mom31257 Posted January 21, 2012 Share Posted January 21, 2012 Ds was to read a fable/story, write a key word outline of the story, then write it in his own words. Certain verbs were banned, so I had him write it and go back and replace those banned verbs with other choices. I also had him correct spelling/capitalization errors. Belling the Cat Once upon a time there was a family of mice that had a big house. When the people slept, the mice dashed into the kitchen to eat the food. One day the family brought home a cat. Whenever the mice ran out, the cat ate them. "We need to do something about that cat," the mice chattered. One little mouse squeaked, "We need to tie a bell around the cat's neck." "Good idea," they all yelled. The oldest and wisest one of them all asked, "And who will tie the bell around the cat's neck?" No one talked any more.
