Wednesday Writing Challenge - Week 3 wb 4.05.20


This week we are looking at a new text, so before you start read the description and watch the book trailer to get an idea of what the book is about. 

*New Text* - Journey by Aaron Becker

A lonely girl draws a magic door on her bedroom wall and through it escapes into a world where wonder, adventure, and danger abound. Red marker in hand, she creates a boat, a balloon, and a flying carpet that carry her on a spectacular journey toward an uncertain destiny. Where will she go? What will she see?

 If you had a magic door, what would be behind it? Would there be unicorns, dragons, the seaside, giants or anything else you can imagine?


We would love for your to share your ideas. Draw a picture of what you can see through your door. There is a template you can use below. Write some key words and some sentences explaining what you can see.

Watch the video for a more detailed explanation.

If you were to step through your magical door and go on an adventure. 

What would you see? 

Where would you go? 


Write a story (a few sentences) telling us of your adventure, in your magical kingdom.


"Once upon a time......" 

"I went on a trip to a wood"

"I met a wizard and his cat" 

"I hid from a giant"
