What are jumbled up sentences?

Also known as shuffled sentences, they are used to see how well students are able to put words together in order to form sentences. 

The sentence above has an extra word. The objective is to identify which word does not fit. 

When students are presented with this exercise, there is a simple strategy:

  • Read across the words
  • Think about what the subject of the sentence could be
  • Pair the verbs with adverbs and nouns with adjectives.

By employing this strategy, the student is grouping words and then forming the initial sentence. The words that remain can then be added to that sentence and the word that does not fit, identified.
