Skipping with my cousins, I simply said, "Let's play another skipping game." After we finished, we went inside to look for something to eat. We were so hungry. After eating a wonderful meal, I was imagining four people skipping in the middle and one each on either side.
Later on, we went back outside to play dodge ball at the park which was the best game I played with my cousins.
After playing dodge ball, we stopped and went back home to play games on sky. We played scramble word. Playing sky games was cool.
As soon as we finished playing games my dad called me so we could go and pick up my mum. It was a fabulous day!
When I ripped the banana with my teeth, I felt like a crazy monkey chewing this yellow, horrible, skin. Once the skin was off, I was ready to eat the creamy, tasty banana. It was so fantastic that I drooled and stuffed the whole banana in my mouth.
On a bright, sun shiny day, my mother pulled my blanket off me, told me to get changed, and get into the car. So I did. I was so happy because every second Saturday, we have a healthy dinner which is lettuce with chow mein. For dessert we have chips, lollies, chocolate, and ice-cream. we call it "Sweet and Healthy Night."
When we arrived at Pak'n Save, my mum told me that I could get any sweet that I wanted. I chose to get some sour cream and chives chips instead.
Later on in the evening, my uncle gave me the Hannah Montanna movie because he knew that I liked Miley Cyrus. While we were watching the movie, we had some sweets.
A long time ago, villagers invented boats. They put their heads together and decided to make a raft.
They grabbed some logs and rope. Then they lined up the logs and tied the ropes around the middle and the two ends. They called it the raft, but they realized that the raft wasn't good enough so they invented a bark canoe.
The people ripped off thick pieces of bark and shaped it into a canoe and that's how it got the name bark canoe.
I was going sky diving and I was fine until I crashed into the middle of the Pacific Ocean. I was floating but I was not safe. Two hours later, I was hungry, thirsty, and tired.
During the night I was getting stung by jelly fish. I thought my life was going to end when I saw a shark...well I thought it was a dangerous shark. It was a log. I slept on it and it saved my life. I felt so lucky.
Finally in the distance, I saw a sailing boat. I called but they could not hear me. So I had to swim to them. When I reached them, they let me in and we sailed to shore.
Two weeks ago I went to my nana's house for her birthday. She was turning fifty five.
At my nana's, while I was waiting for the birthday to start, I went into the kitchen to look at the delicious cake that they were baking. The cake was heart shaped. When it was finished baking, my auntie said that I could help decorate it.
After that we had to wait for the rest of the family to get there. I couldn't wait to eat because I couldn't stand the smell of the food - it was too tempting. Finally my uncle arrived.
As soon as he came, everybody ran to the table. Then my cousin Tom, from Australia, said the prayer, "Thank you God for this glorious day that my nana turns 21 and make sure that everybody has a good time, in Jesus name, amen."
For dessert, we had cake and ice cream. The cake was delicious because of the melted chocolate running down the sides. It was so chocolately, I couldn't even finish it!
A while later, we had a dancing battle. I had to dance for my nana, along with my little brother T.J. and my big sister Lata. My dance battle was with my uncle's girlfrined. She burned me out. So then I learned my lesson...I know now not to mess with her!!
Before cars, trains, and buses, there were boats. Boats were very important for traveling on seas, rivers, streams, and lakes. Early boats were made from logs, wood, and bark.
The first boat that was made was called a raft. Rafts were made from many logs lashed together with rope. They were good for going on calm waters, but they were not so good for strong waters.
Another early boat was the bark canoe. People soon realized that they could make a boat from bark. The problem with it was that the sides kept on flopping in or out. So people put sticks, called spreaders, along the sides to hold them out.
Once there were two pirates, a captain, and a first mate. When they were at sea during sunset, they spotted a ship and decided to ambush it. as they got closer, the first mate realized that it was a group of ships and decided to sail back to land.
When they got there, they wanted to burgle the village. They decided to get cages from the ship and place them everywhere. As soon as they trapped most of the villagers, they took their jewels.
Later that evening, the Pirate Captain ordered, "Set the sail!" The friendly ship saw them and their captain decided to have a war. The pirates lost!!! Their ship was captured and the remaining crew were stuck in a dingy, pushed out to sea, and never heard from again.
An angry captain ordered his men to bury the loot because the ship got loose and floated away. Later on, the men built a raft and sailed away to find the missing ships. Finally after two days, they found their ships and sailed back to the other men.
The captain required the men to bury the loot of silver and gold because the ships had drifted out into the open sea. The crew buried the treasure on an uninhabited part of the island so no one could steal it and sell it. Building the raft out of tree logs, the captain sailed out to find his ship. Just before sunset, they found the ships and sailed back to load the treasure on board.
Angry because his boats were missing, Captain Drake took his anger out on the crew by bellowing at them to bury the treasure. He got some logs, found some vines, and started lashing them together to make a raft. Excited after discovering his ships, he sailed back and dug up his treasure and put it on board.
Commanding the men to bury the forbidden loot, he realized that he needed to locate his ships. While the men were burying the loot, the captain was busy building a raft to find his ships. He took some men with him and after all their hard work, they eventually found the ship. Digging up the loot, they carried it on board.
Realizing that the ship had drifted away, he commanded his crew to bury the gold and silver. Some of his mighty men chopped driftwood to build a strong raft so they could paddle out to find their ships. Digging out the treasure, they dragged it on to the ship.
Once again we have been re-crafting sentences within a given text of writing. We took sentences from a story about Pirate Frances Drake who had returned from robbing a mule train to find that his ships were missing.
"He ordered his men to bury the looted gold and silver. Then he made a raft, paddled out to find his ships, and brought them back. That night, his men dug up the treasure and put it on board."
