Learn how to read and write English sentences, CVC words, and some phonics with this fun English sentence game.

Welcome to Sentence Scramble - the English Sentence game.

Helping young learners move from learning their ABC's and CVCs and starting to use these words in mixed up sentences. it helps to practice blending and sentence construction with this simple English sentence game.

This educational app contains simple and more complex sentences that they have to rearrange to their correct form.

Simple sentences are mixed up and children and students are asked to move the words till they spell these sentences correctly. They start with very simple three words sentences and move up to six and 7 word sentences. These are more complex so there are fewer of them. This Sentence game is designed to help reinforce sentence construction and English grammar rules in a fun way. It is also on my website so it can be played as a quick break in classrooms if there are not enough tablets.

It can be used to help with spelling strategies, including sounding out, picture recognition, phonics and subject verb object forms and use of adjectives

In this game i have included 3 versions:

Countdown: a 60 second initial timer where the student tries to do as many words as they
can in time. This allows classrooms with less access to technology to take turns easier. It also has bonus time if they can complete each level in time.

Pictures Round: There are 50 sentences with picture clues to try to help them if they are having difficultly, the visuals also help young learners who are not ready for just words yet.

Word hints: There is a short word hint if the question mark is pressed that may help if the children or students are struggling.

I am an English teacher and teach literacy, reading strategies and phonics to young learners. The easiest way is to use games and make lessons fun. This app has been tried on my own students in their reading and phonics lessons and it makes reading much easier when they are engaged and motivated. I often found constructing sentences to be a challenge so thought I would release this sentence game.

As I teach it is often a struggle to find something that is just a tool to help teach a point so I made these English, phonics, sentence games and grammar games.

They are all Classroom friendly and can be played for 2-10 minutes as a part of a lesson.
Sometimes it is not about the flashy animations but about the content and that is what I hope this sentence game can do.

I have found my students confidence is using English words, English grammar and English phonics has improved by being able to engage on their own, or with friends before being asked to do tasks in front of the class.
This app goes someway in supporting that skill.

Teaching phonics can be more than just flashcards with apps like these you can watch all your students play learn and have fun at the same time!

Although made for ESL ( English as Second language) it can be used for any grade of students who need a little help or boost.
The best way to do this is not to play and play and play but to dip in once or twice a week to practice and learn. This is why i have kept them simple and easy so they can be used in English and Second language classrooms as a resource not a curriculum.

This said… I will make this sentence game more ‘flashy’ in the next update as well as add some more sentences and make the time longer.

I hope you and your students/children have fun learning with these and that you are all reading English in no time!

Any questions drop me an email, also any feedback is welcome so I can improve and make more!

Needs a couple tweaks.

Great activities, fun music you can turn off if distracting. Love the different levels of support for the student! I was at a total loss of what to do to actually make the sentences at first until I discovered it by accident. Also, could not exit the program without going into the app store.
