February Overseas

Sorry class!
I took the previous photos off our blog because I thought my brother had taken them, but he just told me that they were posted on a website by Zaragoza local council. I prefer to use more personal photos, so I changed them to these ones taken by my brother's friend Jose Luis Alonso. The bicycle one is by kmroddy. I hope you can still use them to write your stories.

By the way, have you read Olga's story? It's in comments. Read it and write a comment about it. I liked it a lot. It's got a nice twist at the end that gives integrity to the story and joins it back to the pictures.

Can you guess where these photos were taken?
Write a story inspired by them. You can use the brainstorming exercise we practised in class yesterday. Think of groups of words around what you see, think of people that could be in the story and think of a story line and of course ........... an ending.

Winter Drawings by OlgaA very long time ago in Moscow,Russia there was a little girl who had no parents. She lived wiht her uncle. Her name was Maria.

Every day she went by bicycle to school.It was far away, but the girl liked riding her bicycle. One winter's day she opened her eyes and looked from her window.

Outside the window it was white. She looked at the white trees, the white road and the white roofs of the houses.

That day Maria went on foot. She went past bencehs covered in snow. Her feet drowned in snow but the frosting air energetised her. When she got to school she looked beautiful. Her cheeks were pink and she felt happy.

After school Maria told her uncle about it and he proposed to draw a picture of the first snow. It a was nice idea! Maria took a pencil and so these pictures were born ...
