A Child of Books

Still image for this video
You can watch the video of the book so far:

After, write sentences about the adventures of the girl in 'A Child of Books' with a selection (you don't need to use them all) of the homophones below. Underline the homophones you have used in the sentences.

 

 

Here are my examples:

 

Bravely, the girl sailed at 100 knots on her boat and the weather was delightful.

 

The girl hurt her heel when scrambling the monumentous mountain.

 

With great excitement, the girl swiftly sailed across the sea so that she could see her best friend.

 

Their next adventure could take them anywhere.

 

I encourage you to use a variety of sentence openers including fronted adverbials and subordinating conjunctions: although, because, if, when.

 

Challenge: can you think of any other homophones?
