Happy Halloween, everybody!
I made my students write scary stories and they all had to begin with "It was a dark and scary night." So, here's a little treat for you on this hallowed eve.
The Haunted House
It was a dark and scary night. Once there was a haunted house on Halloween night. Krithika, Kade, and Mackie (all real students in my class) were going together Halloween night.
Suddenly, Krithika's mom said, "You have to come inside for dinner!" But Krithika was the smart one out of all of them. Not a good idea.
Then Mackie got an idea. "How about going without Krithika and then we'd get all of the candy!" Bad idea.
"That's a great idea!" said Kade.
"Oh, not gooooood," said Mackie.
"What not goooooood?" said Kade.
"A haunted house!" said Mackie.
"What's a haunted house, you freakin' dude?" said Kade.
"That's not cool, dude," said Mackie.
"What?" said Kade.
"Oh, no," said Mackie.
"That is cool," said Kade.
Then the two ghosts ate both of them!
It was not a good idea to go without Krithika.
