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.

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.

Please feel free to make corrections to your name/school/location or add the names of teachers if you are working with someone on this project.

Title (Alice in Dreamland):

Start your story here:
I was sitting in our little white car as we left to go to Miami. I felt sad that we were leaving our home. My family was pretty excited but not me. We left and I saw our little house fade away. I was sitting in my seat when I suddenly saw a beautiful and suspicious butterfly. Our car stopped at a red light. I got out of the car and followed the butterfly to a little cottage. Inside the cottage were bottles that were labeled with types of dreams. I drank one of them and fell face-down to the floor. I was in my Wonderland with overly sized mushrooms and neon green grass.

This was MY Wonderland that I had explored many times in my dreams. I see familiar sights like her favorite fluffy puppy, Lady. Lady appears in my dreams when I feel sad. She comforts me when she snuggles her wet nose next to mine. I am excited about seeing Lady and all my friends from my dreams. I get up and walk toward the enormous mushrooms. Behind a furry pink one, I see unfamiliar sight—a short, gray fuzzy rabbit. The rabbit smiles at me and hops away into the tall green grass. I have never seen him before so I follow him into the tall grass and to a dark unusual cave. He motions for me to come in…

So I follow the rabbit into the cave and I see a little door. The door is cracked. I hear unfamiliar voices coming from behind the door. When I open it I see a swirling vortex. I fall in. When I land, I find that I am in another kind of wonderland. Flying near me is the beautiful and suspicious butterfly. I hear the unfamiliar voices again. I follow the voices and come to a forest. I don’t know what to do. I go in the forest and find a dog. I follow the dog deeper into the forest. There are a lot of animals in the forest and one weird acting man.
The man was making funny noises that sounded like chirping birds. He was wearing a red, ripped shirt, jazz pants, and 2 left clown shoes. I stared at the weird man for quite a while. Finally, I got up the courage and said, “Hi, my name is Alice.”
The weird man, in between chirping answered, “My name is Bob.”
Suddenly, the dog I had followed, said, “Nice to meet you Alice. My name is Shrek.”
I was surprised to hear a dog talk, but I had seen a lot of strange things today. Just then an orangutan entered the clearing in the woods. At the same time that things began to get even weirder, I heard a strange, rumbling sound coming from the vortex above me. Next, I saw a bright flash of lightning and then poof the vortex disappeared.
The orangutan said, “Now you will have to find a different way out.”

Just then the Beautiful Butterfly flutters by and I follow it once again. I find myself entering a mysterious red castle. Inside I see a small woman wearing a crown. I assume that she is a queen. "Please help me I am away from my family and I am trying to get back to them." The Red Queen says that she has a key for me. I take the key and place it in the door behind her. When I open the door I see my little house that we had just left. It was empty and quiet. Just then the good Queen appears in a large bubble and says, "Alice, I have another key for you." I step back from the door and take her key. I place it in the door next to the one I had just opened. I open that door and see another house. It is beautiful and filled with laughter. I see my family there. The good Queen says that I have a choice to make. "You can go back to your old life or you can....... Just then I hear someone shouting, "Alice, Alice, Alice....." I abruptly sit up and see playing on the video screen within the headrest in front of me Alice in Wonderland. I smile realizing that I am safe in my car and headed to a wonderful new home.

The End
