Fortunately / Unfortunately with Grade 2

Thanks to for the idea and the image.
Today in second grade, we read Fortunately by Remy Charlip, a story that follows Ned through a series of problems and resolutions.

Then we wrote our own version as a class ... the kids much preferred coming up with the "unfortunately" parts!

Finally, the students paired up to write and illustrate even more versions. I'll post pictures of them working together - and their stories - next week. For now, enjoy the stories they wrote as a group:

Room 4

One day, Wally got ice cream.
Unfortunately, it dropped on the ground.
Fortunately, he did the 5-second rule and was able to eat it.
Unfortunately, it melted.
Fortunately, his mom accidentally got two ice creams.
Unfortunately, his dog ate the extra one.
Fortunately, a man gave Wally his ice cream.
Unfortunately, he realized he wanted the ice cream and took it back.
Fortunately, it started to rain ice cream, so Wally ate it all.
Unfortunately, he got all sticky.
Fortunately, he had a shower right next to him that had been delivered by a spaceship.
Unfortunately, it was made out of glass.
Fortunately, he could buy curtains for it.
Unfortunately, the glass broke while he was showering.
Fortunately, he did a Harry Potter spell, and his clothes went back on.

Room 5
One day, there was a monster in the woods near the school.
Unfortunately, he ate children.
Fortunately, the children got away.
Unfortunately, he had no one to eat.
Fortunately, there was an army coming his way.
Unfortunately, the army had weapons.
Fortunately, he had his own weapon.
Unfortunately, it wasn't working.
Fortunately, the monster also had his own army of monsters.
Unfortunately, they had to go tinkle in the woods.
Fortunately, the monster didn't get hit by any of the human army's weapons.
Unfortunately, his girlfriend Barbara did get hit.
Fortunately, she came back to life.
Unfortunately, it was as a ghost.
Fortunately, she could go through stuff.
Unfortunately, the monster then got hit.
Fortunately, the monster army's tinkle was poisonous, so they peed on the human army.
Unfortunately, the army had monster busters.
Fortunately, the monster came back and ate the army and smooched his girlfriend.
Unfortunately, he went right through her because she was a ghost.
