This week I am reflecting on one of my writing goals
IALT: Improve my writing by learning how to:
* use a variety of sentence starters
This week I have been focusing on how to write a drop-in clause
Here is an example of a drop-in clause
Mr Forman is our teacher.
He loves his red car.
Mr Forman, who is our teacher, loves his red car.
Mr Forman is the subject of the sentence.
We change ‘He’ to ‘who’
We place commas around the clause we ‘drop-in’
Here are two examples of a drop-in clause that I have created.
Dania, who likes to play with her chickens, is awesome.
The footballer, who was singing barbie girl, was kicking the ball.
I rate my understanding level at 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
My confidence level with using these types of sentences independently in my writing is
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
