Step into Writing is an invaluable reference guide and handbook for children developing their writing skills at senior level in primary school.
It has a clear and concise reference guide for grammar and punctuation which explains each concept plainly and includes relevant examples and many tips to correct usage and enhance writing style.
The handbook section of the book helps pupils develop their writing skills in many specific genres: narrative, recount, procedure, report, explanation, persuasion, discussion, response and a number of different poetry forms. For each genre a writing frame and checklist are included to support pupils through the writing process of planning, drafting, revising, editing and publishing, and to help children write with success. Finally, the book includes real examples of writing work from pupils around Ireland, to provide inspiration to budding writers!
