Lots Of Writing Tasks About Christopher Columbus
In this pack, the child is asked to read the historical account about the voyage of Christopher Columbus and then to answer the questions. After this, they are asked to read the play script and then write some more dialogue for each scene in the play. They are then asked to write another play script about a different explorer. The child can use the Internet or a book to help them. Lastly, they are asked to research some exotic holiday destinations in the world and to make a brochure.
This series provides prompts to encourage children, of 7-11 years, to write. It provides starting points, to encourage even the most reluctant writers. In fact, the writer regularly dips into these packs for her own tutorial classes. With their lively ‘magazine style’ format, they are an ideal study aid to consolidate work on planning and writing stories and non fiction articles, expanding vocabulary and include many examples of children’s work. As well as this, the packs contain some very useful tips on writing techniques (as in writing simple, compound and complex sentences). The work in these packs will inspire children, who are practicing for exams, to write, and provide starting points for even the most reluctant writer, including those children with special educational needs and where English is a second language.
The work packs are ideal for home study and will reinforce the work done in school. They may be purchased in any order. There are a number of titles to choose from. By working through the packs, the student will grow in confidence and will learn to enjoy writing. The packs are also a useful resource for teachers and save hours of time when preparing lessons or homework tasks.
