class read Mouse Mess by Linnea Riley. In the story the
mouse gets up when everyone else goes to bed and makes a mess in
the kitchen. Each student took home a digital camera to take a
picture of something in their kitchen that they thought the
mouse would make a mess eating. Pictures were inserted into Kid
Pix and students drew a mouse getting into the food. Students
dictated a sentence to go along with their picture.
