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): Jose, the Colorful Alien

Start your story here:

Once upon a time, there was a little green alien. His name was Jose. He lived far, far away on a great big planet. One day, a great big alien came to see Jose. He told Jose that Jose needed go to an important meeting. Jose went to the wrong building though. A huge machine was in the building and it paralyzed Jose. He started turning different colours. All of a sudden, he was PURPLE!

Then a big space ship came and picked Jose up. The space ship took Jose to Jupiter. Jose was feeling sad because he was far away from home and his friends and family. He snuck out of the space ship and called for a space taxi. The taxi came and took him back into space where meteors were crashing into the taxi.

The meteors crashed into the taxi and it fell apart. Then the alien and the taxi driver began to be friends. A new taxi drove them to the meeting and at the meeting Jose turned to the color blue. Then he turned another color. He was not happy about that. Jose was green. Jose was listening to the talk of important things when he turned orange. He brought a tiny little pod that turned into a space pod to help him to escape.

Jose waited for his chance to escape. The big alien decides he needs a break from the meeting, and he walks down the hall for a cup of coffee and a donut. This was Jose's big chance! He opens a window in the meeting room, climbs into his little orange escape pod, and launches the pod out the window. Jose thinks that he is on his way back to his great big planet. Unfortunately, he went the wrong direction, and didn't notice until he runs out of gas just as he sees that he is right above Earth. His tiny escape pod had a tiny gas tank. He has just enough power to safely land on Earth.

Jose finally landed on earth and his alien dog, Sparky, greeted him with a wet tongue. He landed in front of our school and saw Mrs. Johnson's car and started to drive it. He unfortunately crashed into a police car and Mrs. Johnson's car blew up. The surprised policeman was an alien and took Jose to the Alien space center. Sparky was taken too. Jose and Sparky were on the Alien News. The space ship blasted off to take Jose back to the meeting, he turned baby blue. Then he escaped. With Sparky in his arms, he jumped out of the space ship. He landed on his house and his family had a party to welcome him home. They told him he was on the Alien News, he was surprised. Finally that night Jose turned back to his normal color, green.
