We wrote earlier this year about two sentence stories. We're still getting some good writing from that and were intrigued by this Tweet we recently came across:
Today I went to gan's. She was ill. I brought buns. On arrival I saw a wolf. He pounced. Dad came in and cut the wolf in two, finding gran.— James (@Jimmy81doog) November 8, 2014
Of course! Write a story in 140 characters. Having previously written about Tweets in the classroom, we were impressed with this idea. So we gave it a go, and here's what some Year Five children came up with:
#LRRH140 Girl in woods. Meets wolf. Wolf runs to house. Wold eats gran. Pretends to be gran. Eats girl. Woodcutter comes. Kills wolf. Happy.
#LRRH140 I saw my grandchild. She was coming, but so was Wolfie. I hid in the cupboard. Luckily, my grandchild came in and saved me.
#LRRH140 Gran’s ill. I have to go to see her. I met wolf on the way. We chatted: I told him where gran lives. He went, ate her and then me.
Our Tweet sheet is available on Dropbox to download. Feel free to share more ideas below.
Also, anyone for homophone jokes in a Tweet?
