Write About A Day Off School Sick (7-11 years)
Read through the ‘sick’ words. Then read Sam’s recount of his day off school. Look how he structured the events in order. Now, the child is asked to write a recount of a day off school when they were sick. Next, fill in Kim’s story and help her mum write a short formal letter to her teacher.
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.
