Product Description
Imagine That Animals Can Talk: Write An Interview Between Two Animals

Read the interviews with Monster the dog and Millie the cat. Ask the child to add to it. They can then write their own interview between two animals.

Imagine That You Write For A Pet Problem Page In A Magazine

Read the letters on the problem page, written by Raj, the vet. Look at the words he uses to reply - 'your cat', 'I suggest', 'would cheer him up...' Now, ask the child to write a reply to 'concerned cat lover' offering more advice. Next, the child should write to Raj about a pet (or a wild animal like a squirrel). They can ask his advice about something that is bothering them, concerning their animals welfare.

Invent A Product For A Pet

Firstly, the child is asked to invent a new food for their pet and then to invent a weird and wacky product for their pet to use. They can use the ideas provided to help them. Ask the child to draw their invention, to label its main features and to describe how it work and why it is unique.

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 11+ examinations or S.A.T.s. The packs will also benefit children with special needs, or where English is a second language.
