Here are some examples of the super sentences they came up with:
I dashed home, went in the house and told my dad.

First of all, the Iron man ate some tractors, went home and got trapped.

The Iron Man tripped on a cobbled stone, fell face first on a cliff and fell into miniature pieces.
The Iron Man lifted a heavy iron foot, let it go on the bone hard ground and roared at the top of his voice.

Next, my father found out, he made a trap and evenutally the iron man fell in to the huge pit.
Here is an example of a whole page from a diary:
Today I was going to the lake and I suddenly saw a flashing light. Then I quickly turned around, ran to it and gasped! There standing a few yards away from me was a giant iron monster standing the trees. I zoomed back to my dad, stumbled on the log and panted...monster....in trees...near us! My dad and his other farmers ran to my house and discussed their plan. Then I saw them rush out, get in their diggers and make a giant hole.
Next week the chilldren are writing their own short story about defeating a monster. Hopefully they will use some sentences of 3 in them too!
