Writing

This week, I would like you to complete some activities around this picture:

The Author

Monday

Answer the following questions:

Who is the author and why has he written these books?
What type of books do you think they are?
Why is he worried about what people will think of them? Who is it that will read them?
Why is he so small/why are the books so big?
Why are butterflies carrying them?
Where do you think they have been written?
Who does the table belong to?

Tuesday

Design a front cover for one of the books. You’ll have to think hard about what the book might be about.

Wednesday

Write some sentences that use two adjectives before a noun. Remember to use a comma to separate the adjectives (because they are in a list).

e.g. The butterfly beat its bright, colourful wings.

Thursday

Make the following sentences even better (like we do when we edit and improve).

The butterfly flew up.
The books were heavy.
A man sat on the books

Friday

Write a story about the picture. Here is a starter for you.

They slowly began to lift of the table. The butterflies beat their delicate but powerful wings, a blur of orange, black, yellow and white as they heaved the bundle upwards.

Beneath their flapping wings was an important package. Trapped in a world od words, the author has slaved for many months over these books and he now reflected on what would become of them.

Would they be met with joy and laughter? Or, perhaps, sorrow and tears would be the outcome. Only time would tell…

When writing your story don’t forget to include the following:
