Addressing Low Proficient learners - 6
The ostrich reached near a tree.
‘No stone will fall on me now,’ said the ostrich.
Just then a huge stone ball fell near him.
The ostrich jumped up in fear.
He reached at the bottom of a hill.
‘I will run up the hill,’ said the ostrich.
The Rolling Stone
Suddenly a stone ball came rolling down the hill.
The frightened ostrich jumped up.
The ostrich took a U- turn in the air.
The ostrich ran as fast as he could down the hill.
The huge stone ball came rolling down after him.
A Heap of Stones
The ostrich reached near a heap of stones.
He turned his head.
The Stone Trap
A heavy stone ball hit and rolled over him
The heavy stones rolled around and trapped him.
Poor ostrich! He could not do anything.
The rooster came flying to the heap of stones.
He sat on one of the stones and called the elephant.
The elephant came near.
He lifted the ostrich with his trunk.
And he started swinging the ostrich.
‘Please, don’t throw me away,’ said the ostrich.
A Cruel Game
The elephant threw the ostrich like a stone ball using all his force.
The ostrich crash landed on the ground with his head down.
The elephant was playing a game.
What a cruel game!
