Progressive Story 28
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.

The New Kid's Disastrous Mystery

One ominous day Tiffany and Michael were walking down the cracked sidewalk to their new school. They had just moved from California to Pennsylvania where they will attend Edison Elementary. As they arrived at the school they noticed the air temperature had dropped and made goose bumps appear on their arms. When Tiffany and Michael got to their classroom they found their teacher Miss Sunshine. She was waiting for them with a mysterious smile on her face. All of the sudden there was a flash of lightning and poof, she disappeared.

Tiffany and Michael thought it was just them, but when they turned around they saw all the other students looking like they just saw a ghost! When they went into the classroom next door to ask Ms. Storm what had happened, a drop of water dripped from the ceiling and poof she was gone too. They were extremely terrified! So they sprinted down the hall until they were a far distance from the classroom. They checked the principal’s room. However, when they ran into Mr. Flood’s office, they heard a crack of thunder and “poof” he had disappeared too.

"Wow! No Principal?" Tiffany and Michael were inspecting the hallway to see who was making the teachers disappear. They ran into Mrs. Tornado. They asked, "Why are people disappearing?" She said, "Go to the cafeteria to find the keys to the gym. Suddenly, smoke filled the hallway and Mrs. Tornado disappeared.


Tiffany and Michael streaked down the hall toward the cafeteria. When they got there, they discovered that the door was locked. They banged on the door and Mrs. Blizzard, the cafeteria manager came and let them in. Mrs. Blizzard handed them a set of keys and went back to the kitchen to cook lunch. Suddenly, they saw smoke pouring out of the kitchen. The smoke formed the letters of a message. The message read, "Go to the gym and look for Mr. Cyclone. He will take you in to the equipment room. Look for a baseball connected to a string." They dashed into the kitchen to see if Mrs. Blizzard was okay. She was nowhere to be found. They hurried toward the gym, more frightened than ever.

They knew they had to come up with a solution. As fun as school would be without any teachers, they had to figure out this mystery. They arrived at the gym and saw Mr. Cyclone standing there with a kickball in his hand. He began to spin out of control and "poof" he disappeared dropping the kickball causing it to pop! The popped kickball revealed a key. Tiffany picked up the key, grabbed Michael, and ran to the equipment room. Upon entering they noticed only one locker had a lock. Tiffany placed the key into the lock and turned it. There they saw a baseball hanging from a string. Michael pulled gently on the baseball and all of a sudden the entire wall opened up! There was a hidden room with a long, creepy, dark hallway. They tiptoed down the hallway to discover a small locked door. They tried the key and it slipped through the keyhole and disappeared. When the door opened they saw the teachers for just a split second before they all turned into natural disasters. The room became smokey and they heard a BOOM, saw a FLASH of lightning, snow started to fall heavily, and everything began to spin and twirl. When they looked down their feet were wet because the room was flooded! A whirlpool began to form on the floor! Tiffany and Michael shrieked as they were sucked into the whirlpool. Before they knew it they were back in their classroom, soaking wet, sitting in their seats as Miss Sunshine was getting ready to start class. Miss Sunshine looked at Tiffany and Michael and asked, "Why are you both soaking wet?" Tiffany and Michael looked at each other, shrugged their shoulders, and began to just giggle. Miss Sunshine smiled back and gave them a wink and their first school day at their new school began.
