Form the Sentence
ESL Students puts the words in order to form the proper complete sentences.
What is learnt?
Sentences and sentence formation.
Select a text.
How the game is played:
- Ask the students to skim the text and to choose their favourite word. Ask some of them to say their words to the group and explain why they like them.
- Ask each student to secretly choose their favourite sentence from the text. They then cut or fold and tear a piece of paper into enough oblongs to be able to write each word (including punctuation) on a separate piece.
- Each student mixes up the pieces and places them on their chair. Students then mill around, choose a chair and reconstruct the sentence on it. Remind them to remix the pieces before moving on. Stop them when they've done half a dozen sentence reconstructions.
