Begin your writing here: Today I received a letter from the MHC (Mountain Heights Club). I read it and they wanted me to compete in their mountain climbing competition that they are hosting on thursday and it was tuesday so I had 2 days to practice.  Obviously I wasn’t professional at climbing mountains and I didn’t have gear for it so I went to the mall first and got the gear. After practicing for the last 2 days the time has come.

I drove to the location that they told me to go to and felt anxious. Once I  arrived at the place and I saw a guy waiting for me at the entrance. He helped me suit up and I got my gear ready. I saw multiple contestants at the entrance waiting to be called out. After we got called out we went to the beginning line and prepared. Once we were ready we saw this guy with a megaphone and he yelled “3,2,1 GOOO!” I ran as fast as I could and started climbing. As I was climbing I saw this photographer taking photos and videos  of me. I finally reached the finish line and I won!  The prize was 1K.

200 Word Challenge – Chronological Order (T4W1)

200 Word Challenge

The 200 Word Challenge is an opportunity to practice writing using just the right words. 200 Words might sound like a lot, but once you get going you’ll find yourself crossing that line easily, so be careful to only say what you NEED to.
(This whole thing is over 100 words already)

For Week One your challenge is to write a 200 word recount of a time you…

Tasted the best food you’ve ever tasted.

Remember! This week we have been learning about chronological order. Make sure you get the sequence of events in the right order.

Begin your writing here: Months ago I went to this buffet with my family in Bankstown, Australia. We were standing in line for ages, We finally got called out and went to our table.

I got a plate and picked spring rolls, pasta, steak and a bunch of more random food. I sat down and began eating. I ate some pasta first and it was delicious, especially with the alfredo sauce.

Second, I tried some of the steak, it was yum and juicy. After that I finally tried the spring rolls as I chewed down the spring rolls CRUNCH! I heard, it was so crispy and crunchy that I heard a sound. It was so scrumptious that I got more spring rolls! The spring rolls were warm, crispy, crunchy, and there were vegetables in it.

For dessert I saw this HUGE! chocolate fountain with chocolate drizzling down everywhere, I grabbed a skewer and stuck a marshmallow on it. I put my marshmallow on the chocolate fountain and put my marshmallow on the chocolate fountain and sprinkled it with chocolate sprinkles. I bit into it and it was absolutely AMAZING! The chocolate sprinkles made it even better.

I felt pleased and satisifed by the good food.
