- Using Talk for Writing techniques, children can learn the patterns of the text and innovate/invent their own sentences from these.
- Discussing the fronted adverbials will also help children understand this grammatical feature. For example, is the adverbial position filled with one phrase, more than one phrase, or a clause?
- In some sentences, there is subject-verb inversion after the fronted adverbial and children could use this pattern for a more literary style. This structure can be used when the subject is a noun (not a pronoun) and there is an initial place adverbial (position or direction).
I would not discuss sentence structure beyond points 2 and 3 above, since many of the sentences have lengthy, sophisticated constructions and there is no need to understand how these are put together to appreciate the beauty of the language.
