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 :)! 
It's Halloween, and Splat is determined to be the scariest cat in the class. Unfortunately he's just too much of a scaredy-cat. He's afraid of a little spider, and everyone says his costume looks more silly than scary. And when Mrs. Wimpydimple tells a ghost story in the dark, Splat gets so frightened that he tips over his jack-o'-lantern. But when the lights go back on, the entire class is scared silly by a small, black, furry creature with a big pumpkin head. Whooooo can it be?
