85 Personnage, objet, lieu, action Et si on inventait des histoires… au départ des livres ? (article paru dans Le Ligueur en octobre 2004) Mon papa avait un grand talent : il savait inventer des histoires ! À défaut de me transmettre ce don, mon généreux papa m’a offert à sa première parution la formidable Grammaire de l’imagination de Gianni Rodari (1). Je n’évoquerai pas ici des jeux expliqués par Rodari dans son livre : faire dérailler une histoire existante, y ajouter un élément insolite, inventer ce qui se passera après, mixer une salade de contes… J’aimerais présenter ici un jeu de groupe, qui utilise les livres comme matière première. C’est le jeu des personnages – objets – lieux – actions . Revenons à l’activité. Je fais un petit intermède pour préciser une « règle du jeu » essentielle : prenez toujours la première réponse qui vient. Il y aurait beaucoup à dire sur les enjeux de cette sombre histoire, mais ce n’est pas le lieu. (1) Gianni Rodari, Grammaire de l’imagination, éditions Rue du Monde.

Free Printable Worksheets for Preschool-Sixth Grade in Math, English, and more Text Messaging and Grammatical Development This longitudinal study is investigating whether the grammatical violations used in text messaging have a detrimental impact on grammatical development and other related literacy and language skills over the course of a year. Researchers from Coventry University collected text messages from three groups of children and young people (83 primary school children, 78 secondary school pupils and 49 undergraduates), who were then asked to complete a series of standardized assessments to measure their IQ, spelling ability, and understanding of written and spoken grammar. This process was repeated a year later to show any change in the relationship between texting and grammatical development over time. Although most participants in all three groups violated grammatical convention in their text messages, researchers found no evidence that this affected their understanding of written or spoken grammar at either point in time.
