Sizzling Starts


Posted by missdouglas | Posted in English | Posted on August 28, 2014

We have been learning to make our writing interesting by writing a ‘sizzling start’. Today we wrote about a beautiful Spring day because we are all excited about the season changing on Monday.

We know that sizzling starts make the reader want to keep reading.

Here are some of our amazing sizzling starts:

Sarah – The green grass is long. The flowers are beautiful. It is a nice Spring day.

Rhys – I’m in the flowers. The grass is a little bit yellow. The sun is up.

Maddison – I can hear the birds chirping. I can smell the roses.

Fletcher – The bright, green grass is soft. The sun is nice and shiny.

What do you think of our sizzling starts?
