Descriptosaurus PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Descriptosaurus free pdf "Descriptosaurus" is the first book for creative writing that is a thematic expansion of a dictionary and a thesaurus. It provides children with a comprehensive resource with which to expand their descriptive vocabulary, experiment with language and sentence structure and build up narratives based around the following areas: Settings - landscapes, settlements and atmospheres- Characters - appearance, emotions and personality- and, Creatures - appearance, abilities and habitats. This model was created as a result of feedback from children as to the resources they required to inspire and assist them with their writing. For reluctant writers or those faced with blank page syndrome, "Descriptosaurus" provides useful starting points to encourage putting pen to paper. Using "Descriptosaurus" will not only inspire children, it will build their confidence and dramatically improve the content of their writing. Alison Wilcox has extensive teaching experience in schools in England and Scotland. Colleagues describe her methods as 'innovative and inspirational to even the most reluctant of writers.
