There was a class and a teacher, Mrs. Rosebloom. The class had to make a story, but Jacob couldn't think of anything. His friends helped him use his imagination. Then Jacob had an idea. The next day Franky brought his cousin, Margarita, to school. Everyone was friends with her. Then she had to go back to her house. When she got home she sent a letter to Jacob, and Jacob was happy. The next day Katy said, "It's the 20th Anniversary for Mrs. Rosebloom." After school the whole class went to the store to by Mrs. Rosebloom a present. They bought a glass deer but Jacob fell and pushed Franky down. Franky fell on top of the glass deer Katy was holding. Then the class made an anniversary card for Mrs. Rosebloom. Mrs. Rosebloom was happy.

My favorite part of the story is when the class gave Mrs. Rosebloom a card because it was a good part of the story. My favorite character is Jacob because he tries and he always gets it wrong. The pictures help tell the story.

I think others should read this story because it is a wonderful story. It shows you how to think of others.
