Practicing sentence structures
Word Jumble is a great activity to introduce example sentences and it allows students to think about sentence structure.

Word Jumble is a great activity to introduce example sentences and it allows students to think about sentence structure.

It appears in several activity books and I have come across it in various course books as well. In ‘Five-minute activities’ (Penny Ur & Andrew Wright, Cambridge University Press) it is called Jumbled Sentences. I’ve known it as Word Jumble.

I have used this activity a few times and I have tried several different ways of presenting it. It can be a useful activity as a first step to introducing key phrases or a dialogue.

Word Jumble can be a good zero-prep activity, you only need a few sentences. The sentences can be original, they can be taken from a course book, or they can be a way to introduce corrections. All you need a board and something to write with.

Divide the board into a grid. I have divided the board into quarters in this example, because I have four example sentences. There is a number in the bottom right-hand corner to indicate the number of sentences inside the square (a number 1 circled in red means there is 1 sentence).

The Activity: Students work together in pairs or small groups to order the words and reconstruct the sentences. Ask the students to change pairs (or move between groups) and check their answers. Finally, ask the students to arrange the sentences into a dialogue or to create a role-play based where they must use these phrases.
