Description

Now in a fully up to date third edition, Descriptosaurus is the first book for creative writing that is a thematic expansion of a dictionary and a thesaurus; it provides children with a comprehensive resource with which to expand their descriptive vocabulary, experiment with language and sentence structure and build up narratives based around settings, characters and creatures. Descriptosaurus positions the word, zooms in on it to examine the meaning, expands it into phrases, and then provides alternatives in words, phrases and sentences; the model was once created and refined over a lot of years on account of feedback from children inside and outside the school room as to the resources they required to inspire and assist them with their writing. For reluctant writers or those faced with blank page syndrome, it provides essential starting points to encourage putting pen to paper, not only inspiring children, but also building their confidence, encouraging them to use, apply and create the usage of the correct grammatical structures, and adding colour to their writing through evaluation and experimentation., New features for this up to date third edition include:Sample poemsWord banks and model sentences to provide a step by step process for development of vocabulary and understanding of phrase, clause and sentence structureContextualised grammar and punctuation instruction and guidanceUnits of work where the models can also be incorporated in a creative focusA companion website containing the entire features of the book, games, planning sheets and vocabulary buildersThis is an ideal resource to dramatically fortify children’s creative writing for all KS2 primary and KS3 secondary English teachers, literacy coordinators and parents. It would also make an excellent classroom book for PGCE students, particularly Primary PGCE with English specialism.
