Teacher direction: You are going to listen to two different representations of a story. One is a story, the other is a skit. As I read, think about how the story and skit are different.
Bob got up early. He saw a box on the table. Was it for him or for Greg? He did not know. He peeked inside. It was a new ball. Bob had to wait for Mom to wake up so he could ask if the ball was for him. Bob’s Present (skit)
Bob: What is in this box? A brand new ball!
Greg: Put that ball down!
Mom: That ball is for Greg. How is the story different from the skit?

Jack: Cool! I got a dog! Let’s play with him!
Juan: Oh no! I left my glove on the bench and now it’s gone!
Jack: There’s your dad, tell him!
Juan: Dad, I lost my glove!
Dad: NO, son. I found your glove. How is the skit different from the skit?
