Alyssia wrote a story: Strega Nona Meets the Three Bears
There was an old lady and her name was Strega Nona. Strega Nona was a witch. One day Strega Nona went to the woods. There she saw a house. Inside was three bowls of porridge. She tried all three bowls. The last one was the best bowl. Next, she wanted to rest. She tried all three chairs. The middle chair was the best. Next she was very sleepy. She found 3 beds. The biggest bed was the best. The 3 bears arrived home. They found out everything. When they got up stairs they found Strega Nona in papas bed. Strega Nona woke up. She did not run. She got out her magic pot and said the magic words. The 3 bears got scared and ran out. Strega Nona kept the house and lived happily ever after. The End.
