on October 1, 2012

A strong and interesting story consists of so many things. A clear beginning, middle and end help form the shape of a story,but the problem and solution help to make it interesting. The details and description make a story juicy, and using C.U.P.S. helps the reader understand what you are trying to say. Let’s create a story that connects people from around the world.

The introduction:

A small group of friends, two young boys and a young girl, were playing in the early evening in the young girl’s backyard. They were the best of friends and loved to play tag and hide and go seek as often as they could . The girl’s parents were not home for the evening, they had gone for a long walk around the neighborhood. Suddenly , the girl stopped. “I think I heard the doorbell.” she said.

    Rat!!! She looked a little bit closer. Wait a minute, it was a rat!!! The two boys and the girl stood on the porch for a second and then started screaming like they just sat on a tack. After they went inside the girl’s house, the one boy said, “I wonder where it came from?” “All I know is that it freaked me out,” said the girl. “Me too,” said the boys. “I guess we have a case to solve,” said the one boy. The girl got a weird feeling kind of like a shiver. “Do you feel that too?” “What do you mean?” said one of the boys……..

      The praying mantis hopped back to his home in the bushes and started to make his bed. Then, he swept the floor. After that, the praying mantis took a walk to see new neighbors, all of a sudden he heard a strange noise… it was his favorite food! A heard of flies were all headinding to a restraunt under the hump of the old oak tree. But when the praying mantis caught them with his sharp pinchers the poor flies couldn’t go to the dinner. So the praying mantis gobbled up all of the flies and crawled home. After he got home the praying mantis took a deep sleep.

The kids shout, “how cute there is a baby bunny at the door!” The little girls asks, “where is the bunny’s mom?” The kids decide that the little bunny will get cold and decide to take the little bunny inside to get warm. The boys decide that the bunny needs a snack and they go to the fridge to get a carrot and some lettuce. Now the hunt is on, the little girl says, “we must find the bunny’s mom”. The little boys say, “we should try looking at the park!”……….

    it fell face smack onto the floor. Then, they went to see if the bunny was okay. They found out that the bunny was faking. After that, everybody was laughing. Then the bunny marched out of the house and bumped right into the praying mantis and it was not in a good mood because the praying mantis was looking for food and it pinched the bunny on the belly. Next, the bunny hopped to a gigantic weed and the hopping creature peared inside the horible weed. Then, the bunny saw three little bugs called bees they were having a meeting. When the bunny looked in the weed again the bees flew out and started to chase the poor bunny. The hopping creature got stung millions of times and the bunny started to think he had bad luck. So the bunny decided to keep it that way because everyone would care for him.

    Fluffy the snake is the family pet now! Fluffy did something bad he ate the praying mantis so the snake is really long and bites very hard so they make him live in a long cage they have a big top to open the cage to put the water and new food in the cage so it does not bite them but they took a chance and took it out and it did not bite it was very nice and friendly to everyone so they made a little house for it they let it come out whenever it wants to get out they love it but one thing they don’t like is that it ate the praying mantis but they love it they never want to be mad at it. It is nice and good to everyone except only one thing…
