2nd and 3rd grade readers love the Teacher from the Black Lagoon book series. This simple literature study provides a response page that can be used with any of the Black Lagoon books. It has children recall the beginning and end of each story, retell specific events, rate the story, and illustrate Hubie's worst fears and his reality.
Also provided is a story frame for kids to create their OWN Black Lagoon story, starting with: "We got a new _______ today. I was worried that _____ ..."
A cover is also included for kids to identify their favorite of the books read. In my 2nd/3rd grade class, we read aloud at least 5 books, then create our own story, and bind our work with a cover to take home. It's a big hit every year.
