Print each scrambled sentence on different colored cardstock. Laminate if possible, cut them apart and then put the sets of sentences (1 of each sentence) into a baggie. Students order one sentence at a time and write it beside the picture it matches. This can be used as a center or as a whole group activity where students work with partners on the floor with clipboards. During whole group, they order one sentence and raise their hand for me to check. They read aloud to me and I ask questions, then they write in their nicest handwriting, put cards to the side and pick another set to order. Questioning includes capitalization/punctuation, subject/predicate, grammar, and comprehension over the basal.
