Scrambled Sentences have help my students so much this year! They are great for building fluency, practicing making sentences make sense, capitalization, punctuation, comprehension, and sight words. Using a themed sentence pack helps students sort sentences and build them with ease. My students love sentence scramble and ask to play all the time!
There are several ways to use this activity. For my students who are just learning how to form sentences, we work together in small group to build and read each set.
For students who are ready to try it on their own you may choose to start slow and only use one sentence along with the student response page. After building the sentence the students will color a picture to match, write the sentence on the lines, and cut and glue the sentence together.
*You can also choose to use this as a NO PREP center and simply have students use the student response sheet without the cards!
There is also an option for students to unscramble four sentences at a time and use the tracing student response pages that match.
For students who are ready to go, there is a basic student response page where they will write the sentence correctly then draw a picture to match.
I use each type of response page and for some students I am only using the cards at this time. I love to meet each student where they are and help them grow so I am constantly looking for ways to differentiate!
