100 WC-Gumboots

Once upon a time, there lived a pair of gumboots. The left one was called Gary and the right, Greg. Gary and Greg both worked at a college called ' the-not-so-lovely school. Their job at the school was to kick naughty students bottoms whenever they were sent to detention. One day, the meanest pair of scissors in the school, (called Steve) was busted cutting Brittany the brush's 'hair'. As Steve entered, Greg's toes started to shiver. Gary was alarmed at this so he decided to kick Steve for him. But Steve dodged and threw the pair out the window. And guess where they landed?

Abandon Ship

100 WC

The violent storm was...

I sprint through the streets, hearing roaring and whistling together, making a powerful force. People skid across the pavement, trying to grab on to something stable. Tornados form here and there, creating a barbarous beast. The clouds get more and more murky, polluting the sky. The contaminated ocean froths so much, it becomes like a terrific avalanche. Horrendous sand storms scurry across abandon deserts, heading towards the rushing city. Meteors come crashing down, devouring landscapes and territory. Birds slice across the sky, trying to escape from the annihilated city. The violent storm is finally here. But will I survive?

Why Do Wolves Howl?

What: write an explanation on an animal
So What: teach the reader about this animal
Now What: add more detail
 Why Do Wolves Howl?

A wolf is very similar to a dog. In fact, the wolf is counted as a ‘wild dog’. Its scientific name is Canis Lupus. Wolves are pack hunters with a fearsome reputation. The Gray wolf is the largest member of the wolf family, with males averaging 43–45 kg (95–99 lb), and females weighing 36–38.5 kg (79–85 lb). It has a similar appearance and features to a German Shepherd or a Sled dog but has a larger head, narrower chest, longer legs, straighter tail and bigger paws. Its winter fur is long and bushy, and has a mottled gray colour, although some coats have a tinge of white, red, or brownish-black.

The wolves native habitats are North America, Eurasia, and North Africa. The wolves hunt, sleep, and defend in packs from as little as 2 to as large as 12. They hunt larger prey such as deer, moose and cattle. They also eat smaller animals, livestock, carrion and garbage. The gray wolf is an apex-predator, with only humans and tigers posing a serious threat to it.

Wolves howl to defend their territory and while fighting against another pack. They also use their howl to communicate to lost members of the pack to tell them to meet somewhere. Wolves use three different strategies to howl. Firstly, they do the main, long howl to communicate. Secondly, they make different lines/waves to make it sound like there are more wolves in the pack then there really is. Thirdly, they make their howl high pitched to make other packs retreat.

Although the fear of attacks against humans are wide spread, the majority of attacks have been on animals effected by rabies. Non-rabid wolves have attacked and yet killed people, mainly children from ages 1-5, but this is unusual because wolves are relatively few, live far away from people, and have been
taught to fear humans by hunters and shepherds.

Wolves tend to kill other ‘wild dog’ relatives such as coyotes and other wolf packs. This is known because the ‘Gray wolf’ is the most studied animal /mammal in the world. A lot of wolf packs or couples have been seen terrorising or even killing coyotes over food such as dead carcasses. This happens because coyotes forage on wolves kill. Some wolf packs have been spotted digging out coyotes dens and killing their pups or ever really eating them.

Male wolves usually mark their territory by spreading urine (in other words, pee on trees). When other packs come by that particular tree, they can smell it then wander of in the direction they came from, otherwise they fight (if they don’t have any pups, young, or old wolves) that will weigh them down.

As you can see, wolves are quite a vicious predator. You can go and see them in zoos or a trip to Eurasia, North America or North Africa.

Wonder Beach

What:  WALT use our senses (hearing, smell, touch, taste and sight) to describe our thoughts, experiences and feelings.

So What:  I learnt to use describing words in my writing to express what I am writing about,  This helps the reader to know what I am talking about and to feel like they are there.  

Now What:    Next time I need to make my story shorter so the reader doesn't have to read to much and in which case they may build up a fuzzy picture in their mind.

Here is my work:

I gaze at the waves, some small as ants, some taller then man. I listen to the the squawking seagulls and rocks rattling as the the strong current drags them in. I scent fish in the sea and the salty, sweet whiff coming with the waves. I frisk at the sand in between my toes like putting your feet in a tank of worms.
I dab the sea water off my face. It was wonderful.
