We are doing the Student Blogging Challenge 2013
This is the fourth week and
this week’s Blogging Challenge’
gives us the ‘freedom to choose’
what we, 2nd Class, Room 6
want to write about.
You can read about this week’s challenge
This week we are asked
to use images in our post
and were advised how to install
and use Compfight
We had learned about Creative Commons
and we had heard a very interesting
story about a boy who got into bother when
he used a very ordinary picture
of a slice of pepperoni
so we are always very careful
about using images on this blog.
Mostly we use ones
we have made ourselves.
But when we have used other people’s
we have always used
Creative Commons and
are always careful to say
who the picture really belongs to.
Well the children in 2nd Class Room 6
really love writing.
When given the opportunity to write
about something they like to write about
of course they always write about
something they are very interested in.
For example here are two very different stories
written by students in 2nd Class Room 6
The first one is
by Zac Berry
Commander Rex was guarding his ship.
It seemed it would be a quiet day,
but then the Commander saw some enemy ships
heading for the sun.
There was a huge laser cannon
on the back of one of the ships.
That worried Commander Rex.
He guessed that the commanders
of the enemy ships planned
to use the cannon to shoot the sun
so they could control the whole world
and all the planets.
Commander Rex called his clone troopers
to board the enemy ships
and to shoot down any that tried to escape.
The enemy ships saw Commander Rex’s fleet coming
and they decided that
they would shoot them down first.
Then, Commander Rex called in
the star fighter torpedo cannons
to shoot down the enemy ships.
They succeeded in that mission.
Commander Rex went down to the prisoners
from the enemy ships to find out what
the enemby ship captains were up to.
He asked them to speak up and tell him
what they were doing.
No one confessed so Commander Rex
took them all prisoner
until he worked out what to do with them.
As they left the room an envelope
fell out of one of their pockets.
In the envelope was the whole plan.
It said that the protector droids
would come and shoot Commander Rex’s ship.
Luckily Commander Rex was alerted to this plan.
So the friendly airships were alerted also.
They came in and flattened the protecter droids.
And so ends another successful mission
by Commander Rex.
The second story is called
“The Magical Tree”
and it is by Nicole
Once on a magical day,
there was a girl called Holly.
She went for a walk in the magical forest.
She saw an enormous tree.
There was a small door,
small enough to fit a little girl like Holly .
She went for a closer look.
She leaned down to see the door and stumbled in.
She found herself in an old castle
as old as her Dad.
She met a girl and her name was Isobel.
Isobel gave Holly a tour of the castle.
Holly was not paying attention
and went through another door.
She found herself in a land of sweets.
She found lollipops, candycorn and popcorn trees.
Suddenly she saw a nutcracker.
He marched up to her and said
“What are you doing here?”
He locked her up in the dungeon of rotten sweets.
Suddenly she saw yet another door in the dungeon wall.
She heard a noise.
It was a dragon
“Help help!” said the dragon,
“What’s wrong?” said Holly.
“The Nutcracker locked me up in a cage.
The only way that you can get me out
is to get me the key from the windowsill”.
Holly got the key from the windowsill
and she unlocked the dragon.
They busted out with a huge lollipop
and knocked out the wicked Nutcracker
and put him in the dungeon.
After all their adventures,
they had a party to celebrate.
Using Compfight was quick and easy.
The pictures really brought
our stories to life.
It is good to have this new skill
