"Writing Rearrange" is a writing activity for teaching ESL

To do this activity:

  • Take a sentence from your lesson.
  • Rearrange it on the board. Putting the first word in the back, the middle in the front, etc.
  • Call two students to the board.
  • Have them put it in the correct order.
  • Continue

You could also do this on a piece of paper, create multiple items, photocopy it and hand them out to the students. You can also make it more like a game and give the student who is the fastest to say it correctly a point.
