100 Word Challenge Week #19

Lobna in class 4B Has written this week’s story, using the words we were given: pink, bicycle, gorilla, laughed, grand…

« Saturday morning, I went to the zoo with my friends. It was a beautiful shiny day. I wanted to visit a Gorilla because I’ve never seen one before. So, I rode my bicycle to the gorilla cage. I laughed so hard when I saw my best friend trembling with fear while feeding the Gorilla. The guardian was so funny because he was wearing a pink gorilla shirt. Then, we took a lot of photos with most of the animals in the zoo like giraffes, dolphins, monkeys and even with lions .It was really a grand day at the zoo. »

6ème will be using prepositions to describe their bedroom,

5ème will be talking about summer camp and Indians,

4ème will be looking at the story of the Mayflower and American history,

3ème will be researching and talking about charities.

The 100 word Challenge

This will be obligatory for the 4ème this week, but anyone is welcome to join in.

Either send me your text or put it directly on the website 100wc.net

Last week there were 1,310 entries!

The prompt this week needs you to put these 5 words into your writing somewhere.


They can be in any order but all 5 must be there.

If you can use your IT skills to highlight them, it would really help your readers see that you have included them all.

That means your piece should be  about 105 words long.

In case you’re wondering about the picture, I went to a conference for English teachers this week in Thun, this is a photo of the castle and lake of this Swiss town.

Have a great week,




100 Word Challenge #18bis!

Again I couldn’t decide which story to enter in the 100 Word Challenge, so I’m entering two!

This one is by Eleazar in 3ème:

It was when I still was superintendent. I had been researching the teacher who killed all his class in primary school for more than 10 months. But I couldn’t give up for one reason : my daughter was in her class. I had seen her many times so I knew I would be able to recognize her. This day I was walking in a strange street. I can’t remember why. But when I saw this pair of pink ballet shoes I remembered one little but crucial thing: this teacher used to wear them. In fact they was her only pair of shoes. I immediately called the police and told them to send my men to this address. I looked carefully at this strange red wooden house. There was nothing in but a ladder. I decided to enter. The door wasn’t locked. I turned the handle. I entered. She was there …

100 Word Challenge #18

This week we were given a picture prompt  by 100 Word Challenge. I recieved some great work, here’s Nour’s:

Yesterday, my mom sent me grocery shopping because we were out of butter, and she needed butter for her lemon cake. So I went. At the store, I grabbed the butter along with a pack of chips really fast to come back faster but it was useless since the cashier took 3 hours to check out this stuff.
On the way back home I walked along the Meyer’s house. Maggie’s house.
We used to spend hours dressing up Barbies and arguing about who’d get to wear the rainbow puffy skirt (well, actually, whose Barbie’d get to wear the rainbow puffy skirt.)
But the past has passed.
I sighed and continued walking, the perspective of a good cake making me happy.
