How can your child’s composition about “Killer Litter” stand out from the crowd?
- Firstly, he or she will need to use vivid descriptions to slow down the scene (imagine a video where you press “pause” and “play” constantly and describe each action).
- In addition, your child needs to be able to string these descriptions together with logical sequencing. What event should happen before another? What thought does the character have at this point in time?
- Aside from these, the use of precise verbs and nouns also helps the reader visualise each scene clearly, as though they are right there, watching the story unfold.
In this composition, Huan Ming has done just that by accurately sequencing the sensory descriptions as well as Show, Not Tell reactions of his characters. His slowed-down scenes as well as precise verbs enable the reader to truly picture what is happening in each stage of the story, making this a wonderful read.
