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 caring and sharing:
Iris Ibis adores ice cream. No matter what the weather, rain, snow, sunshine, whatever, she will be out in it selling her ice cream—but most of all eating ice cream. As a matter of fact, she will be singing her special song about how much she loves ice cream—even in a hailstorm. When Dolly see her out in a blizzard, she invites Iris inside and the two decide to open an ice cream and doughnut shop together. They take turns selling in the neighborhood. They even have contests in their shop—but of course Iris always wins the ice cream eating contest.
