Week 36

The Day It Rained Chocolate Pudding

Contributed by Barb  Martin    

    Pretend that you woke up this morning and heard rain outside, hitting your windows, pounding on the roof. It is still dark out, so it takes you a minute to notice that the "rain" coming down is a funny dark color. You can't tell what it is, so you quietly make your way to the outside door, open it and smell---chocolate! You step out the door and slowly put a hand into the stuff. It is chocolate! Chocolate pudding is raining out of the sky!

        What will you do? Who will you tell? What will happen when you meet your friends? Make a list of all the possibilities you can think of, then choose your best ideas to write your story.
