Words and punctuation marks are jumbled everywhere. It’s your task to combine them into sentences that make sense!

Combine different words to make as many sentences as you can. Write the new sentences in your book. Don’t forget to use correct punctuation and grammar.

You can also add in your own words to the blank cards. These new words could be people, places or things (nouns).

Moving on:

Once you have finished, choose an extension card and complete the activity.

  • Story: Make a short story using the sentence saga cards. Remember to use correct punctuation.
  • Alliteration: Make sentences with alliteration using the sentence saga cards
  • Rhyme: Make sentences that rhyme using the sentence saga cards.
  • You: Make a sentence about yourself using the sentence saga cards.
