Linking Verbs Online!

Ages 12-14 home-schooled students have been learning about linking verbs during English.
A linking verb connects the subject of a sentence to a noun or an adjective that names or describes the subject. They do not show any action; they simply link the subject with the rest of the sentence.  Learners came up with their new snacks and wrote sentences and phrases containing linking verbs. Have a look at the creative designs that the students have prepared.

Text Features and Visual Information

Students in year 4 have been learning about Text Features during their English lessons this week! The children took part in a fun challenge where they made their own posters using the text features that they have learned about.  Text features include all the components of a story or article that are not the main body of text. These include the table of contents, index, glossary, headings, bold words, sidebars, pictures and captions, and labeled diagrams.  Readers of all ages, especially struggling readers tend to skip over many of the text features provided within a text. To help readers understand their importance, the tutor asked the students take some time before reading to look through the photographs/illustrations, charts, graphs, or maps and talk about what they noticed. They then went on to make some predictions about what they’ll learn and started a list of questions they have based off of the text features which then were put together on posters!

Descriptive writing imprints images into the reader’s mind, making you feel as though you’re “right there.” Its all about engaging the five senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch to transport the reader and stir emotion.
