Stories and Voicethreads
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
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): Space Kitty
Start your story here:
One rainy day, Tyler moved into his new house and he wanted to explore it. The house was more than 100 years old and the neighbors told him that at night you can hear footsteps in the attic. The neighbors didn't know if there were creatures lurking about. That night, Tyler heard footsteps in the attic and the next day, he went to investigate. While he was walking around in the attic, he discovered a piece of gold. He picked it up and heard the shimmering voice of a little girl that said, "What are you doing here in my house?"
Tyler said, "I heard some creepy noises in the attic last night and I wanted to check it out." The little girl said that she had been waiting for him for 100 years! "Why have you ben waiting for me? I just moved here!" said Tyler. He inquired further, "How did you know I was coming? Are you a psychic?"
The little girl said, " I didn't know you were coming, but I'm glad you are here!" Then she said, "I've been waiting for you because your parents have something I've been looking for." "It's Starbuck. He has magical powers!" she explained further.
"Magical powers? What kind of magical powers?" asked Tyler. The little girl said,
"I think he might be able to turn into something." She added, "He can turn into dinosaurs!" "He can also change into other things." Tyler exclaimed, "Wow, that's really amazing!" "How did he get those powers?" he asked?
“Well, first I’m Sabrina and actually Starbuck is my cat."
"Starbuck is a what?" exclaimed Tyler who was stunned to hear those words.
"Remember the time you and your family went on a camping trip to the Yellowstone and found a dog?” Tyler was a bit uneasy to hear this piece of truth and he was all eyes and ears listening to the girl.”You see back then I was a witch in training and I cast the wrong spell on him. He ran away and encountered a wizard sort of alien from a dusty asteroid that fell on the woods. This wizard alien implanted a micro chip into his brain that enables him to turn into something else." With that Sabrina took a deep breathe and continued,”When you found Starbuck your mom and dad decided to take care of Starbuck since nobody wanted him."
“How come we never saw him turn into something else?"
Tyler interrupted Sabrina and demanded, "So, my parents know about this?”
Then Sabrina whispered, “No…BUT DON’T TELL THEM!”
“Why…THEY DESERVE TO KNOW!”Tyler yelled. Right as he said those five words he was startled when red, pink, blue, purple, and green lights shone in through the window. The second he saw them, he was already out the door, eager to find out what was there. Sabrina followed him outside a few moments later, and found Tyler frozen with fear. "What’s the matt- AHHHHHH!!!” Sabrina screamed as she saw what had stopped Tyler in his tracks. In front of him was an huge spaceship with a glowing green tractor beam. Starbuck was getting abducted by aliens! "Quick! We have to go save him!” she shouted desperately. Starbuck reached the ship's hatch, and the door quickly slid closed. As the alien ship started to fly up and away, Tyler finally reanimated and sprang into action.
Then Tyler did something he never did before! He turned into a giant 75 foot hamburger with extra ketchup and pickles. After that, he rolled on to the ship, and he grabbed the cat. Tyler turned into a 3,000 foot moose and made the ship sink into the ground. Then he yelled, “STARBUCK” and turned into a giant mole. Next, he dug his way out of the ground. Then his parents came out and yelled. “TYLER!” His parents watched as Tyler turn back into a human. Before they could say anything Tyler disappeared into space.
The alien spaceship abducted him into space. Then he looked out of the window of the spaceship and saw Starbucks clinging to an asteroid. He pulled open the window and jumped onto the asteroid. The asteroid was so big that he got lost on it. Then blue dust started coming out of a hole. The dust started to turn into a genie. “You get three wishes, what shall they be?” Tyler wished for a map, a sports car, and the location of the cat on the asteroid. Suddenly, the sports car turned into a flying car. Tyler put the map on the ceiling of the car and started to drive. Then the car broke down and he has to hitch hike to find the cat. After what felt like forever, finally he found Starbucks, quickly picked him up, went back to earth with the longest rope in the world and told the government that there were aliens trying to abduct people. He said good-bye to Sabrina and Starbucks and got home in time for dinner.
