Language – Words into Sentences

The English language has its own order that word go into to make a coherent sentence.  In fact, each language has its own particular order.  Although the order is learned through the process of just listening and mimicking sentences since early childhood, a cognitive understanding is a valuable resource to good writing.  There are several ways that the Montessori guide presents these ideas to children.  One is found below.  Each set of cards represents a sentence.  Each word in the sentence is broken down into a card.  The cards are assembled to form a coherent sentence. This lesson also reinforces the capitalization at the beginning of a sentence and the period at the end of a sentence.  It also encourages reading fluency.

This week I created several levels of sentences, some of which challenged the 12 year-olds, about their volcano focus.

Giggling over funny word orders.
