Sentence Scramble Game

Nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, articles, adverbs, and prepositions form the cast for playing Sentence Scramble. This is a great game for use with elementary students and international students learning English as a second language. The object is to form as many sentences as possible with a color-coded set of word cards. Words have been carefully selected from a ranked list of the most common words in English. Teaching goals may focus on basic sentence structure, grammatical function of a part of speech, or vocabulary development. For group, pair, or individual play. 

Intended Use: Use parts of speech to help understand the basic structure of English sentences

Key Objectives (State, National & Common Core Standards) :

adjectives, adverbs, and prepositions)
