SLJ, Let it Rain- Day 5, Activity 3

As I stepped outside after what I thought was just a shower of rain, I saw all of the trees in my backyard were leafless, bare, with nothing on them. I thought to myself "before this shower of rain, these trees had leafs on them, but now they are gone". I thought of the possibilities that could of happened. "Someone could of came and clipped the leafs on our trees"? "Most probably not", I said answering my question I just asked myself.

I ran back inside to tell Mum and Dad what had happened. They ran out to the backyard with me and I showed them the naked trees. When I looked around to see what else had happened I saw that the grass had turned brown, when I looked up I saw that the sky was grey. "Let's go back inside" Mum said

We walked back inside I couldn't stop looking out the window at what had happened. The backyard looked so sad, it looked as though it was coated in grey paint.

The End


  1. Hi Caitlyn

    This is an incredibly sad piece of writing that I hope never comes true. Wouldn't it be so sad if this did actually happen.
    You have described the way this happens so well.
    I like that you refer to it as sad and looking like it was covered in grey paint. That really makes you see in your mind just what you are thinking as you are writing this story.
    This sounds like something that I have seen in a movie. I just can't think of the name of the movie. But just really sad.

    Great piece of writing Caitlyn, I enjoyed reading your story.

    Until next time

    Allie :)

    1. Hello Allie,

      It would be really sad if this ever happened anywhere in the world. I definitely would not want it to happen here on the West Coast.

      Caitlyn, :)


Thanks for your positive, thought and helpful comment on my work.
