A cute class-generated story for Level 1 of any of these languages about a fox and a kitten, each who want a friend. They meet but find they don't speak each other's language. The solution to the dilemma is engaging and surprising.
This class uses the CI/TPRS approach but the story could be used in any first year classroom, mid-year or so. It could be used on a day with a substitute. Included is one page of "put the sentences in order" exercise with an answer key.
