Zoggy takes a walk’ and ‘Some adjectives just sound right with a particular noun’
Zoggy Takes A Walk
It is a beautiful day to walk in the park, but that word ‘walk’ is so dull, when we can use high end vocabulary like ‘stroll’, ‘amble’ or ‘wander’. Make sure your children remember these superior alternatives. Replace the boring words in the passage, check them and then complete the vocabulary test.
Some Adjectives Just Sound Right With A Particular Noun
In this pack the children are asked to pair up the nouns and adjectives. Do they work together? Do they sound familiar? For example, strong suspicion. Work through the exercises and then check your answers.
‘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.
