How Leopard Got His Spots
Thanks for purchasing this resource. 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 then they write it beside the picture that it matches. This can be used as a center, but also as a whole group activity where students work with partners on the floor with clipboards. During whole group, partners order one sentence and raise their hand for the teacher to check. They read aloud it aloud to the teacher and this gives the teacher an opportunity to ask questions. Questioning can include capitalization/punctuation, subject/predicate, grammar, and comprehension over the basal. Students then write in the sentence in their nicest handwriting, put cards to the side and pick another set to order.
