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): Michael and Alisa's Adventure

Start your story here:
Alisa and her brother Michael live with their parents in a log cabin near the town of Pioneerville. Alisa is 9 years old with blond hair. Michael is 10 years old with black hair. The winter weather had been bad and the brother and sister had not been able to visit their Grandmother who lived in Pioneerville. They missed her very much. Now the weather was slowly getting better. The children woke up and it was a cool, sunny spring day. They asked their mother if they could ride into town to visit their Grandmother. She said yes and fixed a pot of noodles for them to take with them. Noodles were their Grandmother’s favorite food.
Michael saddled a white horse for Alisa and a brown horse for him to ride. It would take them half a day to reach their Grandmother’s house. They enjoyed the ride. They saw baby animals and pretty flowers along the way. The children were happy to see the buildings of Pioneerville getting closer. They couldn’t wait to see their Grandmother and share the noodles with her.They were almost to Grandmother’s house when they had to stop. A group of people were standing in the road blocking the way. They were shouting and arguing with each other. The white and brown horses were scared and started to jump around.

Michael was able to settle his horse down because he knew how to control his horse. But Alisa couldn’t control her horse. Alisa’s horse kept jumping around and she fell off her horse. She injured her arm. The noodles spilled out of the bowl and landed on the ground. Alisa cried.
Michael asked, “Are you ok?”
Alisa said, “No, my arm hurts really bad!”
Michael said, “Don’t worry. I will stop the people who are arguing. We will ask them for help. We will get to Grandmother’s house.”
So they started walking with their horses until they got to the people who were arguing and shouting at each other. Michael shouted, “Stop fighting and arguing! We need to get to our Grandmother’s house! We need help! My sister is injured! She fell off her horse!”
Two men stopped arguing and said, “Let’s use this wagon to help your sister get to your
Grandmother’s house.”

They carefully loaded Alisa into the wagon and took her to Grandma's house. One of the men ran to get the doctor. He came to the house and said that Alisa's arm was broken and needed to be in a cast. The doctor said it was good that the men found him when they did because he was getting ready to leave town for a few days. Grandmother and Michael tried to take good care of Alisa but she didn't seem to be getting any better. Then one day she had a very high fever. Grandmother sent Michael to find the doctor, but he was gone. Michael didn't know what to do. Alisa need help but she was too weak to ride her horse and it would take too long to find another doctor.

Michael went back to Grandmother's house. He said, " Grandmother, I can't find the doctor. He has gone out of town. Do you have any medicine?"

Grandmother said, "I do have some medicine. Let's try it!"

Grandmother gave Alisa some of the medicine with water. Alisa went to sleep. Grandmother and Michael waited. They made some lunch. After they ate lunch Alisa woke up. She felt better and she was hungry. So Grandmother made her some chicken soup. Alisa ate the soup and she went back to sleep.

The next morning Alisa felt a lot better. They heard a knock on the door. It was the doctor! The doctor checked her arm, her temperature, her ears and her throat. He said, "Alisa needs to go home. She is ok."

That afternoon Alisa and Michael's mother and father arrived at Grandmother's house. They spent the night at Grandmother's house. The next morning they went back home.
