Who else lives there with him?

What do you think it’s like living in a forest?

What do these dogs get up to?

Where are their owners?

Who built their houses?

Perfect picture!

Can you draw a picture of the perfect house for a dog to live in? Think carefully about what it might have inside it.

Story starter!

Toby poked his large, shaggy head out of his front door and sniffed. He loved the smell of the forest, especially first thing in the morning. He could almost taste the fresh, leafy goodness on his slobbering tongue as he dangled it out of his yawning mouth.

He could hear a rustling noise coming from nearby; one of the others was awake. You see, Toby wasn’t the only dog that lived in the forest…

Sentence challenge!

Can you write a sentence that uses two adjectives before a noun? Can you use a comma to separate the adjectives (because they are in a list)?

e.g. He placed a large, shaggy paw on the muddy, leaf covered ground.

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help? Could you add an adverb?

The tree was big. It was covered in moss. There were leaves on the ground.
