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. This can be used 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 the teacher to check. They read aloud to the teacher and the teacher asks questions, then they write 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.

The robins laugh when the kite does not fly.
Toad feels silly but he tries again and again.
The wind blows the kite up into the sky.
