Scrambled sentences develop several key reading skills. Students practice decoding words with short and long vowel patterns in the 24 sets of 3 sentences with matching pictures. A few sight words (such as “the”) are included. They begin to look for the first word (with the capital) and the last word (with the period or question mark). Common suffixes are on some words. Pictures provide clues.
These fun scrambled sentences can be one of the first real "reading" experiences for many students. Coupling decodable words and predictability ensures success. Working through 24 unique sets affords sufficient practice for skill mastery.
