Are your students needing to improve their English word order? These worksheets and follow up activity will help with both written and spoken sentence construction.
The 17 worksheets provide illustrations with words provided, in a jumbled order, for making sentences to describe the pictures. Students have the opportunity to rearrange the words and write a sentence describing what is happening in each picture. An additional benefit to completing this task, is that English vocabulary can also be increased because of the use of the visuals depicting the activities to be described.
There are 68 sentences to be completed and an optional front cover for use if the worksheets are to be made into booklets. Star Wars characters have been added to make the worksheets more appealing to Star Wars fans.
A sheet for recording students’ completion of the sheets is included.
Answer sheets are also provided, giving the option for peer correction.
There are verb reference pages at the beginning ( in colour) for use if vocabulary is unknown. All worksheets are in black only, so printing costs are kept to a minimum. If access to photocopying facilities is limited or unavailable, the answers to the questions could be written in a note book, enabling the worksheets to be used over and over again with different students.
When the worksheets are completed, a suggested follow up activity could be one student miming a selected action from the illustrations in the worksheets. The other students then try to guess what the student is doing. Depending on the levels of language acquisition, students can use the models of the ordered sentences to express verbally in a sentence what is being mimed, or just provide a one word answer. The student providing the correct answer then gets a chance to choose a different activity and mime to the class. This is usually a fun activity enjoyed by all. If students have difficulty constructing a sentence or remembering the verb word, they can refer to their completed worksheets and read out what they have written or just provide the verb word describing the mimed activity. This enables participation for students who have reached different stages of English language acquisition.
