Your class will be writing ONE group paragraph(s) for the story (not each student). The first class will write the intro paragraph(s). Then the next class will read the paragraph(s) and decide how they want to continue the story. This will continue until the last class on the list writes the ending and gives the story a title. Your paragraph(s) will be typed onto this Wiki page. You will also need to send (email as .jpg) the 3 pictures to your Teacher Leader. The pictures should illustrate events in the section that your class wrote.

Please visit the Instructions Page for more information.

Please add your information to the chart. This way your classes can "see" where the story is traveling and have a chance to actually "meet" some of the students who collaborate on their story.

Title (Given by the last class):

Start your story here:

Once upon a time there lived a mouse family in the hole of a tree. There were two children named Paws and Cheeto. Paws and Cheeto were very playful and cute, but Paws was not just cute--she was very smart, too. Their parents names were Mrs. Whiskers and Mr. Whiskers. One day Paws and Cheeto were playing tag outside and they saw a big shadow coming closer and closer. They ran to knock on the window but their parents were packing.


Paws and Cheeto ran to the door. When they go to the door, they looked up and saw an owl with his mouth open and drooling. Quickly they found a big stick and charged the door with it and busted it open. The owl flew away. Mr and Mrs Whiskers told the children that they moving because it was getting too close to winter and the family was running out of food. They were moving to Brazil where they would live in a gingerbread house.

The family packed up and started their trip to Brazil. They decided to take a break and stop in the Bahamas to spend some time at the beach. The first day the family spent time walking along the beach. Cheeto kept walking closer and closer to the water. Before he knew it, a wave crashed over him and swept him out to sea. Paws saw a boat sailing in the sea. She flew to it and screamed, 'Go forward and get Cheeto. HURRY UP!'. The boat sailed over to Cheeto, Paws threw him a life saver. Cheeto grabbed it and Paws pulled him to safety. When they got back to the beach Paws dried Cheeto off with a towel. Then the family continued on their trip to Brazil.


They took a small mouse airplane to Brazil. A big eagle swoops down and tries to grab the plane. So the plane circles around the eagle and they start throwing eagle food out the window at the eagle. So the eagle flies away while it eats the food. They land safely in Brazil and get a rental cat.

When they got to the gingerbread house, Paws and Cheeto got out their swimsuits and went into the whip cream pool. When they finished swimming they went inside for hot chocolate. when they finished their hot chocolate it was time for bed. They were very hungry, so they went outside and got some jube jubes off of the house. They went to bed and had sweet dreams.
The End
