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 consequences and taking responsibility when things go wrong:
Yvonne gets carried away when she is yodeling. She doesn’t notice anything going on around her. When she yodels too long and too high, her toys begin to yell at her to stop. But Yvonne doesn’t hear them. They brace themselves, but the noise she is making causes them to break apart and fall off the shelf. When Yvonne sees what she has done to her toys, she begins sucking her thumb and humming. The toys magically mend themselves and become as they were before. They ask her to hum from now on.
