It's time for a weather wander!

Welcome back - it’s week 2 of Mrs Wordsmith’s Summer Camp! Last week, we started thinking about story settings. (If you missed it, you can find previous camp weeks here.)

This week:

Words related to weather can help us get the mood of the story across to the reader...
Someone reading your story might expect different things from different settings. “It was a dark and stormy night” creates a very different mood than “A gentle breeze blew across the sunny beach,” for example.

Will your story match the weather, or will it be more of a surprise?
For a little inspiration, download the settings vocabulary packet for your age group:

Roll Call
Speaking of places and weather…where in the world are you? Send us your location in the world (keep it general - no need for personal information!) and let us know what the landscape or the weather is like, using some of the words from the packet.

Send your response to [email protected], @ us on social, or use #CampWordsmith!

We’ll make a big map of all of our summer campers and pick one response to feature in next week’s newsletter. T
he winner will get our How to Write a Story printable for free!

We’re writing a (very short) story together. Each week until the end of the summer, we’ll add a little more to the story!

Here’s how it started: Shang High had never seen a place like this before.

The next sentence, submitted by Amelie is:
It was a warm summer night at the queen's palace. Ear-splitting music filled the air–the disco party was in full swing! But empty frames covered every wall…
What do you think should come next?

Now it’s your turn! Write 1-2 sentences continuing the story and send it to [email protected]. Our team loved all of the amazing submissions we got last week. And next week, we’ll continue the story with one of your submissions!
Hungry for more?

If you like our writing tips and vocabulary packets, you can find much more in our How to Write a Story printable.
Let's be friends!
