If you would like to share information about you: email address, Skype name, Twitter name, etc., please feel free to add it to the chart. Some teachers mentioned that they would like to actually "meet" some of the students that work on their story.

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. Illustrations can be drawn and photographed or created using a computer program such as Kidpix.

Go to Instructions Page.



Start your story here:
One stormy day a small, shaggy, brown, dog named Quincy was looking for water to drink when she found a small, clear, pond in the park. The rain was splashing in the water and thunder cracked behind her, scaring her so much that she fell into the pond. Almost as soon as she had fallen into the pond a pair of hands rescued her. The hands belonged to a gentle boy who bent down, picked her up and smiled. Stanley, the boy, brought Quincy back to his tree house. Quincy spent many days with Stanley and she grew to love him, but Quincy longed to return home.

Quincy longed so much to get back to her house that when Stanley wasn't looking, Quincy took off to get back home. Quincy traveled many hours to get back home. She later found out that she was going the opposite direction. Quincy was trying to figure out where she was, when suddenly she was covered by a net. She was thinking really hard who the net belonged to. She came to the conclusion that the net belonged to a dog catcher.


The dog catcher named Eric brought Quincy to the local pound where he placed her in a cold, concrete cell filled with many different types of dogs. Quincy instantly felt like all the other dogs were staring at her. Suddenly, Quincy noticed a large Rottweiler stepping towards her. She felt very afraid because she had heard that Rottweilers are very strong and mean. To her surprise, Ike welcomed her warmly and offered her a bone he had been saving. That night, after spending many hours talking, Ike and Quincy made a plan to break out of the shelter.


The very next day the Eric the dog-catcher bought a new family looking for a new pet dog to the cell where Ike and Quincy were. Of course the family chose Quincy to take home as their new pet. Quincy and Ike knew this was their chance to put their plan into action. As the Eric bent down to pick up Quincy, Ike ran underneath him and tripped him over. Quincy saw her chance, ran past the family and out the door. She soon found herself alone and lost on the streets again but this time she decided to stay out of sight, so she ran through backyards and gardens ducking from bush to bush. Suddenly before she knew it she was in a park. As she wandered around her memory flashed back to a familiar scene. There was the pond that she had fallen into many many days before.

Eric, the dog catcher realizes that Quincy is missing and heads out to try and rescue him. As Eric approaches the lake, he spots something floating on the surface. He decides to take a plunge into the lake thinking that this object might be Quincy. As he starts to approach the object, he suddenly can't remember how to swim. He tries to grab this object only to see that it was a floating walrus. Meanwhile, Quincy hears the dog catcher struggling in the water. He takes the plunge into the lake, drags Eric back to land to make sure he is safely on land. Once he knows Eric is safe on land, he takes off in search of Stanley. Quincy decided to close her eyes and try and remember why this lake and park are so familiar. As she is standing there with her eyes closed, a set of hands picks her up and shocks her. When she opens her eyes, she is relieved to see that she is reunited with Stanley.
