  • What is wrong with this sentence?

Word order is important when writing sentences!

  • Did you notice that the words in the opening sentence are not in the correct order?

Write the words from the sentence on index cards — one word on each card:

  • boy
  • The
  • home
  • ran

Move the cards around to put the sentence in the correct order. Show your teacher or parent how you can change the order of the words to make sense!

Begin watching the following excerpt from the Lesson 1 - Simple Sentences video. The teacher will demonstrate how to put words in order to make a sentence. Remember that sentences must make sense. You will come back to this video for the Related Lessons found in the right-hand sidebar:
