100 word challenge: Eina

In the dead of the night, Mary-Anne ran through the pitch black forest. Terrified, she found something smooth. Mary-Anne turned on her flashlight and she realised what she had found was a yellow pail with water inside. Suddenly, she heard a horrifying sound just above. The atmosphere was cold. She looked up. Unexpectedly, the strange animal was a bear. It started singing a song by Justin Beiber! As quick as possible, Mary-Anne grabbed the large pail she found earlier and smacked the monstrous and idiotic bear with it. “I HATE JUSTIN BEIBER!” Mary Anne exclaimed. She was relieved when it ran away.

Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge

Ever wished you could win prizes just for learning? Well, here’s your chance!!

 

Scholastic (the book club people)  are running a Summer Reading Challenge between now and when you start Grade 5. They’ve challenged Australia and NZ kids to see if they can read for 1 million minutes all together by the end of January!

(How many hours is that? days? weeks? If you know, write us a quality comment!)

To register, you’ll need to visit http://summerreadingchallenge.scholastic.com.au/ and sign up. It’s free, but you might need help from your parents or a teacher to fill in the details. I’d suggest using your mathletics password and username, so that you remember them.

Once you’re registered, you can log in and enter how many minutes each day of reading you are doing. There are COOL PRIZES to be won, as well as improving your reading over the summer break.

If you have any questions, have a chat to your teachers- it would be great to see LOTS of CEPS kids working towards that 1 million minute challenge.
