Were you absent today? Here’s what you need to know: today we created writing folders in class. Find out from your classmates what color folders we used, and ask your teacher to please give you one.

Then turn to your right, and you’ll see a rolling cart filled with colored file folders. Put your folder in the box with the colored folders that match yours.
After making our folders, we wrote a story. In Box 3, you’ll find a “story-starter” page with a title like “Wendy Winger” or “Ghost in My Room” (they all have different titles). Pick a story starter that appeals to you, take it to your seat, and begin writing your story.
