writing add

In the past weeks my writing group had to make a advertisement that will sell a small box .And this small box was not any box. Me a my buddy Katie made it a wishing box that can grant any wish in
 a click of a finger. But you must have it to wish for something it will not work if you dont have it in your hand. We sold it for the price of $10.00 .You can use this box no matter how old or young you are even if you cant talk yet. You just have to think and it will read your mind. And it comes in all different colours .Pretty cool ha. So buy this now before the sale ends it only lasts 24 hours so come
quick you dont want to miss out on this awesome box. Remember sale end i 24 hours. This box used to be $50  so get it now yeah thats right $50 now $10

it was me. i gasped for a second you killed my friend oh how dare you do that to my friend so i walked back home really really sad .before i went to sleep i was thinking of a revenge skill of mine to teach him a lesson the next day i came with the old fashion pie face joke i knocked on the door and bam! white was cream was all over his face i stopped for a second my brain went back two seconds ohh yeah! i remembered i heard a crack then i saw a black cloth so i lifted it up
and guess what it was humpty dumty .that whole time it was humpty dumpty the whole time i cant believe that he did that to me at least he actually play a good prank on me for once .then i told him dont say that you mite jinx it so then he said ok

Sport Start Sample

Sport Start Sample

In every Wednesday and Thursday we go out for sport start. We have been learning a few different games and we have recorded 2 videos. One video is about a game called gate ways and there are a lot of different cones set up with ether a small ball, a mini bean bag and a ring. First we get a buddy and go to a gate way then we throw the piece of equipment to each other 5 times. Then we move to another gate way

The second game is called rainbow strike and there are two teams, one team are fielders and the other team are the batters. Someone from the fielders team bowls and small ball and if the batter hits the ball into the first square they get 1 point, second square 2 points and the third square 3 points. They can get bonus points by running to the top corner of the court and you can run there and back as many times as you want before the ball gets back to the bowler.

evaluation i think i did a great job explaining the game

feedback feed faward: nice explaining i think you did a great job explaining the game Eli
