Introducing Zoggy. Am I a ‘nice’ guy?
In this pack Zoggy points out that the words ‘nice’ and ‘got’ are boring. There are many alternative words you can use – like ‘cheerful’, ‘jolly’, ‘likeable’ or ‘brilliant’. Help complete Zoggy’s report and choose the right word in the right place or context.
‘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 or her vocabulary and be able to use better words in his or her own writing.
