This site challenges students to create sentences. One or several words are provided and students must click and drag them in the correct order to construct a sentence. There are three levels of difficulty. The main difference between the simple and more difficult levels are the amounts of words or statements to put into the correct order. Easier levels only have three words, while more difficult levels have five or more.

The website also features a "full screen" option, printable worksheets, engaging sound effects (with an option to turn the music off), and animations. Although this site uses British English, this activity is useful to practice American English. At the time of this review, all words were common in both forms of English. Be aware: the animation of this activity can be a bit distracting. The site requires Flash and Adobe Acrobat. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): grammar (216), punctuation (43), word order (5)

In the Classroom

Use the three difficulty levels to differentiate for your students. Share this website with your class on an interactive whiteboard or projector and show the students HOW to use the program. Then, create a learning center for students to use this website, or provide individual laptops or computers. Be sure to provide headsets. Why not split your class into two teams and make this activity a class competition. Have students create their own Kung-Fu Sentences (minus the "karate kid") using WORD or good old fashion paper and pencil.

You may want to list this website in your class newsletter and on your class website so students can practice creating sentences at home.

Practice telling time at this site created by the BBC. Molly and Max (your child guides) are at Big Ben in London. They need your help to make sure the time is correct on this famous building. There are three levels of difficulty. Simple questions ask for the time, while the more difficult questions ask what time it will be in a specific amount of time (for example, what time will it be in 3 hours and 10 minutes). The website also features a "full screen" option, printable worksheets, engaging sound effects (music can be turned off), and animations. This site requires Flash and Adobe Acrobat. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.
