This comprehensive pack contains:
- Multiple step-by-step lesson plans (each one guides the teacher in the most effective way to teach the concepts of the lesson, and provides helpful tips and hints for effective practice).
- A variety of attractive worksheets and hand-outs which accompany the lesson plans.
- A list of 30 narrative writing topics and prompts.
- A beautiful A2 poster on 'Tips For Great Writing' to brighten up your classroom and to teach learners how to be great writers
