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.

Start your story here: Friends, Adventure and Fun
One warm sunny summer day, Sophie, Bernie, Isabelle, and Mason spent the day doing what they always do when they have time off from school. They like to spend time together at Weaver Lake Park playing on all of the equipment and the spending the afternoon swimming in the lake. These four friends spend as much time together as they possibly can. They have known each other since they were three years old when they all moved into the same neighborhood. And let me tell you the neighborhood has not been the same since. These four friends have been known to have done some pretty crazy things.
On this particular summer day, Isabelle gets an idea that they should walk home from the park using a different path than they usually do. She says, “Hey guys lets walk home using the path that goes by that big, creepy house that is for sale.” Mason chimed in and said, “Yeah, remember the last time when we heard those scary noises in the yard.” Bernie didn’t say anything because he didn’t want to go near that place, and was hoping that Sophie would say she didn’t want to go that way either. Well, Bernie did not get his wish that day. Sophie shouted with excitement, “We haven’t been by that place in ages, let’s go check it out!” As the four friends skipped down the path they all came to a sudden stop when they rounded the corner and saw a “Sold” sign in the yard and a moving truck out front unloading furniture into the house. “Holy cow,” they all shouted at the same time.

The lady that was moving in was walking her black collie. She had straight, blonde hair and deep brown eyes. Her eyes were so mysterious!! The four friends gasped in horror when they saw all of the weird things she was carrying into her house. She carried in a magic spell book, magic potion, and a broom that had rockets attached to the back of it. Mason decided he was going to say hello to the lady, but the lady just snarled at him and slammed her door shut. "Maybe we should come back when it gets dark and try to see what is going on in there." Bernie exclaimed.

When it was darker the kids came back to the creepy house with the mysterious lady.

They were trying to see something through the windows, but they were closed and covered with black curtains, then, they decided to go to the back of the house. The four kids saw a small hole at the back door. First, Sophie looks through the peephole and she saw the weird lady cooking and mixing a magic soup in a big pot saying magic words aloud!

There was the black colllie, a cat with her and that's not all- It looked like she had a few other pets, too! After we wtached for a while we saw a bunny rabbit with big ears, a smallish dog, 2 more cats (which means she had 3), and a guinea pig. We watched the woman for a long time! She made something with tha tspell book and all those ingredients and we were amazed. It turns out she was making a the potion for her animals. We saw her get bowls out and then put them on the floor and all. She put the soup "potion" in each bowl, and the pets ate for a while. We were happy to find out this was what was going on, but now we are planning our next adventure which is how to get to meet this lady and her animals....and what does that potion do to them????



The End
