White Rabbit

Question time!

Who is the rabbit talking to?

What is it they are late for?

Where is the rabbit going?

Why is he wearing this strange outfit?

Where are they currently? Why is the floor chequered?

Why do you think he hates being late?

Do you find it useful to know the time?

How many times do you think you check the time every day?

Did people tell the time before watches were invented?

Perfect picture!

Can you draw where the rabbit might be going?

Story starter!

The White Rabbit held his gold pocket watch up, listening to the crisp, satisfying tick-tock as time hurried by. One of his long, white, fluffy ears twitched with the passing of every second.

“We’re going to be late!” he exclaimed loudly. He always hated being late.

“We’re late!” he repeated once again, this time placing the watch back in his hidden top pocket, dropping down to all fours and springing off across the ground.

“Follow me!”

Can you continue the story?

Sentence challenge!

Can you write a complex sentence containing a main clause and a subordinate clause?

Can you separate the clauses using a comma? Can you use one of the following conjunctions to link your clauses: but, or, yet, so?

e.g. He was desperate not to be late for the important occasion, yet he also didn’t want to run off and leave his companion.

Sick sentences!

These sentences need help to get better. Can you help? Could you add an adverb?

The rabbit was white. He held a watch. He was worried.
