How Green Fins Made Friends By: Jane Room: 23 Grade: 3
Once there was a little fish named Green Fins. Green Fins went to a big school. She was a bright fish, and she liked to help her teachers. But, she was very sad. Her friends always picked on her. They called her names because she was small and swam very slowly. Slow Poke Ha… ha… ha… Old Granny that’s what you are! Snails move faster than you
One day, the fish were playing hide and seek in the coral reef. Suddenly, a big ugly shark appeared. The shark was mean and he was looking for a tasty meal. The little fish were frightened. They stared at the enormous shark. The shark showed them his big teeth.
Green Fins thought fast. She knew they could not out swim the Great Big Shark. She saw the coral reef nearby, and had a brilliant idea. Run. I will distract the Shark Yummy Yummy HELP!
The brave fish went up to the Shark and said “Catch me if you can”. This gave her friends time to swim away. How dare you! Catch me if you can!
Then, Green Fins slowly crept towards the coral and hid.
The Great Big Shark could not find Green Fins. Green Fins had cleverly camouflaged in the Coral Reef.
The Great Big Shark got tired and swam away.
All the fish came out to celebrate. Green Fins was a Hero! We will never tease you again. Everyone has something special about them Thank you Green Fins
