Lesson 1-

Goal: To use expanded noun phrases.

 

Warm up- What is in the box?

Write me 5 questions in full sentences about what is inside my box. Email your questions to me and I will answer them Can you guess from my answers?

1st clue- It is freezing!

 

Task

Look through the PowerPoint about expanded noun phrases.

 

Complete the Triple- Decker sandwich tasks and the Expand that Noun Phrase task.  (You could have- The white, creamy milk sat on the table.)

 

Once you have completed these, write 5 expanded noun phrases for your character that you created last week. Think about the setting that you put them in and use this to help you to write the sentences. Wilfred the Wild was getting ready for battle so I will show this in my sentences. You do not have to include a prepositional phrase but if you would like to challenge yourself then you can give it a go!

 

Examples

  • Wilfred the Wild has long, greasy hair which he uses to cover his weary face.
  • Wilfred the Wild put on his spectacular, heavy helmet. He made his way to the tremendous, agile long boat.
