This week I am reflecting on one of my writing goals
IALT: Improve my writing by learning how to:
* use a variety of sentence starters
This week I have been focusing on how to write a drop-in clause
Here is an example of a drop-in clause
Mr Forman is our teacher.
He loves his red car.
Mr Forman, who is our teacher, loves his red car.
Mr Forman is the subject of the sentence.
We change ‘He’ to ‘who’
We place commas around the clause we ‘drop-in’
Here are two examples of a drop-in clause that I have created.
 The footballer, who played for the crusaders, was kicking the ball.
 The baby, who had bulging biceps, was crying extremely loud.
I rate my understanding level at 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
My confidence level with using these types of sentences independently in my writing is1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
