Free choices – Writing

Task description: Today for writing I did Free choices. It was really fun trying out new creative free choice tasks to do! I’m supposed to pick only 2 free choice tasks but I did 4 instead because I finished all my work. My first choice was if I could see one color for the rest of my life what would it be? My Second free choice task was what I would do if I won 2 million dollars. My third free choice was make a poem about something gross. My last free choice task was to pretend  you are stranded on a desert Island. Write a story about your experiences. Let me know if you guys would like a part 2 of pretend  you are stranded on a desert Island. Write a story about your experiences. 

My highlight was writing the story about what I would do if I won 2 million dollars. My lowlight was thinking of what tasks to do because they were all fantastic choices. Something I’ll work on next time is nothing, I think I did great this week. Please leave a positive comment on my blog. Thank you!

Swaimah – Vocabulary Swap


Task description: This week during Writing, I did a Vocabulary Swap. What we had to do was fill a table with 10 adjectives and/or verbs, then your friend ( Zaria was mine) and they will give you their 10 verbs and/or adjectives. We then had to make a story with those words and bold them. It was really fun to do because our stories came out good.

My highlight was making a story out of random words. My low light was that my friend hated the words she had but in the end she worked it out. Something for us to work on is trying to give harder words to each other. After that we completed the task, we posted it on our blog. I enjoyed this task very much, and I hope to do more like this soon. Hope you enjoyed. Please leave a comment; thank you for visiting my blog.

Suspenseful Writing

It was a nice sunny day in Afghanistan. The sun was bright and shiny over the houses. It smelt like fresh bread that came right out of the oven. There was a boy next to me named Adam. He moved his mouth and spoke to me. Adam had nice black straight hair, he was 1 inch taller than me and had nice green eyes. Adam was wondering where the fresh bread scent came from.“Hey there, Do you know where that bread scent is coming from?”. Adam asked me in a smooth way with some shivers. I replied “ No, no I don’t sorry”. We sat at a bench and got some cold drinks. 

We talked about how we might be related or if we have anything in common. We both like football a lot, and we also enjoyed cooking. Cooking is the best. We went to my house and made some chocolate chip cookies in the kitchen. My family really likes chocolate chip cookies. We then played some football at the field. We enjoyed our day a lot, I then asked him if he wanted a night over at my house. He said yeah sure why not, We went to sleep fast.

The next morning, Adam and I made breakfast for my family. We made some nice crunchy grilled cheese, waffles, pancakes and a sweet huge red velvet cake. We all had breakfast together as a big family. We were laughing and having so much fun. Adam looked like he was having a lot of fun too. We then went outside and played a game of hide and seek with Adam and my siblings. I was the seeker, I counted to 30 and went hunting for them. 

(Wind blowing) The leaves were flying all over the place, I saw someone run across my face. I was so frightened but, I still went to check if they were still there. I went to check and no one was there. I was scared at first until someone said my name. “Swaimah” Someone whispered. I was so scared that I screamed and ran away. As I was running away I heard footsteps behind me. When I went to look There was no one. Then Someone said “run now or I’ll kill you”. I didn’t run because I was tired and There was no one behind me. As I took a step forward,I screamed  “HELP ME” 

The End!!

Restoring Old Dolls

I worked at the doll factory that restored old dolls. One night as I was working late at 3am, I came across a strange doll. It has shiny golden locks and big glowy eyes that seemed to follow me as I moved around. And its red lips appeared to be hiding a smile. I carefully inspected for defects but couldn’t find any, it looked as good as new. So, I put it inside a box. Then began working on another doll. But all of a sudden, I noticed the glass fog up. 

My heart skipped a beat and my body became as hot as lava. Before I could do anything the light turned off. “Isabelle,” it whispered my name. “ I am alive, You can’t find me, You’ll soon be gone” She let out a mysterious laugh. I am really frightened and standing there like I’m frozen. I heard a clicking noise coming from the glass box, That I added the doll in. That was when I lost it and sprinted to the main door. As I tried to open the door it was locked! There was nowhere out. In front of me appeared that same doll with a wide grin on her face. 

“Hahaha, Now what are you going to do, You’re alone with me, Nowhere to get out” She screamed. I, WAS, FREAKING, OUT! I went to find a window but then, As soon as I touched the window, It sharded. Glass separated everywhere and, out came some black smoke from the window and filled up the whole factory. There was smoke everywhere and I couldn’t see anything. And as I turned around the creepy little doll popped out into my face. I jumped in fear and screamed my lungs out. I was super scared that I bumped my head onto the wall, I fainted. The little Doll never did anything. All she did was give me this medicine. It tasted like honey mixed with some pepper. 

When I woke up the doll was smiling and giggling, saying “Oh my god! Isabelle you’re awake, now it’s time for you to come with me to my secret room”. I stood up and followed the doll. As I was following her I felt really different. I didn’t feel like my normal self, when I looked down I was wearing some sort of doll clothes. As we entered the room there were lots of doll clothes, shoes and wigs lying around the room. I was confused for a while and I saw the doll pushing me forward. She gave me some clothes to wear, I then went ahead in the bathroom and changed my clothes. 

I looked in the mirror and I looked BEAUTIFUL! I have never looked this pretty before! I was so happy jumping around with excitement. I exited the bathroom and showed the doll my clothes, I told her I loved it. “Hey look at me, I look so beautiful with these clothes on. How do you think I look?” I said with happiness. 

“Oh Isabelle you’re beautiful! Now come and wear this wig and these pretty shoes” The doll said. I went to the doll and she put the wig on for me. As I looked in the mirror again I had brunette hair with some highlights. I then wore my blue sparkly shoes that had glitter on them. I was dancing around with joy. The doll put some makeup on me and I looked even more gorgeous. I was wearing a blue dress with white flowers, a brunette wig with highlights, some sparkly blue shoes & Beautiful blue glittery makeup! I was super happy and weird at the same time. I think that pill she gave me changed my personality! 

I don’t know what to do, I started to think about how I fainted and what happened. I looked in the mirror one more time and I screamed. “ AHHHHHHHH! YOU TURNED ME INTO A DOLLLLLLL!!!” I screamed my lungs out. I went back into the bathroom, changed my clothes, wore my shoes, took off my wig & washed my Makeup Away. I ran and saw my boss, Anna. I lost my breath and couldn’t talk, Anna was freaking out. She asked me what happened, I explained everything to her outside. She was so confused and felt so sorry for me. I told her I am not working at the factory anymore. She then tried to convince me to stay. I said sorry and I left

What good friends looks like 


Kia ora, My name is Swaimah and I am going to write an explanation about Good friends. What is a good friend? A good friend is a friend that trusts you and who is honest about things. A good friend is someone who always looks up to you and supports you in any type of thing no matter who they are. The key is to always help your friend and never fight with them or else your true friendship is all over. I think being a good friend means to be loyal and don’t say mean things to your friend. Remember to always treat others the way you want to be treated. This means treat others with respect and they will show you respect back. You can also trust the person and they can trust you back. If you are mean to them they will be mean to you back. Whatever you do to them they do it to you. 


Being trustworthy to a friend makes them feel really good about themselves. If you want to be a good friend try to trust your friend and see how it goes, if you believe that your friend can do anything you might as well just trust them. Nothing else but, trusting your friends means a lot to them. Not trusting a friend is really bad because trustworthy is the first thing you should really do if you want to be a fantastic friend. We all trust each other in different ways, we all have different personalities, just because you look different or you come from a different country it doesn’t mean we can’t trust them. We should give each other a chance to trust one another to see if they are good, trustworthy friend. How can I be a trustworthy friend? What you have to do is trust the person. It’s not really that hard at all. When your friend says “ let’s go on a ride in my new car!” trust them and say “Sure!I’d love to!”. Always trust them no matter what. 


Honesty is so important because if you don’t tell your friend the truth about what happened then they can’t trust you anymore. If you don’t wanna lose your friend it’s better if you tell the truth and don’t lie to each other. Honesty is always the key to friendship. Just because no one can trust you, you should always be honest to them so they can really appreciate you for telling the truth. Honesty is always what people look up to, When you tell the truth people will trust you more onwards day by day.  How can I be honest? Well first of all you have og to a friend you trust and when they ask you a question like “What happened during lunchtime?” You have to answer back what you actually did. Don’t just say “ I was playing tag the whole time” You should add more information and more words than just simple words. For example you could say “ Me, Zaria, Vika and Mary we were all playing tag down on the big field, It was really fun I was the tagger first then Mary the Zaria and the Vika!”. You can add more information if you want to. 


Loyalty is always the key to being a good friend. Loyalty is similar to honesty. Loyalty is when you give back the stuff your friend gave to you. Don’t just keep the stuff they gave to you because you might lose it or break it. Always return their stuff back, if you see someone else taking or stealing your friend’s stuff go ahead and be an upstander and tell them to put it back. If they don’t put it back, go tell the teacher or an adult you see near you. Always care for your friend’s equipment and never lose them, treat the equipment like it’s yours. Go find a friend and tell them if the equipment is there’s, if it is there’s you should properly give it back to them so they don’t be sad or upset. 


Being a good friend means a lot to your friend. Being trustworthy, honest and loyal is how you are a good friend to them. Never lose trust from your friend or else you will be lonely forever (not really forever). Especially when you are friends with them for at least 3-4 years. You should ever leave them if they have been friends with you for a long time. If you are trustworthy or honest you will be in a long friendship for years. Thank you for reading my explanation writing. I hope you enjoyed it.
