Describe My Best Friend (7-11 years)
Read Sam and Kim’s descriptions of their best friends. Look at how they organise their information into paragraphs, add interesting details and use good words and adjectives. Now, the child is asked to answer the 15 questions and to write about their best friend.
This series provides prompts to get the child to write. It provides starting points to encourage children of all abilities to write – even the most reluctant writers. With this series they will be inspired to write stories, poems, play scripts, diaries, reports, persuasive leaflets and more.
More than this, the child will learn writing techniques; simple, compound and complex sentences, connectives and spelling, punctuation and grammar tips. There is an emphasis on improving vocabulary – looking at lots of better word choices: harder adjectives, more powerful verbs and adverbs.
