Wild Mike by Emily - Final draft 3-25-08
It was the beginning of a snowy school day in Smalltown
West Virginia. Mike was thinking about being in a forest while his teacher was teaching. Mike was in second grade class. His teacher was Mr. Brigs, a young man of 23 that wore a suit, a bow tie, wore eye glasses, and had brown hair. While Mr. Brigs was teaching how to add three-digit numbers Mike was daydreaming. When he was daydreaming he thought he was in a forest and it was dark. In the forest it was windy, there were lots of trees, and there was screeching!!! He didn't know what to do so he started pacing. Back and forth he went then... he saw a baby grizzly bear lumber from behind a bush. He was puzzled. He was so puzzled he fainted. When he got up two hours later the bear talked to him!!! He was so stunned he almost fainted again, but he didn't. When the bear was talking he said " what is your name?" Mike said " well my name is Mike!"
Mike and the bear started to go down the path. The baby bear asked " where are you taking me?" Then Mike said " to a safe place!" Mike and the bear kept on walking until sundown.

When it was dark Mike and the little bear tried to find a place to sleep. He didn't have very much luck with that. Then Mike climbed up the tree and knocked a bunch of leaves off of the tree. Then he laid them down on the ground. Mike told the bear to lay down and go to sleep. Then the bear told him "you have to rock me to sleep"!!! Mike wrapped him up in a leaf and rocked him. When the bear was asleep Mike tried to make a fire but he couldn't. So then Mike laid a bunch of leaves over him.

In the morning Mike had to wake up the little bear and tell him that he had to stop daydreaming. The bear started to cry. Mike told him " well I have to go because I have missed a lot of class." When he stopped daydreaming Mr. Brigs said it was time for lunch. When Mike had recess he took a piece of paper out and a pencil and wrote all about his dream!!! Then he told himself " I hope I have a daydream like that again!!!
The End





First draft -
My idea: My story is about a little boy named Mike. He is sleeping while his teacher, Mr. Brigs is teaching division. He is dreaming about that he is in a forest and he finds a baby grizzly bear. If you want to know more about my story you can read it on my wiki page when I am done with it.

Hi Emily this is Molly, I really liked your story.
I loved the bit were Mike puts the bear to sleep.Also when Mike writes the dream all down.
I have a question if Mikes taking the bear to a safe place then why does it say that they tried to find a place to sleep?
Also I heard that he was at Smalltown West Virginia is that a real place?
Again I liked your story and I hope you like mine. From Molly.
