100wc week #19 the flame flickered then went out

100wc

My goal in this 100wc is to use descriptive adjectives.

I crouched as I walked through the old mansion. My heart was beating fast. My breath was so quick that felt as though I had a rock up my throat. I slowly walked forwards clutching onto the cold, metal, lantern that I held onto for my life. A gush of wind came through making the flame of my candle flicker. I took only two more steps and then came the last burst of wind that made the flame of the candle flicker and then go out. I was in the dark.

100wc (not homework) I GOT THIS HAT!

I traveled around Paris, staring at the Eiffel Tower  with awe! One night I took the metro with my owner and her family. I hoped I wouldn’t fall off. Later, we went for ice-cream, it looked really yum since it was in a flower shape. Too bad I don’t have a mouth….. The next day my owner woke up, and put me on! I was in the opera house that day, but not for long. Soon enough I ended up in my owners bag, I mean seriously!! I ended up in the baggage area. Later that night the wind blew roughly and I fell, into a dirty, wet, puddle….

100WC week #18 Silence Orange Thunder Pyjamas Swam

My goal for this 100wc is to try to use descriptive and engaging  but short sentences.

100WC

My house was silent except for the dripping of the kitchen tap. I looked out of the windows and saw the massive thunderclouds building up. I turned on the TV and a five minutes later I heard loud thunder.

“Honey, I’m home,” My mum said as she came in through the front door.

“Hey mum,”

“Do you want some orange? I just bought some.”

“No, I’m okay.” Time passed and now it was 8:30 I slipped on my pyjamas and settled down to read. By 9:30 I had drifted off thinking of how I swam in the big, blue ocean just this morning.

This BTN was informing people about democracy and what it is.  The ancient Greeks made up democracy. Democracy comes from the Greek word demos = people. And kratos= power or rule. What year did democracy start? In Australia we have a democracy called REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY. Is there a specific Greek that came up with democracy?

My goal in this 100wc is to use suspense

I reached up to the sky as far as I could without falling off the steel ladder.

” Don’t fall, don’t fall, don’t fall ” I muttered under my breath with toes almost sliding off the top of the ladder.

” Winter come get to sleep, ” My mum yelled from inside ” You can do whatever you want to tomorrow. ”

” Fine.” I walked to my bed and before I went to sleep I said: ” I will get to that ladder…….”

The next day I was once again standing on top of the steel  ladder, I reached up and felt my hands grip  the first step…….

100wc week 16 SUDDENLY!

” So Lilly,” my Rose said to me, ” Truth or Dare?”
I thought about that for a while, ” DARE!” I decided
” Ok I dare you to… go into the basement, WITHOUT any lights on and open up the closet!”
“WHAT!! NO!!” The last time me and Rosie went in there a bunch of bats flew out at us….
” OK FINE!! But……. your coming with me.”
“Fine….” We slowly walked down the creaking steps to the basement, opened the door and went to the closet.
” I’m too scared!” I said. SUDDENLY the door slowly creaked open to find a beast staring at us with pupils like black holes…..

My goal for this 100wc is to include suspense and good vocab.

BTN- Free Range

Lots of people are happy to pay a little bit extra for free range eggs, because they think that they are kinder to chickens. Some farmers are really mean to their chickens. Not all farmers that sell free range eggs actually agree and follow the meaning of “FREE RANGE”.  Different farmers have their chickens running freely for different amounts of time. Sometimes farmers say that they produce free range eggs when sometimes they actually don’t. Why don’t all farmers sell free range eggs? Why aren’t all farmers nice to their chickens?
