Makayla wanted to type her story like a real book, all on her own. If you like her story please leave her a comment.
On a sunny day there was a family of four that was going camping in a leafy forest. Suddenly they saw a broken bridge that leads they’re way to their camping spot. Sadly, now they can't go camping. Then one of the daughters saw the sign saying ‘Do not go here there are snakes!’ Then she ran to tell her family. They ran quickly because they were scared, and they were saying “Argh”. The family said we are never going camping again!
Room 7 have been learning how to recraft their work. They wrote a piece of writing completely independently then worked with a friend to make it even better. They added lots more details and punctuation. They then had to draw a picture to match their own story. And lastly they have shared it with our lovely audience - YOU! If you like their stories please leave them a comment.
