Word Girl arrives at the jewelry store just in time to catch Chuck the Evil Sandwich Maker red-handed. There is only one problem - she's got a cold and is sick and contagious! She can't stop sneezing - even on Chuck.


(on-o-mat-o-poe-a)



 
Writing Challenge!
A-CHOO is way to write the sound of a sneeze. Any words that imitate sounds are called onomatopoeia. Describe the beginning of this episode, in a paragraph, using words of sound, or onomatopoeia.

Some things to think about before you begin:
Word Girl is filled with action and there are tons of other sounds in this clip, including "A-CHOO". Listen for fun sounds and think about how you would describe them. What does it sound like when Word Girl enters the jewelry store? Does the door "thud", "bang", or "smash" open? Does Word Girl "zoom" or "zip" around? You can use words you already know or make up your own.

"Stop right there Chuck! Achoo!" "You'll never catch me! Well, at least not with that crumby sidekick!" "Ooh Ooh," muttered Huggy. "It's okay Huggy," said Word Girl. "Now back to business!" exclaimed Word Girl. At that same moment Word Girl sprung from the floor and tackled Chuck The Evil Sandwich Maker! As quickly as she had come, Word Girl had him handcuffed and empty handed of any jewels. "This is not the last of me Word Girl!" "This cold that I have might be yucky, but you're the real bug around here!" snapped Word Girl. Just fifteen minutes later, the police had arrived. They took them to the state jail far away from here. Later that day, Word Girl and Huggy had lunch at their local café. And if you're wondering, Huggy is doing just fine and oh, here's Word Girl and Huggy right now! " Hi Sharon, I just wanted to add that I couldn't have done it without Huggy." Well you heard it and we are out of time! Until next time, this is, Nightly News.

Word Girl walks to a jewelry store opens the door, bang it hits the brick wall. she walks in and says, " May I have a silver glittery ring please?" The manager said " I'm sorry we have ran out of silver glittery rings, but I can order you some or you can come back Friday and get one." So Word Girl walked back outside where it was cold and said, " Wow they just ordered some like Monday and they are already out, that is crazy." Then she heard the manager open the door he politely said " ma'am I'm sorry but you can't stand here people want in." Then just as she turned around "A-CHOO" she had sneezed all over him she said, " I'm sorry sir I didn't know I was going to sneeze when I turned around please forgive me" The manager said, I forgive you it's ok," Then she left and he went back inside.

Reginald thought that Chuck's sack smelled like salami so he rudely told our villain, "Ugh! Sir, your silly sack wreaks of salami." WordGirl now enters the jewelry store, throwing the door open with a "wham!" "A-choo!"
