The sun was shining and Shilo was exploring. We wanted to go on a picnic. We had everything we needed but we couldn’t find Shilo. But Shilo was at the pond. But they didn’t see him. He was chasing the duck and swimming. He had a great time and had lots of fun. Shilo came back and we had the picnic. The end
The Magic Chocolate Box
Once there was a chocolate box. But it wasn’t any chocolate box. It was a magic box. Each time a person took a chocolate one appeared in its place. And always fresh.
It was a heart shaped box. Kids fight over it a lot. [There was] Milk chocolate. There was semi-sweet and major mint and lots of others. There were always 20 chocolates.
A wise wizard carved the box and gave it away to a kind family [with] two kids and [and the] one to take care of them. Their father had died when they were three. The wizard disappeared before they could thank him. The end.
The end is not. The wizard had come back to give even more chocolates. This time 50. The kids were stuffed.
The wind was shaking. Uniqua was hurrying back home to do her chores when something distracted her. It was a rock. It is pretty. She took it home. What kind of rock is this? A geode. She put it in her rock collection. She had a rock collection since she was three. It is really fun. She had wish rocks, rubies, crystals and now a geode. She loved rocks.
The Sunflower Seed
Once upon a time there was a farmer named Jake. [He] sold his cow for some beans. And the beans turned into a sunflower.
You may not know this, but sunflowers are alive which means the sunflower seeds are alive. So they can talk...
The farmer didn’t know that and the sunflower talked to him. [Jake] was scared. He said, “How do you talk?”
And the flower said: “Same way you do.”
“Oh, I did not know that.”
“Well, it’s true”
They became friends and talked about life and stuff like that. They became friends.
The sunflower’s seed was named Sunny.
Actually the last one she had written without dialogue until I suggested it. I still think it could be longer.
Jenna also came up with the following “made-up” chant:
Friends go to Mars to get Candy bars
Enemies go to Jupiter to get stupider.
