Weekly Activity - Day 5 ( Bonus Activity )

Bonus Activity
It’s time to use your imagination to write a short story. I’ve provided you with three different beginnings for a story. Choose your favourite beginning and finish the story. What happens next? You can use your imagination and create any ending that you want. To earn full points, you must post, at least 8-10 sentences, on your blog.

My Beginning Sentence :
I knew it was going to be an unusual day when my mom came into my bedroom and said...

My Story:
Image result for family clipartI knew it was going to be an unusual day when my mom came into my bedroom and said you are going to spend your weekend at your aunt Suzie's house and you will be going to a very cool place you'd like. I Never liked going to Aunt Suzie's house because her kids, especially Charlie, he would always scare me in the night with his horrifying ghost stories. Even though I am 12, his stories still got to me and freaked me out. I tried to persuade mum but she didn't change her mind. It was 3:55 and mum was going to drop me off at 5:20 so I knew I had a lot of time to come up with the best mind changing reason to not go to aunt Suzie's house. First, I called my uncle Sione if I could sleep over his, but he was on night shift throughout the whole weekend. Second, I called my best friend Garry if I could stay over his house, but his house was full of relatives from out of town. The third time I thought of the best idea ever, My nana. Since Grandpa died, she stayed by herself. I was so happy because I always loved to going to nana's house because her chocolate brownies were the BEST. This time I whispered before I called nana " Third times the charm". I called nana and I said in a sad little voice " Hi nana how are you?" and nana said "Hi Stanley I'm good, What are you after I know that voice, cheeky" and I said " Would it be okay if I stayed over for the weekend", and she said " Sure absolutely". After talking with Nana, she said she would call my mum about this. I was very happy I wouldn't be staying at Aunt Suzie's house, Phew. It had come to the time to leave home for the weekend and go to nana's house. When we got in the car I reminded mum to call Aunt Suzie that  I wouldn't be coming and then mum said: "  Don't Worry". When we got to nana's house I saw another car similar to aunt Suzie's. Mum dropped me off and she couldn't get down to say hi because she had to go straight back home and pack. As soon as I walked in the door I saw Aunt Suzie. I said what are you doing here? and she said we were gonna come with you as soon as your mum dropped you off at our house but she didn't. I was kind of happy because I didn't see Charlie or any of his siblings. I walked into the kitchen happy until I saw CHARLIE........"NOOOOOOOO"


  1. Stanley - this is an amazing story. It is so engaging and interesting! I found myself smiling as I read it, particularly when you wrote that you love visiting your nana because her chocolate brownies are the best! My grandma used to make the best chocolate brownies as well. They were always so soft and delicious. She would often put extra chocolate chips in the batter just to give them extra chocolate flavour!

    I also laughed out loud when I read the last line of your story. It was so funny!! You are a great story teller.

    This activity post is a wonderful example of a story blog. Would you mind if I showed my colleagues (the people I work with) your blog? They will be impressed by the length and the great detail that you included!

    Keep up this awesome work, Stanley!

    Cheers, Rachel :)

    1. It would be great for you to share it with other people Rachael.
      Cheers ;)

  2. Hey Stanley

    Wow what a great and very interesting story.

    Keep up the good work!

  3. Wow!
    I've got to say that was a really interesting story. I can so relate to that. Maybe next time you should reread your writing to make sure it makes sense. Further than that great story!
    Keep up the great blogging!

    1. Thanks Saveu,
      I have checked for mistakes and make sure it makes sense. Thanks for your concern.

  4. Amazing Stanley,
    I loved your story it's so interesting! So detailed too! Outstanding Stanley Keep it up! Have a great holiday!

  5. Hi Stanley
    What a great story. I liked it and I found it interesting. Keep up the awesome work!

  6. Hey Stanley,

    What an amazing story! I wish I could write stories as good as this when I was 12... Actually, I wish I could write stories this good now! Your story is really well written, and I am super impressed that you went so far beyond the 8-10 sentences they asked for in the activity.

    I always think that Nana's baking is best. My Nana lives in Australia, but whenever she comes over she bakes something called Hungarian Caramel Cake. It's lots of thin layers of pastry with homemade caramel in between them and chocolate icing. It is my absolute favourite cake ever! It's funny how Nana's always know if we're after something though eh? You can't fool them.

    If you ever feel like adding another chapter to your incredible story, I know that Rachel, Mark and I would love to read some more. Especially now that Charlie has turned up... I hope he doesn't tell too many stories??

    Awesome way to end week one Stanley! I can't wait to see what you've written next.
