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 responsibility:
Izzy was Jason’s pet Iguana, and she loved to be out of her aquarium. Her favorite place to sleep was inside Dad’s slippers. That is where she was when Dad began packing for his trip to Alaska. When Izzy went missing, Jason remembered about the slipper and called Dad. By this time Izzy had been looking for Jason’s room and had fell out a window into the snow. Now she was asleep in a cozy igloo. What an adventure she had—even a ride in an airplane, but she was happy to be back home with Jason. After that, she was careful to keep her tail visible when she slept in Dad’s slippers.
