Story starter!

Frozen to the spot in a mixed state of fear and wonder, Alice gazed at the strange happenings around her.

She felt dazed, as if stuck in some terrible dream.

Cards, some small and some large, darted to and fro in front of her eyes, dancing menacingly as if controlled by an invisible threat, as if they had a mind of their own.

Confused yet mesmerised, Alice began to make her way through the mysterious forest…

Can you continue the story? Is someone/something controlling the cards? Will Alice encounter anything else in the forest?

Sentence challenge!

Which ending would make this word an adverb?

Can you use adverbs in your writing today?

Perhaps you could use adverbs to show the possibility of something happening e.g. perhaps, surely, possibly, maybe.

Perhaps she would find other people soon.

Sick sentences!

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

Alice wore a dress. She walked through the forest.
