Here are some creative writing from the grade 4/5 class.
Premise: – What if you woke up in another country one day and no one could understand you? What would you do?
…If I woke up in another country and no one could understand my language, I would freak out. I would try in every possible way to get them to understand me. But if they still wouldn’t understand me, I would try to learn their language. If I failed to learn their language I guess I would be all by myself. I would have to play all by myself. I would have no one to teach me, I would have to try and teach myself, do each and every single thing by myself. But if I woke the next morning and found that I was dreaming I would pray! Kangwa
…If I were to wake up one morning and be in a different country and no one spoke English… I would learn sign language and find someone deaf who knew sign language and how to write. Then they could teach me their language. If that didn’t work I would teach people sign language and then I would be able to communicate with them. If that didn’t work I would get a plane back here and continue on with my wonderful fun-filled math life here? Melissa
