Challenge:
Can you work out the 11 letter word?
These are harder because you can't just plonk them at the start of the sentence - you have to rearrange or add to the sentence.
The lanky, unkempt fellow stumbled down the alleyway.
Step 1: Identify the verb in the sentence.
Step 2: Move it to the front and add 'ing'.
Stumbling, the lanky, unkepmpt fellow down the alleyway.
Does this sentence make sense?
Step 3: You have to add in another verb!
Stumbling, the lanky, unkempt fellow down the alleyway.
* The sentence would actually sound better if you moved the whole of the last part to the start:
Try starting these sentences with 'ing' openers:
Stumbling down the alleyway, the lanky, unkempt fellow muttered under his breath.
Dont be afraid to play around with the sentence structure!

ING Opener Rules
1. The sentence must begin with an –ing word that shows action.

Example: Crying, the baby sucked her thumb.

2. There must be a COMMA after the –ing word or phrase.

Example: Smiling, the girl opened her present .

3. The word after the comma must be the person or thing doing the “-ing” word.

Example: Running to first base, the baseball player tripped over his shoelace.

4. The main verb then follows.

Example: Sighing, the mother wiped up the spill.
1) down the snowy hill, Sammy screamed with glee.

2) out of his way, we cheered him on.

3) ,
he trudged back up the hill.

5) I shivered.

6) It started to
get dark.
