Lot’s Of Writing Tasks About Being Out And About

The child should read the radio script from Guinea Pig Radio and learn about dialogue, as presenters George and Christabelle chat. Next, the child is asked to write a text or e-mail to the shows feature ‘Love To Be There’, describing the most exciting places they have visited. Alternatively, the child could write a radio script of a phone conversation between themselves and the presenter, describing an incredible event they have experienced.

Next, the child should imagine what the other listeners who contact the radio show are like. Use their experiences to write some stories with characters, setting and plot.
Now, the child is asked to think up some outstanding verbs to add to the ‘I am’ list. The child will learn more about varying their sentences and the use of sub clauses in complex sentences.

This series provides prompts to encourage children, of 7-11 years, to write. It provides starting points, to encourage even the most reluctant writers. In fact, the writer regularly dips into these packs for her own tutorial classes. With their lively ‘magazine style’ format, they are an ideal study aid to consolidate work on planning and writing stories and non fiction articles, expanding vocabulary and include many examples of children’s work. As well as this, the packs contain some very useful tips on writing techniques (as in writing simple, compound and complex sentences). The work in these packs will inspire children, who are practicing for exams, to write, and provide starting points for even the most reluctant writer, including those children with special educational needs and where English is a second language.

The work packs are ideal for home study and will reinforce the work done in school. They may be purchased in any order. There are a number of titles to choose from. By working through the packs, the student will grow in confidence and will learn to enjoy writing. The packs are also a useful resource for teachers and save hours of time when preparing lessons or homework tasks.

Guinea Pig Education

Why Choose Guinea Pig Books? Guinea Pig Education books are written by Sally Anne, a teacher and private tutor, with over thirty years experience. We aim to give the struggling learner, or those just starting out on the learning road, the chance to learn to love reading and writing. Our resources are successful because they employ the same unique strategies that are used in Sally Anne’s lessons and consequently, will help build a child’s confidence, develop their imagination and encourage them to write down their own ideas. Working through Guinea Pig books, is like having a private tutor at your side, which is why they are so successful in motivating students of all ages. Our mission is to re-educate young learners that reading and writing are not dull, but rather rewarding and satisfying.
