Effective Writers Play with Words

The students in B4 are learning that effective 
writers play with words until their writing sounds 'just right'.
We've used a variety of mentor texts during the term and we've examined how the writers used words to add effect.

We read many of New Zealand author Lynley Dodd's books. 
She REALLY has fun with words!
One of our mentor texts

Another mentor text

We also read a piece of writing by a young New Zealand writer, in the Journal of Young People's Writing 2003.

Our third mentor text

What are some other things that writers do to make their writing effective?
What do you enjoy most about writing?
Can you describe for us how you eat your favourite food?
