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.
From Drain to Riches
There once was an evil rat named Speedy Gonzales, and trust me, he was no ordinary rat. Speedy was able to glow in the dark and had a side kick named Scarface. Scarface was a mole with an orange Mohawk. Together they made plans to steal cheese and conquer the world. There was only one problem… They fell down the bathtub drain and got stuck in time. How will they ever get out of this mess?
Once in the drain, time stood still. Speedy and Scarface realized they had to act quickly to prevent being permanently stuck in time. Scarface had an idea. He asked Speedy to start glowing. Speedy agreed to that, but Scarface got too close, and his mohawk caught on fire. The combination of the glowing and fire created an explosion, and Speedy and Scarface shot out of the drain. Fortunately they were unharmed. But now, a new problem arose when they found themselves stuck to the bathroom hooks. With both of them being stuck, how would they ever get out of this dilemma?
Speedy started swinging towards Scarface back and forth trying to make contact. Scarface was the heavier of the two, so every time Speedy bumped into him his shirt would tug on the hook and rip from the friction caused by Scarface's weight and motion. Speedy kept swinging back and forth, back and forth. He was so close to setting Scarface free, but no matter how much swinging he did, it didn't seem to work anymore. They needed to try something else. Then Scarface shouted, "Yo, Speedy how's my hawk?"Speedy was about to get angry when he remembered that Scarface's mohawk had caught on fire. Speedy shouted with excitement, "It's still smoldering a bit, see if you can use it to your advantage. Tilt your head back, try to burn through what's left of your shirt and see if you can free yourself!"
Scarface managed to free himself with his smoldering hair and landed on the toilet tank. He then shouted to Speedy, “Hey, Speedy, do you think you can glow bright enough to melt the hook?” Speedy thought about it for a few seconds, then he began to glow so much that he illuminated the entire bathroom, to the point of blinding the mole, Scarface. The hook did melt and Speedy was finally free. Speedy began to lead Scarface off the toilet tank, by telling him what to do; however, in his fear because of the blindness, Scarface stopped listening to Speedy and ended up falling in the trashcan, which whirled slightly with his weight and made the lid fall, closing Scarface into the trashcan. What can they do now to free Scarface and help him regain his sight.
Fortunately, Scarface has a peculiar nervous habit of eating. He eats everything in the trash can, making him the size of a bowling ball. He started rolling from side to side causing the trash can to tip and he fell out! As for his sight problem, he knows a great laser eye surgeon who is also a plastic surgeon. Then Oprah caught the entire spectacle on her 43rd of Soctober special. Then they moved to the Big Apple, to collect their fame and fortune ( and trash). Eventually, as most stars do, Scarface decided to sue Speedy for his sight loss on Judge Judy, but the case was dismissed. The two later decided they lived wonderful lives and did not need to be evil cheese stealers.
