Silly sentence worksheets
These delightfully fun writing activities are great for kids and teens. The silly sentence worksheets make writing a whole lot of fun. The more absurd the sentence the better, students get a lot of laughs while learning to create grammatically correct sentences.
The first roll a silly sentence worksheet above requires the class to have some dice. With a roll of the dice, they will get a random part of a sentence. Students are to write down each part as they go. After 5 rolls they will have a complete sentence that while may be a bit whacky, will still be grammatically sound.
Using these activities also offers a good opportunity to teach parts of speech. Can your class identify what are adjectives, nouns, verbs, pronouns etc?
You can break down sentences into individual parts to show how they are formed correctly. It is also a good time to provide ESL learners with some grammar formulas to help them understand better.e

You can also omit articles on your board grid to make it a little more difficult.
