The Glass — Cycle 51+


Sam the Ram and Reid the Dog are going out to play golf. They buy a bag of golf balls from Ross the Cat's stand. Reid hits the first ball as hard as he can, but the ball accidentally shatters the glass window of Ross's booth. Reid apologizes and pays for a new window.  Ross forgives him and advises him to hit the ball a little softer next time.

This booklet is designed for kindergarten students to read independently after they have reached the cycle indicated on the cover.

This file is designed to be printed, folded, stapled, and given to students as a booklet.  

  • Step 1: To print, select “print on both sides of the paper” and “flip on the short edge” in your print menu.  
  • Step 2: Fold the printed pages along the dashed line in the center, and staple on top of the three staple images on the front cover.

When one student finishes reading the booklet, you can pass it on to the next student who is ready for it.  Or you can create one copy for each student and tell them that they can color the pictures when they finish reading it.
