Before reading Scaredy Cat, Splat, Mrs. Hobbie spoke to the second graders about the beginning, middle, and end of a story. In the beginning of a story, the characters and setting are usually introduced. The problem is usually made clear in the middle. The solution wraps up the story at the end. Students really enjoyed hearing Scaredy Cat, Splat and then wrote and illustrated the beginning, middle, and ending of the story on a pumpkin. Their work was outstanding (as you can see :)!
