Week 24 Yeow!

Imagine you have gotten a tiny splinter while climbing over your neighbor’s fence. Write a very exaggerated story to explain to how you became “injured”. Remember to use strong verbs, as well as hyperbole.

As always,
  • Write your story in a word program first.
  • Reread aloud to make sure it makes sense.
  • Revise it to include descriptive words that paint a picture for the reader.
  • Check it over for spelling, punctuation and capitalization errors.
  • Then copy it and paste it in the comments section.
  • Be sure to include your first name and code to receive credit for your work.

Watch this space for a sample story coming soon...
