Ms. Kinney’s 2nd graders at St. Peter’s in Kansas City are working hard! In LLI Blue 35 Lesson the students read the book The Muddy Mess. In the story the dad’s car and Jake’s bike were such a mess! When the two vehicles were finally clean it was time to go inside for lunch. When they knocked on the door to come in the mom looked at them-now they were a muddy mess! The students worked on retelling the story through complete sentences. We completed a shared writing. The students then copies the work using capitals, punctuation, spacing, and correct letter formation. It took a lot of focus! They were then able to illustrate their writing.
