This pack deals with that overused word ‘said’. Zoggy reprimands the reader, saying don’t overuse boring words like said and gives over twenty alternative words – ‘exclaimed’, ‘responded’ or ‘muttered’. There is a vocabulary test to complete.
‘Breakthrough In Vocabulary Work Packs’ are unique, in that they set out to teach children to use higher level or better vocabulary. They are a ‘must have’ guide to improve your child’s writing. These packs demonstrate to children that they need not overuse ‘boring words’ like nice, got and said, because there are much more impressive words.
Our lovable character, Zoggy, the alien from planet Zen, encourages the pupil to work through the packs with him – providing humorous anecdotes about his stay on Earth. There are plenty of exercises to complete, including vocabulary tests exploring the meanings of words.
By the end of this book, the child should have expanded his vocabulary and be able to use better words in his or her own writing.
