Remind your child that a sentence is a complete idea, starts with a capital letter, and ends with some type of punctuation (period, question mark, or exclamation mark). An activity that can help your child recognize word order in sentences is to put various words on different note cards. One word per note card. After the cards are labeled have your child lay the note cards out in front. Ask your child to form as many different sentences using the note cards. After a sentence is formed, have your child break apart the words and try to complete a new sentence.
