Wow!  It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a new idea!  Going back to teaching has kept me very busy, as have my own two boys.  I hope to post a lot more ideas in the New Year…so be on the lookout!

Super Scrambled Sentences!

Here’s an easy, hands-on activity that builds skills in decoding words and in understanding sentence structure.  First, write a simple, four or five word sentence on a strip of paper.  Next, cut apart the sentence in between each word.  (You should have four or five small pieces of paper – each with one word from the sentence.)  Then, scramble up the papers on a table so that they are in mixed-up order.  Now, have your child read each word and put the words in the correct order to unscramble the sentence!  Remind your child to use the “capital letter” and the “end mark” (. – ? – !)  to help him unscramble the sentence correctly.  And remember to store your scrambled sentences in envelopes so that you can use them again and again!
