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): Jesse and Bella's Adventure

Start your story here:
One stormy midnight Bella and Jesse were writing letters to their pen pals to see if they could go visit them in Paris. The week after their pen pals Jay and Judy received their letters, Bella and Jesse headed to the airport. They boarded a plane to Paris at 6:00 a.m. in the morning. It was hailing so hard and the clouds were so dark that the pilot couldn’t see where they were going. Then when they were close to landing in Paris they started to run out of gas and ended up in Ninja village.

Bella and Jesse decided they needed to get off the plane to find help. They used the emergency exit and slid down the yellow slide. They slowly looked around and saw lots of buildings but no people. Behind them they heard leaves rattling but when they turned around noone was there. Out of the corner of their eyes they saw a flash of black - but again there was nothing, They started to walk down the street. Bella and Jesse were frightened because they heard nothing and saw noone. Suddenly, they noticed something shiny on the ground. Jesse picked it up. It was a golden key.

All the Ninjas jumped out and turned into Samurais and guarded the golden key. Bella and Jesse got scared and started to run away. A Rock Ninja jumped out and blocked them. Bella and Jesse saw a way to escape and they ran over there. As they were running they became more frightened. They ran faster and faster. They escaped through an open door. The door slammed behind them. In the room on the other side of the door the room was filled with treasure.

They couldn't believe what they saw! There was gold, diamonds, crystals, rings, and crowns of both gold and silver. Bella found a bag and she started to put some of the gold in. But, Jesse was worried because she thought the Ninjas had entered the room when they weren't looking. They went to the door to try to escape, but the Ninjas had locked it! They panicked and started banging on the door. But, then they remembered the golden key that Jesse had picked up. They tried it on the door lock and....

The key worked! They quickly threw open the door, and on the other side was the mighty ninja king standing on a cloud. Bella and Jesse were frightened and amazed! The great, wise king looked at the young girls, smiled, and snapped his fingers. Bella and Jesse couldn't believe what happened next. They appeared in Paris right next to the Eiffel Tower! Just then Jesse suddenly woke up, and she realized that it was all just a dream!
