Friday’s Fog

The branch reaches out to the thick fog.

The fog enveloped our school, refusing to let the sun peek in and see us.

The fog floated over the fields.

The fog floated over the fields.

We woke up to a world of fog this morning.

In 4A we are trying to use as much description in our writing as we can. We began the day by thinking about imagery and then we ventured out into the fog!

Starting With A Sizzle – Sizzling Starts

Sizzling starts are taking over 4A’s writing!

We have been investigating the creative ways we can start our writing.

We found out we can create a sizzling start by using:

  • onomatopoeia
  • dialogue
  • humour
  • alliteration
  • a question
  • a surprising fact
  • something unexpected

We have been also looking at how other writers create sizzling starts.

The pictures below show some of the best we found.

Have you found an author who uses sizzling starts? 

Have you found an example of a creative sizzling start that really hooks the reader?
