Word order is important and here is a fun activity to sensitize students to word order and sentence structure of the English language.
1. Prepare banks with a large number of words. To make the activity more interesting and fun, you can type words with different fonts and sizes on different colour paper or cut them from magazines and newspapers.
2. Divide the students into groups and give each group a word bank, a sheet of paper and a glue stick.
3. The students work together and make sentences from the words in the bank and stick them to the sheet of paper so that it looks like a ransom letter note.
4. Stick the sheets on the wall.
