Message In A Bottle

Message In A Bottle

Question time!

What do you think the boy is afraid of?

What has just happened that is causing him to turn around?

What is he looking at?

Who does he hope will come and help him?

What might the note say?

How did the chair come to be in the ocean?

Why do you think he is dressed in such a fashion?

Perfect picture!

Can you make the scroll inside the bottle?

Think carefully about the type of paper it is made from, and what might be written on it.

Story starter!

He looked back at the scene behind him. He just couldn’t believe what had happened! How could it ever have come to this?

He clutched the cold bottle in his fingertips, ready to launch it into the waves. The message rolled up inside it was his last chance. Hopefully the current would take it far away from this place. This place where all his dreams lay in ruins.

He prayed someone would find it. He prayed someone would come before it was too late…

Can you continue the story?

Sentence challenge!

Can you think of adjectives to describe the water and how the bottle feels in his hand?

Can you describe how the boy might be feeling? Can you describe the letter inside the bottle?

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help?

The boy held the bottle in his hand. The water felt wet. Clouds were gathering
