Journeys First Grade Reading
Unit 4 Lesson 19
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 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 and raise their hand for the teacher to check. They read aloud and the teacher can ask questions. Students then write the sentence in their nicest handwriting, put cards to the side and pick another set to order. Questioning can include capitalization/punctuation, subject/predicate, grammar, and comprehension over the basal.
These sentences review some of the questions on the comprehension bubble sheet test.
