This is the bundled scrambled sentences for Journeys Reading
First Grade Unit 3
How Leopard Got His Spots
The Big Race
Print each scrambled sentence on different colored card stock. Laminate if possible, cut the cards apart and then put the sets of sentences into a baggie. (sets 1-4 in 1 baggie) Students order one sentence at a time. It doesn’t matter which sentence they start with as long as they write it beside the picture it matches. I sometimes use as a center, but also as a whole group activity where students work with partners on the floor with clipboards. During whole group, they order one sentence, 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.
