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 about making the right kind of choices and asking questions if you are unsure of something:
Obadiah has some strange tastes for food….he likes whipped cream on broccoli or peanut butter and lettuce sandwiches. He even likes to drink soda after the fizz is gone. But his favorite is oatmeal. He eats it with mashed potatoes, chocolate sauce, ice cream or even sometimes with all three. Obadiah likes to eat oatmeal right from the box even before it is cooked. When he eats rat poison that he thinks is oatmeal, his mother calls 911. Obadiah decides to be careful what he eats from now on….but when he asks for peanut butter on eggs, his mother wonders if he has learned his lesson.
