Statement Of The Problem
Poor knowledge of grammar will surely put anyone at a disadvantage as
most of the tasks given in school for English lessons require a sound knowledge
of the language. Grammar plays an important role to accurately convey the
meaning across. It is important to have a sound knowledge of grammar to convey
your intended message across. “Improper grammar can affect the meaning and
clarity of an intended message” (Johnson, 2014). It is important to have
accurate grammar in your writing so that we are able to convey the intended
message in your writing accurately since many students are still doing
grammatical mistakes in writing. Thus, it is important that students have a
sound knowledge of grammar. For my research, I focus on verbs and preposition,
one of the grammar items in parts of speech which is important to help students
in writing accurately. Poor knowledge of grammar also will affect student’s
communication skills. Primary school stage level is the place which students
learn the basics level of on grammar knowledge. The teacher often finds that
many of them are still unable to use the correct verbs and preposition while
writing and communicating or speaking. When the students do not use correct
grammatical order they often make mistakes in making sentences or writing.
Therefore, this research mainly to do survey whether grammar games are
beneficial for students to gain knowledge on grammar particularly in parts of
speech which are focusing on verbs and preposition.
The main purpose of the research is to find the
usage of games in teaching grammar for primary school students. How the
