This story is about a cat named Pike. Kimmi, Tina, and Rockee look for Pike in four places. They find the cat “in, “on”, and “under” different things in the living room. There is a dramatic rescue when Rockee brings Pike down from a tree and then a happy ending. There are activity pages at the end with three cats in the living room, sentence strips highlighting place/preposition, and coloring pages.

Story activities have been designed to provide:
-imagery that clearly depicts story elements and events
-basic, constrained text and visual simplicity (no audio or video)
-the story grammar of characters, settings and events
-sequence of events that creates the story
-errorless learning with many or all choices that are correct
These activities are best used in an individual or small group setting with a therapist, instructor or parent. Emphasis is placed primarily on visual display of key elements so that the cognitive and linguistic aspects of the story are communicated to children who are developing thinking and language skills. Learners in the early stages of development can explore the words and ideas that tell a story and enhance vocabulary development.
