Jewellery Box

This week we've been looking at this short story beginning:



On Monday we looked at B.O.Y.S. sentences - with but, or, yet, so (thanks to Alan Peat). We finished off some sentences that Mr Gregg started. Here are some of our good ones:

B

NiamhHer mum was chatting away happily, but she wanted to go home.
ClaraHer mum was chatting away happily, but Elizabeth wanted to go.
Amelia Her mum was chatting away happily, but Elizabeth was looking at all the jewels.
VegaThis was the first time she had been in here, but she knew a lot about it.
AbigailThis was the first time she had been in here, but she already knew where things were.

O

IreneThis could be an ordinary day, or it could be a mysterious day.
JesseThis could be an ordinary day, or something unexpected could happen
LuisThe voice she heard could be her imagination, or maybe her ears had heard the truth.
FernandoThe voice she heard could be her imagination, or it could be a friend of hers calling her.

Y

Amelia The shop was full of wonderful jewellery, yet something felt wrong.
RozennThe shop was full of wonderful jewellery, yet was dirty and rusty.
IreneShe ought to be enjoying this, yet she heard whispering.
SanikaShe ought to be enjoying this, yet she was scared.

S

AkshSomething was calling her, so she followed the voice
Pablo Something was calling her, so she wondered around the shop to find the real voice of that person.
MimiShe knew something was about to happen, so she tried to stop paying attention to the jewels.
IreneShe knew something was about to happen, so she opened the lid.

On Tuesday, we created some 2Ad sentences. Here are some of our best:

MimiIt was a boring, predictable shopping trip.
Pablo It was a tedious , lame shopping trip.
JesseIt was a strange, spooky shop with a colorful, shiny box.
NiamhInside,it was a weird, creepy shop with a spooky, freaky shopkeeper. 

We're getting ready for a special, big writing session, with some interesting, exciting sentences!

  1. Salutations! I'm SB from New Jersey and the 3H Crew. It's really cool to be quadblogging with a class from Europe! I have always wanted to go to Europe, have you ever wanted to go to America? Welll, it's great here! Actually, it's amazing here! It must be so cool in Europe. Here's a question I want to ask you, have you ever seen the Eiffel Tower?
    Here is my B.O.Y.S sentence: This could be an ordinary day, or something unexpected could happen!

    1. Namaste! I have been to America! And also the Eiffel tower is really tall.
      I think it's quite cold in America! Is it? I hope you liked our B.O.Y.S sentences!

  4. Good Day! I'm a 3rd grader from New Jersey. I enjoyed the sentences.
    She knew something was about to happen, so she opened the lid. I wanted to try too. I heard a creak down the hall, so I went to check it out. Do you eat anything other than stinky cheese?
    Best wishes,

  6. Good day! I am a 3rd grade student in New Jersey. I really liked your B.O.Y.S sentences. I like the words you used so I tried writing a sentence. This could be an ordinary day or a really, really bad day because there is going to be a snowstorm. Now here are some questions: Do you watch the Winter Olympics? I am. Do you guys have a lot of snow? We're getting another snow storm tonight.

  8. Good day! I am a 3rd grader from New Jersey. I am in the 3H Crew. I like your amazing B.O.Y.S sentences They are very good. My sentences are: Her mum was chatting away happily, but she wanted to go back to their old home. The shop was full of jewelry, yet it didn't look right. Something was calling her, so she wondered around the room to find the friendly voice. What is the weather like there? Our weather is freezing and snowy. Have you been watching the Winter Olympics? If you have been, I hope you like them and their amazing acts.

    1. Bonjour IL!
      What a great comment, with great B.O.Y.S sentences!
      I like the Olympics because they do back flips when they do snowboarding, and they fly through the air and still manage to land on the floor.
      The weather is wet and cold here, but not snowy. It has been really really wet, but today it is sunny.
      Snow is awesome. We have snow only up in the Pyrenees, the mountains near to us.

  16. Bon jour! I am a third grader in New Jersey, in the USA. Great job thinking up all of those B.O.Y.S sentences. I tried to make a B.O.Y.S sentence and here it is: It could be an ordinary day, or a surprise could come any minute. I also have questions for you. Is your class doing a special project? My class has done the Global Monster Projects and are just starting the Landmark Games. It was cool writing comments for kids in France. Have a great day!

  19. Hi everyone from the 3H Crew! It's great to see you here, and so glad you had a go at the B.O.Y.S. sentences too! It's evening here in Europe of course, so my class aren't seeing this now (unless they're staying up much too late!) - but there'll see it tomorrow and we'll try to reply early next week.

  20. Good morning! I'm a student in the 3H Crew and my teacher is Ms. H. It is very cold out and we had snow for a week. What is it like in your town? I wonder if it is 112 degrees F? I really wish it was hot here in NJ. It is very close to Valentine's Day. I love Valentine's Day because it is my brother's birthday. He's turning eleven.
