Writing World 2017-18 Week #4

October22

Hello and welcome to week #4! This week we are trying something different – you have five words. They must all be in your writing but can be in any order. The key is to plan beforehand so you get them all in and it tells a story.

The words are:

Professor       Crocodile      Purple         Twisted       Difficult

Obviously, your story will need a character and I think these words give you a couple to choose from! Push your vocab choices but remember you only have 100 words to use! Enjoy!
