I have slipped the surly bonds of earth and danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings.As promised: I asked my students if they would share some of their sentences. Not everyone was keen but here are some from the those who were:
I have abandoned the bloody shackles of prison and moped the land on long-forgotten charms. (Gab)I'm impressed. I hope their parents (with whom I've also shared this blog post) are too!
I have killed the anger inside of me and brought the best on I could be. (Jaz)
I have travelled the adventurous ocean of Atlantica and swam the darkest reefs with my sharp brown spear. (Tiahnee)
I have sung the beautiful music of Australia and performed on bright-shimmering stages. (Sara)
I have surfed the light-hearted waves of shores and swum the waters on giggling-golden beaches. (Tayla)
I have left the tight hold of worlds and escaped the Earth on small-angel wings. (Avril)
I have caught the beautiful birds of Adelaide and brushed the clouds with the softest-white feathers. (Kyra)
I have driven the dry roads of Australia and jumped the jetty on sandy-wet beaches. (Nikita)
I have stomped the monster on Pandora and jumped off the castles on mountains. (Corey)
I have run the muddy track of Mount Magnificent and jumped the finish line on quivering legs. (Riley)
I have spun the sticky webs of spider and wrapped the flies on joyful webs. (Blaed)
