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 how caring about others makes them want to be your friend:
Casper has moved into the quiet country away from the noise of the city. He so desperately wants to find a friend. Strolling and singing, Casper walks through the woods looking for a friend. He asks a cricket, a fly and a butterfly to be his friend, but they move away quickly. When the forest critter hear the singing and realize the friendliness of Casper, they begin to follow him. Imagine Casper’s surprise when he turns around and sees the forest filled with friends.
