Talk For Writing

Today we tried “Talk for Writing”! This is a technique we will be using a lot in Literacy this year. It’s based on the principle:

Think it

Say it

Like it

Write it!

We used the picture above as our starting point. We worked on taking our first ideas and saying them out loud, then seeing how we could improve them.

“The man jumped between the rocks over the gap” became “The brave and risk-taking man leaped effortlessly between the hard, bumpy rocks, clearing the gigantic gap.” What a great improvement!

We’ll be bringing you more of our great writing soon!
