This 19 page activity includes 3 levels of sentence lengths. Sentences are either 6, 12, or 18 words long. Sentences are cut apart and words are put in plastic eggs. Students work in groups and collect eggs and then remove the words from the eggs and put them in order to make a complete sentence. Students will then write the sentence on a response sheet.
You could choose to only use 6 word sentences at the beginning of the year and gradually get more difficult or use all three levels at the same time and assign students to the levels.
Common Core Standards are addressed. Students will focus on capitals and end marks and if the sentence makes sense.
