You photocopied a section from your fairytale that included dialogue last lesson.
Your task is to re-write that section and make the dialogue more engaging and interesting so that when you perform your stories for year 3 and 4, they will be able to easily imagine what your characters are like and how they sound.
When we read ‘Thief’, we noticed some things that we thought made the speech more effective:
– slang/informal language so the characters sound real
– italic font to emphasis certain words (you can underline words if hand-writing)
– using adverbs to instruct how the speech should be said
Try to include these in your own writing. You will compare within your groups next lesson and assess how effective your new version is.
