Progressive Story 12
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.

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.

Freddy and the Pizza Palace




In a deep dark cave a huge dragon is sleeping. At the near by castle they are having an enormous party. People are singing, dancing and eating pizza. The music is getting louder and louder. The microphone carries the noise to the cave. The music wakes the snoring dragon!

The large grumpy dragon woke up. He wondered where the loud music was coming from. His mighty wings flew to where "Boom Boom Pow" by the Black-Eyed Peas was blaring. Freddy flew to the biggest castle he had ever seen. Oh, the delicious smell of the yummy, cheesy, spicy pizza was driving Freddy crazy!


Freddy breathed fire on the big wooden door. It burnt down. He flew inside the door and found the pizza. Freddy gobbled all the pizza up. He rubbed his tummy because the pizza was delicious! After he ate, Freddy went to the dance floor and the kids ran away screaming. Freddy didn't care and listened to "Baby" by Justin Beiber that started playing. Freddy jammed out! He was jumping up and down so hard that the castle started to tumble and rumble and fall down.

Freddy fell down, and gigantic boulders created an avalanche that covered him. He tried to fly away, but the huge boulders ripped his wings and he couldn't fly away. The children tried to help the dragon by using a ray gun to disintegrate the rocks. "Bzzzzzzzz.....BOOM!" The ray gun was so powerful that it made an enormous hole in the castle floor. Freddy plumetted into the hole and landed with a tremendous crash. "OUCH!" cried Freddy. "What happened?" All of the other children ran off from the loud thud except for Zack, a very brave boy. Zack looked into the hole and said to Freddy, "Are you OK?" Freddy replied, "I'm stuck and I can't escape from this cavern. Can you help me?" Zack told him, "I'll go get the other children to try and help me set you free." Zack ran off to find the other children. When he asked them if they would help him get the dragon out of the hole, they said yes. But, they were worried that they wouldln't be strong enough, so they decided to ask their fathers for help. The fathers went to the hole and looked at the dragon. They decided that they were not strong enough to move the dragon either so they decided to use a truck. "Vroommmm. EEERRTT!" They lowered some rope and Zack and the other children tied it around Freddy. Then, the fathers attached it to the truck. "BEEP BEEP BEEEEEEEEEEEE...CRACK, BOOM, CRUNCH!" Oh no! Freddy was so heavy that the truck fell apart! They will have to come up with another idea.

Everyone was gathered around the hole. They were looking down at the dragon scratching their heads. Freddy was looking back at them with sad, dragon eyes. No one had any ideas. Suddenly, a voice yelled out “Excuse me! Excuse me!” Turning to see whose voice it was, the people were surprised to see a small, young boy standing on a gigantic boulder. “I’m Professor Charles the Great and I have just the spell to help!” Laughter filled the air. Zach knew Charles was just an ordinary second grader from Ms. Cassette’s class, but he knew Charles was also a science whiz! Zach stepped forward and said, “Okay, Charles. Let’s hear your idea.” Charles explained that his magic spell would shrink the dragon so they could pull him out of the hole. Everyone liked the idea, so they decided to give it a try. When it came time for Charles’s magic spell, everyone took big steps back from the hole. Charles reached into his boot and pulled out a sparkling, gold wand. “Ooooh! Aaaah!” exclaimed the crowd. In a deep, brave voice Charles chanted “Salakado SalakroI will shrink youBibbity Boppity Boo!” He crossed his arms and had a big, proud smile on his face! When he looked down, he saw that nothing happened and he said “What?” He tried again. POOF! Smoke filled the air! When the smoke cleared, everyone peered into the hole and saw a tiny, little dragon! Zach climbed down into the hole to get little Freddy! The town celebrated the rescue of Freddy, the bravery of Zach and Charles’s A+++ in science class with a pizza party! Freddy stayed small and lived in the castle as a tiny pet dragon!
