit of creativity, you can make learning inversion engaging and enjoyable for your class. Here are some ideas for teaching inversion in a fun way that your students will love.

Use Inversion Grammar Games

One of the best ways to teach inversion is through interactive games. Here are some inversion grammar games to try:

  • Inversion sentence scramble: Write inversion sentences on strips of paper and scramble the word order. Have students work in teams to unscramble the sentences.

  • Inversion basketball: Label two baskets or boxes as “Correct Inversion” and “Incorrect Inversion.” Read sentences aloud and have students “shoot” a ball of paper into the correct basket.

  • Inversion stations: Set up stations around the room with different inversion focused activities at each one. These could include sentence unscrambling, inversion sentence completion sheets, identifying incorrect inversions, etc.

  • Inversion volleyball: Have students sit on opposite sides of the room. Say a sentence and toss a ball back and forth as they convert it to inversion by adding the helper words.
