Progressive Story 8
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.

Title (given by the last class to write):

Type your story here:

Once upon a Hallows eve, there was a gloomy misty graveyard that was coming alive. Miss Brittinstein awakened from her deadly rest. As she awoke, she saw a ghostly figure coming across the graveyard. Boo the ghost shouted, “ Boo!” Miss Brittinstein laughed and was glad to see her old friend Boo. Boo the ghost and Miss Brittinstein meet every Hallows eve and try to stir up some mischief. Miss Brittinstein asked, “So what’s your devious plan this year? Scaring more children? Haunting more houses?” Boo the ghost replied, “No, I have been a watching a teacher that has been very naughty. I think we should pay him a visit.” On their way to the school, a car comes speeding around the corner and doesn’t see Miss Brittinstein and Boo crossing the street. The car runs right through Boo and he chuckled, “Lucky for me, I am already dead!” Miss Brittinstein laughed too and gave her good friend a hug. Boo and Miss Brittinstein continue to The Haunted High School. As they approach the window, Boo points to Mr. Wrinkles, the math teacher.

Mr. Wrinkles was evil and mean. Mr. Wrinkles had red hair and a red beard. He was a very tall man. He always assigns 50 pages of work to do. If you don`t finish your homework you must do 50 laps of the school. He was very bossy to his students and his friends. Mr Wrinkles was very wrinkly because he took baths for many hours. His skin was wrinkled all the time. When they looked in the window Mr Wrinkles was making his students do extra work. Mr Wrinkles was yelling at the students to get them to listen. He yelled to them to do 50 extra laps of the school. Mr Wrinkles was being mean and grouchy. The students were not listening, instead they were messing up the classroom. Mr Wrinkles yelled even louder, he was screaming for the students to stop. Boo and Miss B came in the window.

They couldn’t believe what they saw. How could a person that mean be a teacher. Boo says “Let’s scare Mr. Wrinkles away from the school so that he will never come back to the school again.” Miss Brittenstein says, “We should make him run 50 laps around the school and do 100 pieces of homework.” Boo started laughing in a haunted voice. Ha-Ha-Ha. “Let’s make a booby trap from a cage to catch him when he is setting at his desk. We can tie an invisible rope to an invisible cage and lower it down on top of him.” “Great idea, Boo” says Miss Brittenstein in a scary voice.

So off they go to Jody's Store to buy a cage, rope, and Angel's Invisible Spray Paint. Laughing all the way back to school, Miss Brittenstein and Boo sneak in a window to Mr. Wrinkle's classroom. They paint the cage and rope with the invisible spray paint and set up the booby trap. Boo and Miss Brittenstein hide in the closet but leave the door open just a crack so they can see what happens next. Mr. Wrinkles comes in the classroom with a grumpy face and slams the door closed. BOOM! Miss Brittenstein and Boo are so startled they start to twitch. Mr. Wrinkles starts to sit in his chair.
