2nd Graders tell stories set in rural communities

2nd grade classes participated in a week-long Li’l Stories Lab on rural communities. Students integrated what they had learned from their study of rural communities into an original fiction story. They had a lot of fun creating and editing their stories, recording themselves telling their stories and lastly producing a written narrative. Throughout the week students practiced collaborating with friends. Here are students’ stories from December of 2018:
