End of term writing.
Work for supply/cover/substitute teacher when I was off.
I have used it for two job interviews. (I was successful in both.)
Children have loved the story of the Dream Giver and I have always got excellent narrative writing back from the children. You may need to change or adapt this slightly to suit the ability of your class. I have used this in year 5/6 in the UK where they are preparing for the state exams and they are extremely familiar with the grammatically terms that are used. The video link can also be assessed through You Tube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYwMuM9qFIg
