Resource Description

In this resource, the child is given an outline to help write a story about a rabbit in three paragraphs. To write the story, the child is asked to complete sentences, selecting a suitable response from the multiple choice answers… or adding a suitable ending of their own creation. The emphasis is on choosing good vocabulary: interesting verbs, adjectives and adverbs. As a follow up activity, the child uses a series of questions to help him or her write their own animal story. Using their imagination, they have to think about the animals appearance, character and what they like to do.

This lesson will take approximately 1-2 hours – depending on the amount of detail the child writes in. It would be excellent as a homework handout.

This resource is featured in the book ‘We Love Animals: Get Going With Creative Writing’ series.

This series provides prompts to encourage children to write. It provides starting points, to encourage even the most reluctant writers.
Written in a lively magazine style format, each pack provides a step by step guide to teach children how to plan and write an animal themed story.

The packs also provide starting points to write e-mails, letters, play scripts, diaries, reports and other non fiction texts.

The child will learn writing techniques; simple, compound and complex sentences, connectives and spelling, punctuation and grammar tips. There is an emphasis on improving vocabulary – looking at lots of better word choices: harder adjectives, more powerful verbs and adverbs.

This series is recommended for use with children between the ages of 7-11 and provides writing practice for those children preparing to take examinations. The packs will also benefit children with special needs, or where English is a second language.
