Memory Brainstorm

WALT: Recount a positive  memory or experience using descriptive language features: Adjectives, synonyms and similes.

I learned that on Easter Jesus sacrificed for our sins. Easter is important to me because, It is the most important festival, and the one celebrated with the greatest joy. The date of Easter changes each year, and many other festivals fix their dates by reference to Easter. (July 5, 2011.) Easter this year lands on March 27, a relatively early date but perfect timing for anyone who needs a sugar fix since crashing shortly after Valentine’s Day. Next year, April 16 marks the holiday.Easter moves around year-to-year and can hit anywhere between March 22 and April 25.Easter Monday, also known as Bright Monday, Renewal Monday, Wet Monday, is the Monday immediately after Easter Sunday. It is observed by many Christian groups, but primarily by the Eastern Orthodox traditions. For some, Easter Sunday is about the Easter Bunny, colorfully decorated Easter eggs, and Easter egg hunts

Here are the Easter years:
2016 – March 28 - Sunday
2017 – April 17 - Sunday
2018 – April 2 - Sunday
2019 – April 22 - Sunday
2020 – April 13 - Sunday

WALT: Use punctuations in our story.

The door with no number

   The Door With No Number!

On a blustering day. A prehistoric man named Dan went to a hotel and walked up to the front desk to check in. The woman at the desk gave him his keys and told him that on his way to his room, there was a door with no number, that was locked and no one was allowed in there. Especially no one should look inside the room under any “circumstances”. So he followed the instructions of the woman at the front desk, going straight to his room, and going to bed.

The next night his curiosity would not leave him alone about the room with no number on the door. He walked down the hall to the door and tried the handle. Sure enough it was locked. He bent down and looked through the wide keyhole. Cold air passed through and it, chilling his eyes. What he saw was a hotel bedroom, like his, and in the corner was a woman whose skin was completely white. She was leaning her head against the wall, facing away from the door. He stared in confusion for a while. He almost knocked on the door, out of curiosity, but decided not to.

This disinclination saved his life. He crept away from the door and walked back to his room. The next day, he returned to the door and looked through the wide keyhole. This time, all he saw was redness. He couldn't make anything out besides a distinct red colour, unmoving. Perhaps the inhabitants of the room had knew he was spying the night before, and had blocked the keyhole with something red.

At this point he decided to consult the woman at the front desk for more information! She sighed and said Did you look through the keyhole?” Dan told her that he had to and she said, Well I might as well tell you the story A long time ago, a man murdered his wife in the room, and her ghost haunts it. But these people were not ordinary. They were white all over, except for their eyes Which were red. So Dan never went to his room again, or even the locked room.

He didn't want to spend his whole night outside on the uncomfortable chairs, but he did it anyway. The next day he went for an 2 hour journey to look for another motel. He didn't bother to take his packages with him, because then he would be pulling and pulling and pulling the whole way there.

Malo E Lelei, I am going to tell you something about my culture. The culture i'm in is Tongan. I picked tongan because it's my pride and I love my culture. One thing I learned being a tongan is having faith in everyone and in what you do. Fiafia is one of the most important thing in tonga because it means showing pride, Protection, Love and Faith in our culture. In other culture you have everything but you mostly have love.

The Diving Competition

I learned that when you have a underwater breathing competition do not CHEAT. But here is one way you can cheat, by: When the victim goes under the water you go down then come back up again, but when you see he/her coming up then you go down and they won't know you cheated only if they can see underwater.

As I looked behind me, something began to move. When I turned it was gone, I saw it again I looked and it was a little girl. I ask her where she was going she said that she was lost. She told me her name was “Rosemary Stan”. I told her my name was “Isabella”. We were talking for a while, until she stood up and said that her mother “took her camping, It was time to go sleep but when she fell asleep her mum left. It was 7.00 in the morning she woke up and went to wake up her mum but when she went, she saw that her mother wasn’t there”. So she thought that she had to run and get help but the only person she saw was me. I felt sorry for her so I took her home with me and raised her as my own daughter, then after 2 weeks Rosemary got into school. She did really well in school.  Well growing up, Rosemary got pulled out of her class to see a visitor when she saw her visitor she said to herself that she knew who her visitor name was “Christina Stan”. Rosemary’s REAL mother she was surprised and stood there crying everyone saw it, and felt sorry for her. When Isabella arrived to school she stepped into Rosemary’s class Bella asked the teacher where rosemary was and the teacher said that she was gone to the office to see a visitor, so  bella went to the office and saw that Rosemary crying.
