Ha ha! All stories have been recovered! You'll notice that most of the stories are very short and simple. This was done with intention -- each story, like a Touching Stories story was designed to be short and simple and focus on sensory element. In Karis' story, fuzzy fabric represented the animals she loved, nd strong smelling essential oil was the "medicine" she gave the sick animal.
RIDING MY UNCLE'S HORSES
When Karis was 10, she liked to hang out and be with animals. One day, one of the animals got sick. Karis was sad and worried. She helped the animal get medicine. The medicine worked. The animal got better.
POOH AND TIGGER AND RABBIT
EAT DIFFERENT CARROTS AND HONEY
Pooh and Tigger and Rabbit wanted to eat honey with their peanut butter, but they couldn't get the honey in the tree.
Tigger came to my house to get honey, which is how I found my friends. While Pooh and Tigger were talking, Rabbit grew carrots and red and green tomatoes and corn to eat. Pooh and Tigger and Rabbit and I got the honey in the tree and we ate it with the vegetables Rabbit grew!
Savannah chose to create a story based on one that she had already read. Using craft dough and pipecleaners, she created a full "cast" for her story, making a rabbit and tigger as well as carrots.
WIZARD OF OZ
Dorothy is in a new world call Oz. She is trying to get home, but there is a witch. Dorothy feels mad and scared. She kills the witch and goes home!
Katie's real passion was for acting the story out. She fashioned costumes and sound effects -- using a loud "Thunder Tube" for the witches voice and acting out her role as Dorothy, even singing some of the famous songs from the movie!
BY KATIE AND KELLY
This story was so interesting because it was so different from the others. A tragedy, Katie was really brave in her willingness to explore a dark story. Red yarn represented the injuried and a metal lunch box provided the dramatic crash.
The pictures seem to be lost. I will keep trying to retrieve them, but in the meantime, please enjoy these wonderful stories!
