Your child can never be too young to learn how to write. In fact, starting at a young age gives your child an added advantage. Primary 1 and 2 pupils at LiteracyPlus learn about Story Structures and how they can make their stories interesting using the 4-picture sequential prompt. They understand that a good composition has a clear Introduction, Middle and End. That’s what Krychelle has shown in this composition about “A Snake Sighting”.
Despite being in Primary 2, Krychelle has displayed her knowledge of beginning her introduction with an Interesting Story Starter (ISS) to capture the attention of her reader. She has also incorporated the use of precise nouns such as “reticulated python” and “Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore” to make her composition extremely realistic.
In addition, Krychelle included precise adjectives such as “petrified” and precise verbs such as “investigated” and “slither” to make her writing more captivating.
When your child is able to write with precise language, his or her story instantly draws the reader in! Krychelle’s addition of sensory descriptions adds an element of realism and allows her composition to stand out from the crowd.
At LiteracyPlus, our lower primary pupils learn to create compositions that go beyond the basics. Apart from having an awareness of narrative story structures, our P1 and P2 students gain the knowledge to improve on their language skills by writing with precise nouns, adjectives and verbs. To give our students an edge, we also teach them to use Show Not Tell techniques to describe how their characters experience emotions. Great work, Krychelle!
