Winter Learning Journey

For this activity in the winter learning journey, I have to pretend that I got lost in a forest all by myself. I have to write a short story (8-10 sentences) about what might happen next.

It was a wonderful day, with the sun shining and the birds chirping. I strolled along the forest floor, dazed by the forest’s natural beauty. Suddenly, I realized the I couldn’t hear my companions footsteps, talk or endless laughter. I was lost! I wandered around for ages, shouting at the top of my lungs, hoping that they might hear me. My only water bottle lay in my bag, dry as a bone. Soon, the heat began to kick in. My lips were cracked and dry and my throat was sore. After a while, I just gave up on looking for my friends and lay down. Soon, sleep came. In the morning, I didn’t really feel like walking, so I just sat on the forest floor. After a couple of hours, I heard a peculiar noise. It was a helicopter. As quick as I could, I climbed the tallest tree around me and when I saw the helicopter I waved my arms frantically. Someone in the helicopter let down a piece of rope and I grabbed it and climbed up inside.


  1. Hi Daniel, This story was very deep and it included a lot of figures of speech which was good to see. Some of your sentences though did not make any sense so please double check your work before you publish it.

  2. Hi Daniel,
    Your short story was very interesting and I liked how you added different types of punctuation. Although, some of your sentences didn't make sense so could you please go over your work again?

  3. Hi Daniel I like you story you wrote. It has some powerful words like dazed and chirping. I like the ending of the story when the helicopter came. Some of your sentences don't make sense so please can you double check. Keep up the great work!

  6. Hello Daniel, I really like how you have been using some powerful words and similes in your story. They hooked me into reading your whole story. Amazing job and keep it up.

  7. Hi Daniel. I really like your story. You have described the setting very well. I really like your synonym for friends (companions). I really like how you have used punctuation marks like, commas and exclamation marks to make your story sound a lot better. Keep up the great work.

  8. Daniel,

    This is a really well written, creative story! I like how you used a simile to describe your thirst - "dry as a bone". Well done on writing an awesomely imaginative piece of writing!
