Escape to Freedom

Louis has written a creative little story about a mischievous boy who enjoys swimming down at the Pt. England beach.  Hope you enjoy!

The sun wrapped the earth with it's warm tentacles. Little Tommy and his grandma were at the beach. Little Tommy had lots of hobbies but out of all of them he loved the beach. Unfortunately Tommy had to wait for 20 minutes after devouring an entire basket of food - man can he eat for a little six year old!! He couldn't wait any longer. He plotted to escape this terrible horror and be set free. Well, when his grandma was too busy sunbathing, Little Tommy had an opportunity to escape. Tiptoeing, Tommy sneaked away but knew that sooner or later his grandma would find out!

Mabel's Three Wishes

Sunshine shone through the windows into Mabel's eyes and awoke her from her deep sleep. It was time for her to get dressed and be off to the library. Mabel is a girl who loves books and wouldn't dare miss a second at the library.

Off went Mabel to the library. She was reaching for a book when suddenly smoke rose around her and a genie appeared before her. The genie granted her three wishes. Mabel was filled with joy in her heart but also sad because she didn't know what to wish for. Mabel thought and thought and then had an idea. Since she wasn't popular, she wished to be popular. Second of all, she wished that she was so pretty that people would fall in love with her as Mrs. Barks is falling in love with Tom Cruise.

The final wish was the last one she would ever have. She wished to be rich. So the wish came true. Her house was transformed into a gold house. It was the most special thing that happened to her. Mabel lived happily ever after.

Lily Learns To Swim

We had to write a story to go with a picture of children playing at a beach, and this is what Sean came up with. Pay close attention to the rich vocabulary he uses to describe things!!

On a hot, sunny day, kids were running like a flash into the water. The sand was soft like a puppy. Children were making beautiful sand castles with amazing, unbroken shells.

A girl named Lily was scared of the water. Her friend came along and asked, "Would you like me to teach you how to swim?" Lily replied, "Yes." Suddenly Lily knew how to swim and she was terrific at doing back-stroke!

Lily was like a marvelous mermaid zooming along the water Her parents were wowed that their daughter could swim. Lily and her parents thanked Lily's friend. She was no longer frightened of the water and she achieved her goal to swim.
