Larry was unhappy to have forgotten his homework yet again this week. When his teacher reminded him he would have a study hall, Larry became very loud and disruptive. He didn’t feel he should have to stay in because he had done the work; he just forgot it on the kitchen counter.

Did you know that there is more than one spoken Chinese language? For thousands of years, someone who spoke only Cantonese (a dialect, or variation, of Chinese) could not understand someone who spoke Mandarin (a different dialect). Yet both could read the same writing. But if each read the same writing aloud, it sounded like two different languages. Puzzling, isn’t it? This happened because the Chinese language has evolved to include hundreds of dialects. These dialects sound as different from each other as English sounds from German. Yet written, they are all the same.

There is more than one spoken Chinese language, yet they are all written the same. The variations which have evolved into hundreds of dialects make it so they are difficult to understand when they are spoken, but not when they are read.

One Saturday morning Abby's Mum came upstairs to see Abby in her bedroom. Or tried to. There was so much mess on the floor she could only poke her head around the door. Abby sat in the middle of it all reading a book.      "What a tip," Mum said. "You need to have a clear up in here."      "Why?" Abby asked.      "Why?" Mum repeated. "Because things get broken or lost when they're all willy-nilly like this. Come on, have a tidy up now."      "But I'm very busy," Abby argued, "and it's boring on my own. Can't you help me?"      "No I can't, I'm busy too. But I'll give you extra pocket money if you do a good job."

On the next slide will be a connection. What kind of a connection do you see?

In the story, the mom is very busy and can’t help her daughter clean up her messy room. It reminds me of my own daughters. I get so busy that I usually don’t have time to help them clean, and they don’t like to do it without me. When I think about the character in the story, I really feel sorry for her because I know how my daughters must feel when I tell them I am too busy.

Outside, yellow, gold, and red leaves were leaping from swaying trees, landing on the roof, jumping off the roof, and then chasing one another down the street in tiny whirlwinds of merriment.      Tommy watched in fascination.      "If I was a leaf, I would fly clear across the world," Tommy thought and then ran out into the yard among the swirl of colors.      Mrs. Pennington came to the front porch.      "Tommy, I have your jacket. Please put it on."      However, there was no Tommy in the front yard.      "Tommy?"      Tommy was a leaf. He was blowing down the street with the rest of his play-mates.

On the next slide will be a connection. What kind of a connection do you see?

In the story about Tommy and the leaves, I thought about the story we read when the girl imagined she was flying over the houses on her rope swing. Both stories used imagination. It helped me to become part of the story and imagine myself flying.

A Fox once saw a Crow fly off with a piece of cheese in its beak and settle on a branch of a tree.      "That's for me, as I am a Fox," said Master Reynard, and he walked up to the foot of the tree.      "Good day, Mistress Crow," he cried. "How well you are looking today: how glossy your feathers; how bright your eye. I feel sure your voice must surpass that of other birds, just as your figure does; let me hear but one song from you that I may greet you as the Queen of Birds."      The Crow lifted up her head and began to caw her best, but the moment she opened her mouth the piece of cheese fell to the ground, only to be snapped up by Master Fox.      "That will do," said he. "That was all I wanted. In exchange for your cheese I will give you a piece of advice for the future: "Do not trust flatterers."

In a field one summer's day a Grasshopper was hopping about, chirping and singing to its heart's content. An Ant passed by, bearing along with great toil an ear of corn he was taking to the nest.      "Why not come and chat with me," said the Grasshopper, "instead of toiling and moiling in that way?"      "I am helping to lay up food for the winter," said the Ant, "and recommend you to do the same."      "Why bother about winter?" said the Grasshopper; "We have got plenty of food at present." But the Ant went on its way and continued its toil.      When the winter came the Grasshopper had no food and found itself dying of hunger - while it saw the ants distributing every day corn and grain from the stores they had collected in the summer. Then the Grasshopper knew: It is best to prepare for days of need.

A miser sold all that he had and bought a lump of gold, which he buried in a hole in the ground by the side of an old wall and went to look at daily. One of his workmen observed his frequent visits to the spot and decided to watch his movements. He soon discovered the secret of the hidden treasure, and digging down, came to the lump of gold, and stole it. The Miser, on his next visit, found the hole empty and began to tear his hair and to make loud lamentations. A neighbor, seeing him overcome with grief and learning the cause, said, "Pray do not grieve so; but go and take a stone, and place it in the hole, and fancy that the gold is still lying there. It will do you quite the same service; for when the gold was there, you had it not, as you did not make the slightest use of it."

A shepherd-boy, who watched a flock of sheep near a village, brought out the villagers three or four times by crying out, "Wolf! Wolf!" and when his neighbors came to help him, laughed at them for their pains.      The Wolf, however, did truly come at last. The Shepherd-boy, now really alarmed, shouted in an agony of terror: "Pray, do come and help me; the Wolf is killing the sheep"; but no one paid any heed to his cries, nor rendered any assistance. The Wolf, having no cause of fear, at his leisure lacerated or destroyed the whole flock.      There is no believing a liar, even when he speaks the truth.
