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.

Title (given by the last class to write): Adventures on Lost Island
Type your story here:
Three magic turtles were swimming across the ocean to a lost island. Their names were Shelly, Coral, and Fabio. They had to go through a lot of seaweed and fight a giant, ferocious sea monster to get to the island. As they were approaching the shore, they got caught in a big net. It just so happened that Shelly's shell was pointy and she was able to cut the net with her sharp shell. Since it was a lost island, they thought it would be a good idea to look around and find a home. They walked through a forest of tropical trees that were swaying in the breeze. Lots of animals also lived on the island. They found a large volcano with a small cave on the side so they decided to go in. As they walked deeper and deeper into the dark cave, they heard a strange noise. SQUEEK! SQUEEK! "What was that?" said Fabio. Coral saw a bat and she said, "AHHHHHH!" Shelly said, "Don't worry, they are friendly bats, not vampire bats." They walked further and heard swords clashing together. They hid behind a rock and peered out cautiously and saw a group of pirates fighting! They tried to escape as quickly as they could, but when they got to the entrance of the cave, a bunch of rocks fell right in front of them. They were trapped! They heard thumping and roaring noises outside of the cave. It sounded like dinosaurs!
Actually, it was not dinosaurs outside. It was a turtle army! They heard the gigantic rocks tumbling. The turtle army came to fight the pirates and save Shelly, Coral and Fabio. General Jack Power Turtle told his army to use their magic shells that turn into drills. “Stage 1! Heads in the shells! Stage 2 Drills ready! Stage 3 “Drill the rocks troops!” commanded the General. The turtle troops started drilling the rocks and set Shelly, Coral and Fabio free. All the turtles rushed towards the ocean again to crawl onto the submarines for safety but then they spotted the pirates running towards them yelling “Get those turtles!”
When the mean, ugly pirates came out of the cave they had their swords ready to fight. Some had eye patches and gold earrings. Others had missing teeth and bandanas wrapped around their heads. They all looked scary and strong. The turtles ran faster and faster to get to the subs. As the pirates got closer to the ocean they captured a turtle. It was Coral. She had tripped and fell on some seaweed. Captain Crab said, “Arrrg! You know what to do with her!” The pirate named Shallowag dragged her on to the ship and tied her to the mast post.
Captain Crab told Coral to give them her magic shell. Coral said,
“You nasty, greedy pirates. You smell like dead fishheads. I will not give you my magic shell.” Since the Turtle Army was coming to Coral’s rescue, the pirates had no time to waste. The pirates went to the cannons. Captain Crab ordered, “Ready yourselves!”
Coral struggled to escape. She was really scared. Coral yelled, “Come get me!” Hearing Coral’s cries, her friends had an idea.
Shelly and Fabio tell General Jack Power Turtle their plan to rescue Coral. General Jack Power calls thirty of his troops to the cave by sounding out a loud gong sound from Fabio’s magic shell. GONG, GONG, GONG! Shelly, Fabio and General Jack Power stand on a rock in front of all the troops and tell them the plan. The attack begins. The turtle army starts to distract the pirates by shooting extra fast, blue cannon balls at the pirate ship, while Shelly and Fabio use their magic shells to become invisible and fly as fast as an army jet out to the ship to save Coral. Fabio gets to the ship and swims around throwing 10 smoke grenades at the pirates on the deck. Twenty of the pirates start frantically rubbing their eyes and get to close to the edge of the ship and fall over into the water. Fifteen are eaten by sharks while five others are hanging on the edge trying to climb back on the ship. The five pirates get back on the ship and they see Shelly trying to cut Coral free with her sharp shell. Shallowag and Captain Crab grab Shelly and Coral and this time they lock them in a prison on their ship, but Captain Crab accidently leaves the key in the lock. Shelly and Coral are screaming for help from their prison stall. Fabio who is still invisible, sneaks down to the pirate prison and whispers to Shelly and Coral “Shh, be quiet I have a plan.” Shallowag hears it get quiet all of the sudden and rushes down to the prison and tries to see what is happening. He sees Fabio’s green foot sticking out behind a barrel and captures him also.
Shelly and Coral see the pirate capture Fabio. They notice the keys left in the lock, so they decide to unlock the cell and attack Captain Crab, so he would release Fabio. Their plan worked and they went to the upper deck of the ship and jumped overboard for their escape back to Lost Island.
General Jack Power Turtle had his troops fire cannons at the pirate ship. After an hour long barage of cannon balls, the ship's main sails were damaged and smoke was seen coming from the deck area. The ship was moving slowly toward the horizon in an effort to return home.
Coral, Fabio, and Shelly shouted "And Don't Ever Come Back!" Everyone was happy and did a little victory dance on the beach!
