Homework Help!

Having had a couple of questions from children I have decided to upload some Homework help! For spelling homework I encourage the children to use the skills that they have developed in their previous class on VCOP in their sentences. I ask for everyone to TRY and use exciting openers and wow words in each sentence to make them exciting. I have created a bank of wow words and exciting openers below to help:

 

Exciting Openers

Use openers to begin sentences in an interesting way. Try to avoid beginning with he, she, I, the. Some examples you may wish to use:

One sunny morning…

A long time ago…

Yesterday Evening…

Suddenly…

 

WOW Words

Wow words are used to make a sentence more interesting. They should be adventurous adjectives (describing words) that we would not use all of the time. For example:

beautiful, gigantic, freezing, enormous, magical, silently, generously, fearful, terrified, curious, nervously.

 

These are areas that we are currently working on in class and it would be great if the children can have a go at home to further develop their writing skills.
