Adverbial phrases

Don’t get too excited, but here is a piece of homework I set my group today. We have three groups and are focusing on some of the more tricky and intricate aspects of grammar so we can then feed it into our writing during the week.

Using the grammar in our writing is far more important than circling nouns and ticking verbs.

Feel free to use/abuse/tweak.

More to follow.

If you like it, please share or leave a comment. 🙂

Shoved-In-Clause: The Response

An ode to Mr Waldram – a response to his Shoved-in-clause ‘song’

Written by Mrs S Green & Mrs S Mitchell

You better try hard to make your words rhyme,

The ones you gave us are way out of time

Shoved in clause was harder this time!

We took a simple sentence,

Just like our teacher said

But the way he made his words rhyme

It made us scratch our heads. Oh…

You better try hard to make your words rhyme,

The ones you gave us are way out of time

Shoved in clause was harder this time!

Shoved-in-clause song

Perfect revision for this time of the year. Sing along to the festive classic: Santa Claus is coming to town. And maybe even get the children learning about embedded/subordinate clauses. We call them shoved-in…

 

You better embed,

You better shove in,

Better construct

A sentence to win;

Shoved-in-Clause is coming to town.

It’s not just a list

With commas to split;

The rule is simple and this is it:

Shoved-in-Clause is coming to town.

Take a simple sentence

Like: My teacher is class

Add in extra detail,

Brackets, commas or the dash

O! My teacher (Mr

Waldram) is class

Pay attention

I’m telling you fast, ‘cus

Shoved-in-Clause is coming to town.

Shoved-in-Clause is coming to town.
