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 me. The pictures should illustrate events in the section that your class wrote.

Please visit the Instructions Page for more information.

If you would like to share any contact information please feel free to add it to the chart. This way your classes have a chance to actually "meet" some of the students that collaborate on their story.

Fright Night Flight!

One dark and stormy Halloween night there was a haunted house in the middle of no where.There were bats flying out of the windows, surrounding the house. The wood was rotting and there were rats running out of the abandoned looking house. All the windows were broken and the house was dark and empty. Inside the house there were broken stairs, trash on the floor, and shattered glass. It looked like a junk yard! Upstairs there was a witch standing over a cauldron stirring her brew. She had a green face with a wart on her long pointy nose.

Outside the storm was getting worse and the witch began to cackle.

Her evil laugh was strong because her brew was making it stormier so no one could go trick-or-treating. “He, he, he,” the witch said. “BOOM!” went the storm. Meanwhile, the kids were thinking about how they could go trick-or-treating. The witch flew out to get more things for her brew, and then one of the kids saw her fly out of the house. The witch went to a dark foggy graveyard to get two bones. She needed them to finish her evil brew to ruin Halloween night. The kid who saw the witch went to all of his friends’ houses and told them about her. They saw the witch starting to fly back to the haunted house. So, they put on their rain jackets and boots and followed her.

The kids ran to the haunted house. They saw a light in the upstairs window. All of a sudden there was a noise behind them! Out of the dark trees and bushes came a stray dog, dragging a ladder! This was just what the kids needed to spy on the witch. They snuck up the ladder and into the room. They crept up behind her and shoved her into the cauldron. As she fell into the cauldron, she dragged one of the kids with her!

As the witch fell into the cauldron, her magic wand fell out of her pocket onto the floor. “ZZZZrrrrnnn” One of the kids heard the noise the wand made as it hit the floor and picked it up before the witch could grab it. All of a sudden a beam of light from the wand shot out the window and hit the stray dog. “Howwwwlll” went the dog. And with that, the dog turned into Kung Fu Canine. Kung Fu Canine jumped up into the window and knocked the cauldron over. The liquid from the cauldron started burning through the floor like acid.

The acid was getting hot. It was now draining through a hole in the floor to the bottom of the old junky house. The children were in grave danger of slipping on the acid and falling through the hole. Kung Fu Canine noticed this problem. He quickly kicked the children away so that they did not fall and perish. Now Kung Fu had to save the other child from the witch in the cauldron. Before the canine hero could do that, the witch pounced out of the cauldron and started toward the children who the dog just saved. Kung Fu Canine was overwhelmed, because he had to decide how to save everybody, plus foil the witch's evil plan to ruin the kids' Halloween. Since the witch was now out of the cauldron, Kung Fu decided to fish the last child out of the brew. He saved everyone from danger, but he still had to get rid of that horrible witch, and the acid was spreading!

To escape the hot acid, the witch hopped on her broom. She flew at the children, trying to destroy them, and destroy their Halloween. Kung Fu Canine tried to karate kick the witch off the broom. His kick cracked the broom, but it was not enough to topple her off. She was zooming in circles above the kids' heads, cackling and smiling evily. One of the children made a quick dash to a pile of old bones piled up in the corner. "Quick!" the child said, "Help me build a catapult!" "Why?" asked his friend. "Well," he said, "if we can find an old junky stone pot around here, and load it with hot acid, then we could catapult it right into the witch! We will destroy her!" "Good idea!" the others cheered.

The children hurriedly built the catapult and carefully filled an old pot with acid while the dog distracted the witch with his karate kicks and punches. Finally, they had a working catapult. "One-Twooo-THREE!" shouted Kung Fu, and they launched the pot of acid toward the witch. Ssssszzzzzz! The acid sizzled and hissed and smoked. BAM. Right into the witch! The acid was smoking hot by now. When it touched the witch, she let out a shriek and, to everyone's surprise, she exploded into a poof of nasty, yellow cloud.

"Wow." Kung Fu yelled. "You did it! We are all super heroes tonight!" He grabbed the witches broom before it could roll into the hole in the floor. "Quick!" yelled the dog, "Hop on! Let's FLY! We have a Halloween night to celebrate!" As they escaped through the broken windows, the rain from the storm rinsed off small bits of acid that were beginning to eat holes in the kids' raincoats and boots. The children were so happy to be away from the witch! They were safe, they made a new canine friend. AND, they were able to celebrate Halloween after all!
