Lost in the Woods by Tyrick Roberts
One sunny morning, Roy and I went into the woods to have fun.  We packed our bags with hot dogs, sugar cane, fired fish, apples, melon, ripe bananas, oranges and grapes and set out on our journey. when we reached the woods we saw a lot of beg trees.  We were still walking when we heard a funny sound.  We looked around and saw a wild hog coming in our direction.  We started to run and after a while we realised that we were lost.  We cried out for help and luckily for us, a man was passing by and heard us.  He helped us to find our way out of the woods.  We thanked the man and then went home.

Myself as a Honda by Chadine Taylor
I am a Blue Honda Stream and I am 20 years old.  I was made in the United States of America.  I was shipped to a car mart on Half-Way Tree Road in Kingston.   One day, a young man named Kemoy came into the car mart to buy a car and liked me.  He bought me for $500,000.  He drove me to work every day until one day he crashed me into a wall.  And that was the end of me.

My Teacher  by Ava-Gayle Pryce
My teacher's name is Miss Lorna Edwards.  Every morning she comes to school early.  She is a good teacher and teaches us well.  I love her because she is very kind and she eats her lunch with us every day in the classroom.  She keeps her classroom very clean and tidy and does not want to see any garbage on the floor.  My teacher is beautiful and wears nice clothes to school.

Fire!  by Zemora Coombs
It was a Friday when I came home from school.  As I reached the gate, I saw smoke coming from the house.  I ran inside and saw my mohter lying on the floor with fire on her.  I filled a pan with water and threw it on her.  She did not open her eyes when I called her, so I called for help.  Our neighbour, Mr Sam, came  to help me.  He lifted her up and put her in the back of his car.  I also sat in the back and Mr Sam pull my mother's head in my lap.  He drove very fast to the Princess Margaret Hospital.  When we reached the hospital, the doctors looked after my mother. They said she would be in the hospital for a while because she was badly burnt.  I cried because I missed my mother so much.  Mr Sam took me home and I stayed with my aunt.

What an Adventure! by Faith Spencer
One hot day, I went into the woods to look for my pig.  I crossed a river and saw a big apple tree with some nice, juicy apples on it.  I decided to climb the apple tree, but I looked around and saw a big bull.  It seemed as if it was coming towards me, so I started to run.  I ran and ran until I got lost in the woods.  A farmer found me and took me home.
