Welcome back! I am Mr Joel, an English teacher at Lil’ but Mighty.
This video is an extension of the blog post I shared previously about how we can select the best picture to use, based on our experiences and the vocabulary that we have, and on previous stories we may have come across before. If you haven’t read that blog post yet, you can do so here.
In this video, I will be giving you 3 tips on how you can use the picture you have selected meaningfully in your composition. To help you understand this better, I will be providing you with a few examples too.
THIS COURSE WILL BE HELPFUL IF YOUR CHILD’S STORIES…
have an overly simple problem with only one main character
do not have an introduction or build-up that is relevant to the problem
have events that happen too suddenly without a build-up
lack depth e.g.
A boy went to the pool to swim and fell down
A boy went to the pool to practise for a competition. He fell down because he was chasing after his rival who snatched his goggles. Hence, he was unable to take part in the competition.
tend to be filled with gaps that leave readers baffled
lack a problem/ conflict or have a problem that does not have depth
lack a plan or have an overly simplified plan which does not help with the flow of the story
