Cold water

It was a warm sunny afternoon when my family camped by a river. Hot and sweaty we ran down to the calm eddy. I stepped in, the slimy rocks grabbed my feet pulling me in.  searching for air I clawed at the stones and hulled myself out.
lying snug in my sleeping bag with food in my tummy, I listened to mum read our book. "mum can you please read one more chapter" Kyla  and I pleaded. Mum said we weren't allowed to, so I lay back and listened  to the rushing waves beside me and fell asleep.

Zoom Out

You are invited to build on to the story by adding a comment. This means you need to zoom out of the image below with your who is holding the ice cream? What else might be in the picture if you zoomed out a bit? What might happen next?
Be sure to read others' comments first, and continue the story, by zooming out even further. We could build an amazing story. Give it a go!

So, here is the start of the story...

Nika's metaphor poem

We have been doing some writing in class,
 today we did metaphor poems.
This is my one.

Nika is a orange mini van getting dirty in mud.
Nika is a young mountain beech, reaching to the sky.
Nika is a tall freckled giraffe frolicking along grass planes.
Nika is a freshly built Bach in the native forests of New Zealand.
Nika is a camel back, draining out water.

Rabbit Island


                                     Rabbit   island

                                    I see kids clambering up trees and down banks. 
                                 Pretending to be ninjas. I hear giggling with excitement.
                                     The Yahoo of when the're jumping down from trees.
                                I feel energetic. I wonder if we will leave because of the rain?
