Really useful 10 min warm up activity in a Literacy lesson. Teaching children to avoid using boring words like ‘and’ ‘but’. Instead to use other connectives. I just put this up on the interactive whiteboard and so one activity a day at the beginning of my lesson and go through the examples with t More…he children. They look at the sample questions and correct the ‘boring’ sentences. Really easy to follow. Topics also inlcuded: langauge choice; narrative texts.
