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:

It all started one snowy, silent night. All the little girls and boys in our neighborhood were tucked in tight under their covers, awaiting the arrival of Saint Nick. My little brother, Matthew, and I on the other hand, were terrified that the town bully may come steal our presents before we woke up. We were playing cards and even drinking a sugary slurpie in order to not fall asleep. Unfortunatly, we only lasted until midnight. Shortly after we fell asleep, my brother woke me up by yelling at the top of his lungs..."AUSTYN,WE HAVE BEEN HIT!"" I quickly ran down the stairs to see for myself. It was true, the town bully had stolen our presents this Christmas morning AGAIN!

Later that day we called our best friend Harry. Harry said that the same thing happened to him. We decided to team up and headed to Harry’s house to figure out a plan. Matthew and I brought our bully GPS tracking device to Harry’s house. We set out on a mission to get our presents back. As we were walking down the street the GPS started beeping and we noticed a boy carrying a large black bag over his shoulder. We chased him down the street and into a dark alley. We thought we had him cornered when he suddenly jumped over the wall. But by the time we figured out how to get over the wall he was long gone.

All of a sudden we spot the bully. He is running on the roof of the building across the street. Matthew, Austyn, and Harry climb down the wall and sprint across the street yelling at the thief, "STOP!!! Give us our presents back!" The chief of police, who is sitting in the coffee shop eating a donut, hears the children yelling. He drops his donut, runs outside, and trips on his chair.
