Let's Start at the Beginning!

Let’s start at the beginning… Literally! Varying your sentences openers is a great way to keep the audience engaged.

Try verbalising an opener and drag out the end as a prompt for the students to finish the sentence for you. ‘ Finish my sentence. Later…‘ Once they finish your sentence, repeat the whole sentence back to celebrate.

YES! Later, we will have P.E with Mr Goff. 
Well done. 
Can anyone else come up with a different sentence starting with ‘Later‘?

After a few whole class examples, you can then say ‘The opener is… turn to your partner and each create a sentence with the new opener.’ 

We picked our favourites to share with you.
