Lesson 1

A fronted adverbial is a word, phrase or clause that is placed at the start of a sentence. They are used to tell the reader more about the action in the sentence such as how (manner), when (time) or where (place) something happens. A fronted adverbial is separated from the main clause with a comma.

 For example:

Like a speeding bullet, Superman flew through the sky.

Task

To find where the comma should go in each sentence and, using a coloured pen or pencil, add the comma to each one.

Then rewrite out each sentence on the lined paper provided so that the correct punctuation is in the right place.
