“Sentence Navigators” are a term and tool developed by English teacher Jason Renshaw about ten years ago. They are basically grids with words that challenge the reader to select the correct ones to make a sentence.

He gave me permission to share many that he created years ago, which you can access at “SENTENCE NAVIGATOR” IS JASON RENSHAW’S GIFT TO ESL/EFL/ELL TEACHERS EVERYWHERE!

Katie Hull and I also included a chapter about them in our book, The ELL Teacher’s Toolbox.

Last week, my talented student teacher, Alejandro Rodriguez, created several to help him teach about hobbies to our Newcomers class, and you can download them here.

It’s also a neat exercise to have students create their own for classmates to complete.
