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 the children. They look at the sample questions and correct the ‘boring’ sentences. Really easy to follow. Topics also inlcuded: langauge choice; narrative texts.
