    Hello,


    Maybe one thing that you can do is to pick out the verbs and put them

    in the middle of the sentence, for most English sentences follow the

    order of subject + verb+ object.

    For example:


    ice cream little boy the eats


    Put "eats" more or less in the middle:


    ______ eats ______

    Who eats? "Boy" or "ice cream"? Of course, "ice cream" cannot eat. So:

    ____ boy eats _____


    Now you can easily finish the sentence.
