writing week 2 term 2 2016

WHAT?
This week I am reflecting on one of my writing goals


IALT: Improve my writing by learning how to:


* use a variety of sentence starters


This week I have been focusing on how to write a drop-in clause


SO WHAT?
Here is an example of a drop-in clause


Mr Forman is our teacher.
He loves his red car.
Mr Forman, who is our teacher, loves his red car.


Mr Forman is the subject of the sentence.
We change ‘He’ to ‘who’
We place commas around the clause we ‘drop-in’


MY EXAMPLES:
Here are two examples of a drop-in clause that I have created.
[1] the venomous spider,who had bulging biceps and a hairy chest,scuttled across supermarket.
[2] the dinosaur,who was wearing a nappy,was chasing a boy.


NOW WHAT?
I rate my understanding level at 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
My confidence level with using these types of sentences independently in my writing is
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
