Make story time interesting. PowerPoint audio books read to the students. This story is from First Phonics, a phonics curriculum for preschoolers. There are 31 stories about the alliterative characters from the program. Included with each story is the character’s song. Most of the stories subtly teach a character-building trait. This one teaches a lesson about the perils of taking a dare:
April Ape will do anything someone dares her to do. Barney Bear tries her out, by daring her to eat a goldfish. But when she gets out of hand and eats everything she sees, Barney becomes fearful of what will happen to her. When she becomes ill and has to take yucky, mucky medicine, April learns her lesson about taking a dare—well almost.
