    Introducing this poster as ‘for young children using simpler language’ can be misleading. Often it is this language that upper primary students can use comfortably in drafts before perhaps browsing a thesaurus to locate more sophisticated language. I recommend this poster for Years 3 – 6.

    This is downloading as a JPEG and at a low quality. It also has the “teach starter” copyright watermark across the page
