Week 35 (21)
Jenny was out for her nightly walk. She had on a long pink dress with her hair up in a tight bun resting on top of her head. The night breeze was chilly so she had a shawl over her dress. She was about to turn back but then a young woman in a yellow nightgown ran up to her. “Which way to the shops?” she panted. “If you keep walking straight it should be right there.” Jenny responded. Then the young woman gave a spin on her heels. Little bits of dust flew up in the air. Jenny coughed.

The afternoon sun was beating down on my back. It was sinking beneath the ocean. Fish were jumping in and out of the water, big ones and small ones. Soon one fish was flying over me, little droplets of salty water fell to the ground. I didn’t realize they could fly! More and more flying fish came out of the water. It is night now and the fish keep coming. I closed my eyes and breathed in the salty air. A fish fell right on my head! I jumped and screamed. The fish that fell on my head was dead.

My book felt like it took me to a whole new world. My book was about a mermaid swimming to a deep, dark ocean. I was focusing on my book when, a flash of light, then, darkness. I grab my blankets on my bed. No words, no pictures, no nothing. I thought my eyes were closed, but they were not. Darkness explodes in the air. I let go of the blankets. I was in my book! I had a thin sparkling tail. I swam to a rock and hid behind it. There she was, Echo, swimming to the dark ocean.

Week 31 (21)

The rain tapped on the roof. I looked out the window with a wistful glance when I felt the sun beating on my back. I heard the last raindrop. I grabbed my rainboots and dashed out the door. The wet grass slushed underneath my feet. I stopped in my tracks and bent down because there was an oar with a gory mushroom on it. I wrinkled my nose. There was one rule in our family: NEVER TOUCH MUSHROOMS. I never understood it but I picked the mushroom anyway. Then I did not feel so well. Now I understand the rule.Week 30 (21)

Me and my class were working on science when the heater turned off. I looked at it and went back to work. Then the lights flickered, twitched and buzzed. BOOM! Suddenly, darkness enveloped in the room. Me and my friends panicked. The loud speaker said “We are having a shelter in place. Repeat we are having a shelter in place.” In my head I thought, “What in the world is a shelter in place?'' My class crammed out in the hallway. The hallway was a silent darkness. 5, 6 and 7 graders pushing, shoving, cursing and yelling at each other.
Week 29 (21)

I shifted my shoes on my feet before I left the house. I looked and looked for Maple Leaf Street. Finally I found it! It was a narrow, twisted road with a few pot holes here and there. I began to pick up speed. I looked left and right. “Ahhhh, house number 29” I snickered. I walked onto the front porch and rang the old doorbell. The ground started to move underneath me. I was not surprised when the ground split open into a slide! Down, down, down I went and landed feet first into an old creepy science lab.

Week 28 (21)
Adventures About Finding a Dog 

I was walking home from school when I spotted a dog. It looked like it had not eaten for a long time. The dog looked up at me as it let out a pitiful howl. I scooped it up with my arms and brought it home. I asked my mother if we can keep her and she said yes. It was the happiest day of my life. She was a Labrador Retriever with yellow fur and blue eyes. I named her Daisy because when I found her she was lying down by a wild daisy.

Week 27 (21)
At the zoo a happy elephant is playing with a purple painted violin. I wondered how the violin got in there? Then an elephant stepped on it! The purple painted violin shattered in pieces.
         Then a little girl yelled “Oh no, my beautiful violin!” Well I guess we found the owner. I got halfway around the elephant exhibit when I saw the little girl that dropped her purple painted violin. She was sitting on the ground crying. I felt so bad for her. I sat down on the ground next to her and she looked up at me and smiled.

The Long Kindness Chain

A ladder hit a wall of big red bricks. I jumped. A few coins fell out of his bucket. “Excuse me Mr. Ladder, you dropped some coins.” I yelled up to him. “Keep them” He yelled back down. I walked by a sad homeless man. Up ahead was a small store. I ran to the store and bought a bottle of water for him with the coins that man gave to me. Without a word I gave him the bottle of water. Then me and the homeless man help a sinking person out of wet pavement. 

Week 26 (21)
I asked for something special on my birthday this year called Marmite. Marmite is a yeasty and salty spread. My Grandma said she would buy me some. When she came home, I ran to her and grabbed the jar out of her hand. “No,” I said, “I like marmite not jam.” My Grandma jumped back in the car and came home with peanut butter. “Grandma, I like marmite not peanut butter.” Then she jumped in the car and went back to the store again. When she came home, in her hand was Marmite. My mouth watered for that gooey goodness.

Week 24 (21)


Which one spoke first?
Spy Red or Agent Orange?
Tangy Yellow or Vibrant Green?
Thunder Blue or Creepy Purple?
Can colors even talk?
Do they have mouths to talk? 
Do they have a tongue to talk?
Is there a language for them?
I thought and thought about the talking colors.
Then it came to me,
The orange one spoke first!
He whispered in a dangerous tone
 “When the clock strikes three minutes after midnight it is tea time.”
My brain stopped hurting,
I felt relief for myself.
Everything made sense.
They do have a tongue! 

Week 23 (21) To comment, scroll all the way to the bottom of this page.

You can feel happy like a big balloon floating in the air or you can feel sad like jumping in a brown dark muddy puddle and the rain fills your boots to the rim. Sometimes you may have kicked a rock far, far away from being mad. Frightening things can happen and you can be scared or you never have feelings. You sit there with no hope, no happiness, no nothing. The black inky darkness takes over, light cannot shine through. You should not feel like this, feelings should be seen. Bright sunlight should shine bright as can be.

Week 22 (21)
“… ,but where did it go?” she shouted…
Seeing Nothing

My sister went blind a long time ago. I remember us playing with a ball. ¨Claire, are you going to go get the ball?¨ I yelled across the yard. ¨The world, but where did it go?” She shouted. I ran to her as fast as I could. My heart and mind were racing. ¨What do you see?¨ I asked ¨Nothing, the world is dark.¨ She yelled not knowing that I was next to her. ¨Ok, let's go inside.¨ I said unsteady. I slowly helped her into the house with my heart racing with fear.

Week 20 (21)

The sun was bright that day and the roads were quiet. I was walking on the sidewalk when I saw something yellow stuck to the light poll. I picked up my speed. I walked faster and faster until I was running. Soon I was close enough to see a shape. Is that a bike? I thought. It WAS a bike, tied tightly to a pole. On the other side of the pole was a little girl. This must be her bike. I wondered. Then I remembered something. I had a pocket knife with me and I cut the bike free...

Week 19 (21)

Tonight I am entering in the Powder Puff Derby. I walked up to the doors with my heart racing. It was time. I cracked my knuckles and walked right in. I placed my purple homemade wooden car on the track. BEEP! There is the buzzer. The race has started. I was hoping my car would go on it’s own but it just sat there. When it just wouldn't take off, I gave it a little push, it went right past the other cars and zoomed into the finish line. I cheered when my car got first place. Best day ever.

Week 18 (21)
Not Getting It Today

I wanted that yellow bicycle. I walked into the store greedily wanting that bike knowing that I had a bike already. My dad warned me that it would cost a lot of money. I picked up the price tag and looked at it with a frown climbing on to my face. This is how much it was $550. 

That evening I asked my parents about it, but they just said no. They said I did not have the money for it. My heart was broken. They are supposed to pay for it! I was not happy.

Week 17 (21)
Stepped On It

Me and my family love to go on hikes. The sites, the tree and the challenges. Any kind of hike we will love. Mountains, trails, muddy trail/mountains and rivers. 

One of the trails we went on we would never forget…

It was a cold day for a hike but that meant that there would not be a lot of bugs. We soon saw a funny looking tree. I went to step on it’s route. CRUNCH! I step on it. Then the tree picked me up off the ground and said “I would love a new friend!”

Feather Hat 

I went shopping in town this weekend with my Aunt. I found a hat with a big blue feather sticking out of it. “I want that,” I said. I want to wear it to school the next day. 

That night I picked out a long pink dress with a blue sweater. Climbed into my bed dreaming of what everyone would say.

I walked into the cafeteria and everything stopped and I ran because I know that nobody liked it. Out the door and around the corner all the way home. Tears rolled down my face.


Week 15 (21)
Masks and Covid-19

We have to wear masks. Are you asking what masks are? Well they are itchy, tight and hard to breath in. The only fun part is having fun patterns on your masks. You will never want to wear them, but hopefully you will never have to worry about wearing them.

  Now are you wondering why we have to wear masks?  Well it is covid-19, the deadly virus. They say if we wear masks it will help covid from spreading. Hopefully in 2021, the new year we will not have to wear masks again. Here we come 2021.

Week 14 (21)
I was going to a dance that night. My mom went shopping for my dress that evening. When she came back it was the ugliest thing I ever saw! It had green flowers on the sleeves of the red gown that touched the floor. The hem was made of lace that tickled my arms and neck. I stood there in shock and did not say anything. When I got there everyone looked at me when I entered. I ran out just before my car left. My dad saw me crying and stopped. I jumped in but did not say anything.

Week 13 (21)
I walked out of my room from watching a show. CLICK! I turned the light off because if I left them on my dad would yell at me. From down stairs I could hear my mom playing  music. “Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!” When I was walking down the stairs my mom asked “can you get a roll of paper towels from your bathroom?”. I replied “sure”. I walked up the stairs and my lamp was on my bedroom floor. I didn’t remember putting it on my floor! I ran and got the roll of paper towels.

Week 11 (21)  To comment, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page.

I was rolling down the hill in a big pile of leaves. Then I stop. The world was moving but I was not. My eyes closed, I felt heavy and light at the same time. Then I was in a new world. I was in new clothing. I was wearing a long pink dress with a big bow in the back. “Eww, what am I wearing?” I said. I saw a path that looked like it had no end. So I went. After a few hours I reached the end and saw a crafty white castle with five chartreuse doors.

Week 10 (21)
I was walking down the street with cars squished between the big bold sidewalk. My lucky key chain jingled in my hands. It was a monkey holding a glitter banana and it had a little pink flower tucked behind its ear. “What in the world is that thing?” a boy from my class asked while approaching me. Then he snatched it out of my hands to get a closer look. “It is my lucky key chain. I bring it everywhere” I replied.  If only it was a bit smaller so he would not see it I thought to myself.

Week 9 (21) To comment, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page.
The big bees were flying south for the winter. The queen was in her traveling chair being carried  by other worker bees. She had a long gold dress that touched the floor, a big gold crown that fit her head and gold wings that did not fly. No one knows why she cannot fly. The only things that she can do is eat, sleep and talk. For a queen she is very lazy. Then all of the bees started to land. “Where are we going?” the queen asked. 
“Don't you remember? We are going somewhere new,” her handy helper replied.

Week 8 (21)

Jennavieve is swimming a 25 freestyle. She tries to stay calm. “PLEASE CLIMB UP ONTO THE BLOCK,” the starter said over the loudspeaker. She got on the block.“TAKE YOUR MARK, BEEP!” The race started. She pushed herself off the block and made a big splash into the pool. The cold water grabbed her skin. It made her swim faster and faster. She was half way there when she passed her friend Ria. A big smile spread across her face as she touched the wall with a big BANG! Exhausted and breathing hard, she simply raised her fists in excitement.
Week 7 (21)

Fluffy Bunny

I was riding my scooter on the concrete sidewalk when I saw a lady walking her white fluffy bunny! It had a red collar and leash. She danced as she approached me and asked if I wanted to pet her bunny because I was staring at her. I stood there in surprise, did not respond and ran away quickly.

It was the next day and I was riding my scooter and I saw the same lady walking her bunny! She asked the same thing but today I said “I would love to! What is his or her name?”
Week 6 (21)

I was walking down a dark hallway with my friend and then I remembered I had to drop off my cello. “See you in the first class. I have to drop off my cello,” I said to her walking in the other direction. “Ok!” she responded very quickly. I ran down the hall and I saw a jar on the floor that was not clear. I stopped so quickly that my shoes screeched. “Oops,” I said. I was afraid to open the jar but I had to see what was inside. There was a big hairy spider in the jar.

Week 5 (21)


Me, my mom and dad were going to visit a history museum. I have never been to a history museum before. There were many cool facts and things to see. We came across a sculpture of men standing by a cannon looking like they are going to fire it. I studied each man and what they were doing. The one I studied very closely was the man reaching down to get a white object. I wondered what it was. The sign said there were many different battles and a lot of people were killed. I had a great time.

Week 4(21)


One day I was very very late for violin class. I decided to take a short cut. I walked through the woods. Tripped on a rock and fell in the green, prickly vines. I was all bruised up. I got up and went to violin class. My violin teacher saw me and ran over. “Are you all right?” She asked. “No.” I replied. She sent me over to the waiting room and went to call my mom. “What will my mom say?” She thought. My mom came in and talked to me. She was not mad.

week 3


My best friend wants to start a club after school. She asked the school if she could use a class room. The school said yes. When she asked me to join I knew it was a bad idea. They should have never said yes. I did not want to hurt my friend’s feelings so I said yes. Started only a few days ago. I ran home to tell my mom and dad. They thought it was nice of them to let her use a class room. The club is about spying… that is worrying me. What will I do?


  1. I like how you made your character go into the shortcut and get all bruised it is very creative and gives a lot of detail ~Lizzie

  2. I think you did a really good job on your week 4 I really liked it.

    -from natalia ortiz

  3. the story about spying is pulling me in. maybe do more sometime?!
    -Katherine Mae Trimarchi

  4. Hi Gennavieve,
    I enjoyed reading your story. Well done.
    I liked how you approached the Week 5 prompt. I love history and sculptures like this get us to ask questions. I had to go back and look at the photo again. I wonder what that white object was?
    Good work this week.
    Keep writing.

    Mrs Boyce (Team 100WC)

    1. Thank you. Is your name Cork? I would love to read your stories.
      -Jennavieve From Ges@FMS

    2. Hi Jennavieve, I'm only seeing your question now. Ireland is divided into 32 regions and each region is called a county. The county I live and teach in is County Cork.

  5. Jennavieve,
    Cork is the name of a city in Ireland. Mrs. Boyce included the name of her city in her comment so you could tell where she works. It is the same when we sign our notes from Guilderland, NY, USA
    Mrs. G.

  6. I thought your week 5 writing piece was really good. I loved too how it was about history.

    - Natalia

  7. I loved your week 9 story! I loved the details,I could picture in my mind. 1 of the details I LOVED was "She had a long gold dress that touched the floor." It was also very cerative,Like when you said "and wings that could not fly.No one new why they could not fly." I liked How cerative and how many details were in your story. ~Soleil Dupuis

  8. I really enjoyed your story! I wonder what happens to the character next. Will she enter the castle? Did she travel through time? So interesting! Well done!

  9. I loved your story! Your week 11 one. It was interesting.But VERY funny. I like the part were it said "The world was moving but I was not." It was very crative. I love haw you decribed the pink dress. If you dont remeber it was this part! "I was wering a long pink dress with a big bow on the back." It was very desiptive. I also like the part were it said "After a wa few hours I reched the end and saw a huge crafty wight castle with five chartreuse doors." It was incheresting. I loved your story! Keep up the GREAT work.

  10. #Week11 I like how you linked the rolling with entering a different world. I think you used some really good descriptions too. This helped to engage me as a reader. Well done. (Cath, Team100, Melbourne, Australia)

  11. I know everyone said it but your week 11 was really great I loved that part when it said " the world was moving but I was not" that was funny Keep up the great the work.

    - Natalia

  12. Hi Jennavieve! Week 14 was so true, I would have cried and ran out of the dance, if I were you I would have just found another dress :D! The story was great and the story made me feel like you and if I would have had to go to a dance with an ugly dress. Great job! ~Lizzie :D

  13. I really liked your week 14 I thought it was great story. I like how you made it about a dress you didn't really like
    - Natalia

  14. I'm so glad you are going to write more of this story, the ending was so heart-breaking in relation to the joy of finding the perfect hat and deciding what to wear with it the night before. I know not every story has a happy ending, but I hope this one does.

  15. Week 16
    Hello again Gennavieve,
    Once again I enjoyed reading your story. Well done.
    I believe that we should wear what we like and not be too concerned about what others think.
    I think the hat with the blue feather sounds amazing.
    Good work this week.

    Happy New Year to you and your classmates.
    Keep writing in 2021

    Mrs Boyce (Team 100WC)

  16. Hi !!
    Well done on your story it is epic .
    Suzanna Sara Cherian EPIC ! I LOVE IT A LOT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Hi Jennavieve,
    I read your week 19 story, and your description words were perfect! I loved how you used describing words in the beginning like when you said you walked up to the doors with your heart racing.
    Keep up the awesome writing.

    -Gemma Sela,😁

  18. I like you week 19. I like it because It was a car race and all you had to do was push it and you won. I also like it because at the end you said it was the best day ever, like you were telling a story. Keep up the good work,

  19. Hi Jennavieve,

    I enjoyed your story about the bike (Week 20), although I'm very curious about who the little girl was and if it really was her bike. If so, why was it tied to the tree and who tied it there?

    Well done,
    Michelle, Team 100wc,
    Melbourne, Australia

  20. Fern Tan (Team 100WC)February 17, 2021 at 12:01 PM

    Hi Jennavieve! I like that you described what the road was like in the first line, as it helps set the scene. I do wonder what the narrator was cutting the bike free for. Was it to help the girl?
    Keep writing!

  21. Hi Jennavieve, your 100 word challenge is amazing. i liked how you used emotion. I liked it when you said "I slowly helped her into the house with my heart racing with fear."
    Lena Noel Pierle

  22. Hi Jennavieve,
    Your 100 word challenge week 22 was very intense. Your story was very well described and your story was very realistic. I would have been scared if I knew that my sister was blind and couldn't see. Very nice job! :D

  23. Amazing I loved your newest story about going blind it was amazing how you can make a great story out of an 100 words

  24. Week 23

    Hello again Jennavieve,
    I enjoyed reading your story about FEELINGS. Well done.
    I liked how you listed all the different types of feelings we can have.
    I think it's important to remember that it's ok not to feel happy all the time.
    In Ireland we are doing remote learning and teaching and lots of the children ...and teachers... are unhappy because they want to be back in school. Hopefully this will happen for us very soon.
    Good work this week.
    Keep writing.

    Mrs Boyce (Team 100WC)

  25. HI! I loved your week 23! I love this part "you can feel sad like jumping in a brown dark muddy puddle and the rain fills your boots to the rim." I love that one and i love all of them! I love how you said all of them like the happy one! Keep up the great work Jenna!
