Another resource in our popular Chomwell Green series (see below). A lovely shared text with a touch of humour! Created and used by a literacy volunteer during a series of lessons on descriptive writing. Text can be used for a multitude of activities but is particularly good for work on prefixes and suffixes, and punctuation. Best enlarged to A3 to allow for annotation and highlighting. Includes suggested exercises and teaching ideas.
Tutor notes, student hand-out (L1/2) about objective v subjective (persuasive) descriptions, reading activity on fact and opinion (in Estate Agent ads) with fill-in sheet, and lots of writing ideas.
