This week in Ms. McGrath's class we were working on grammar, story writing and recount writing. Sophia in Rm. 12 wrote a fantastic story, taking inspiration from a picture of an old junk shop. Sophia worked very hard to create beautiful descriptive sentences and when you read her story you'll feel like you're in "Tom's Amazing Junk Shop" yourself. Below you will find Sophia's story and the picture that inspired it.
Comment below telling us what sort of shop you would run if you were Tom.
The Old Junk Shop
One day I went into an old junk shop. It was very dusty and untidy. The shop was full with large and small items; but I didn't know what to choose. There were things from the olden days like a pram, a doll and a top hat. There was a skeleton for science and instruments for music. Rackets and baseball bats and golf clubs for sports were in every box. After looking around I decided to clean up the shop. Then I brushed the floor, cleaned the windows and I used the mop to clean up the cobwebs.I found a can of old turquoise blue paint and a painting brush. I climbed up a rusty old ladder and started to paint the walls,the doors and the windows. After that I went outside and thought to myself maybe I need a sign and some lights. On my sign it said Tom's Amazing New Junk Shop,with lights around it. I decided to become the shopkeeper and make sure I had my shop ready for customers.

Your story was absolutly amazing Sophia. It was full of descriptions. The kind of shops we would open would be a pet shop, a a toy shop, a clothes shop or a shopkins shop.
