“How Can My Child Write a Model Composition?”
A composition can qualify as a model example if it meets the following requirements:
Good Control of Grammar
Firstly, writing with good grammar rules is a MUST. Good grammar is the first and most obvious requirement to even be considered for a model composition.
Your child must get his basic grammar rules correct. The three most important rules are – Subject-Verb Agreement, Tenses and Word Formation. (There are a lot more rules, but being able to focus on the 3 aforementioned rules should be adequate.)
The examiner will also assess if your child is able to join sentences together. Also, your child should know how to use the punctuation appropriately.
Expand Your Vocabulary and Use it Effectively
Next, your child cannot afford to have a limited vocabulary pool. Not having a wide vocabulary will hamper your child’s ability to write in an illustrative way for their composition.
Also, poor vocab will also result in stale, repetitive writing. This will bore readers and reflect badly on your child’s writing proficiency. A writer who knows how to wield the power of words can transform a mundane topic into one that captures the reader’s imagination.
Get Organised & Combine Your Ideas to Write a Great Story
Being organised is essential to qualify as a model composition. Your child must be able to write the story in a proper sequence. There should be no loopholes, and descriptions should not be jumbled up. Paragraphing plays an important role in organising a story. But the secret to being organised is simply – planning. ( An activity that the average writer neglects to perform.)
Explore Your Creativity
Finally, to achieve an exemplary composition status in a class full of high-level writers, your child must display creativity.
Being creative means your child must be able to come up with a plot that is not only unique, but also related to the topic.
Your child must be to draw unique references from the pictures given in order to write a creative compo. (Yes, there are lots of strategies to do so and they are covered in our flagship online courses – The Little Writers Master Class (for P3/P4) and the Creative Writing Master Class (for P5/P6).)
In a class where everyone has good grammar and good vocab, a compo with a unique story line will win hands down.
Furthermore, no examiner likes reading the same old plots again and again!
