Winter Learning Journey - Day 5 Activity 1

For this activity I have to pretend that I got lost in a forest all by myself. I have to write a short story (8-10 sentences) about what might happen next.

It was a beautiful day with the sun shining bright. I was enjoying the wonderful view of the beautiful forest when I realized that I have wandered off by myself. Desperately trying to find help. I started to call out. I was shouting as loud as a lions roar. Only having a bottle of water and an apple, it will be really hard to find some food and water. I couldn't go much further so I decided to have a nap. An hour later I was woken up from a strong noise not far away. I got up to find out what it was. It was the rest of my group looking for me and that was my most happiest moment of my life.

  5. Hi AJ!

    I have noticed that you have been really involved in the Winter Learning Journey which is great to see. Thank you for your comments on your peers blogs too, they are always helpful!

    My favourite part of your story is the simile you used - "I was shouting as loud as a lions roar." When I read this, it painted a picture in my head of someone being lost in a forest and roaring for help. It shows your sense of desperation to be found again!

    Thank you Sa Kae, Zahra and Ofa for your kind words to AJ. I'm sure he will find them very helpful and encouraging as he continues in his activities. It's great to see your positive contribution to your peers work. Keep it up!

    I look forward to reading more of your blog AJ as you work on completing the activities. Well done on your blogging so far!

  6. Hello AJ
    What a great story! I really like your story. It has similes, adjectives and proper punctuation. There's only one tiny mistake though. You wrote of by myself - it's supposed to be off by myself. Keep up the awesome work!

    1. Thanks Daniel for pointing that out. I will fix the mistake.

  7. Hello AJ,
    I have read through your short story and it sounds brilliant. It has one of the figurative language which is a simile. It's really sensitive but you need to proof check before publishing.
    Great work.

  8. Hi AJ,
    Your short story is amazing. I like how you used a simile. The sentence I like is An hour later I was woken up from a strange noise not far away.
    Amazing Work.
