Writing Goals Update

This week I am reflecting on one of my writing goals

IALT: Improve my writing by learning how to:

* use a variety of sentence starters

This week I have been focusing on how to write a drop-in clause

Here is an example of a drop-in clause

Mr Forman is our teacher.
He loves his red car.
Mr Forman, who is our teacher, loves his red car.

Mr Forman is the subject of the sentence.
We change ‘He’ to ‘who’
We place commas around the clause we ‘drop-in’

Here are two examples of a drop-in clause that I have created.
[1]The dinosaur,who was wearing a nappy,was chasing the boy.
[2]The Action Hero,who was wearing a flowery headband,stormed through the jungle

I rate my understanding level at 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
My confidence level with using these types of sentences independently in my writing is

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
