Ms. Grattan’s 3rd grade students at St. Raphael the Archangel read, “The Skunk with no Stripes” in class. It is a story about a baby skunk who was born with no stripes. Since he has no stripes, he wonders if he really is a skunk. He goes on a journey asking many other animals if he might be one of them. When he meets a bear and scares him away with his “stinky” spray, he realizes he must be a skunk! It’s a very cute fiction story. They enjoyed making predictions about if he was a skunk, or how he would ever find out.
