Bundle of Journeys Unit 5 Reading Scrambled Sentences
The Tree- Poppleton Forever
Whistle for Willie
A Butterfly Grows
The New Friend
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. 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 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. My questioning includes capitalization/punctuation, subject/predicate, grammar, and comprehension over the basal.
