Make a Sentence

Sentence formation activities (especially in game format) help learners in more ways than one:

    1. They help learners lengthen their sentences by adding antecedents (“Due to the rainstorm”).
    2. They help learners  lengthen their sentences by adding more descriptive words.
    3. They help learners see a sentence as a complete thought.
    4. They build working memory, as you hold one phrase in mind while searching for a phrase to add to it.
    5. They build expressive language by helping learners practice it.

Here are some games to try:
