The lucky pencil

The lucky pencil

Emer got an A+ in every test at school. She used the same greenish pencil and Emer called it her lucky pencil. One day there was a pop-up math test. Emer knew she would get an A+. When the teacher was handing out the test to Emer she reached for her lucky pencil BUT it was gone!

“I had it right here” she thought. Emer ran up to the front of the class “But where did it go” she shouted. “Emer get down from there right now” yelled the teacher “But I need my lucky pencil” Emer screamed. Now you know why Emer is in detention.




  1. Hello Nathan,

    My apologies for a late comment.

    Well done. I enjoyed reading your story and seeing you made good use of the prompt. For poor Emer, she received a detention because she disobeyed the teacher when she felt a lucky pencil would mean she wouldn’t get an A+.
