Franken-sentences


Frankenstein
(verb) : To cobble something together in an inventive manner.

I think I overuse this word (if possible).

For example:
We recently moved this past summer.  Before our current, oh-so-spacious home we used to live in a great little townhouse.  That was the problem, thought.  It was little.  In efforts to save space my husband took one of my half bookshelves and a half cabinet, stacked them on top of each other, and then fastened them together in the back.

Frankensteining.

That's what I call my "Franken-cabinet" or "Franken-shelf".

That being said, perhaps you will now understand my newest center! I call it . . .

"Franken-Sentences!"

This is a fun way to get your kids to pay attention to reading for meaning.  Students must rearrange and piece together these broken sentences to create a working sentence.  Each sentence must make sense.

This package includes 10 sets of sentences, recording sheet, and answer key.  The 1st 5 sets show capitalization and punctuation that can be used as clues when piecing the sentences together. The last 5 sets do not have punctuation or capitalization and will be more challenging.
