Ms. Kinney’s 2nd graders at St. Peter’s school in Kansas City have been working hard! They have been learning about identifying the beginning, middle, and end of a story. They have also focused on how illustrators and authors work together when making a book so that the pictures match the words. Their learning came together in the Blue 68 LLI Lesson. After the students read the book The Fun Club Goes to the Vet Clinic, they completed illustrations to match the beginning, middle, and end of the story. The students focused hard to make sure they didn’t get off topic of the book and add extras to their pictures. In the last box the students could be creative because in thesurprise ending, we find out that Meatball the dog is having puppies in two weeks!
