(An activity to introduce the topic of the story.)

Have a class discussion, in L 1 if necessary, about food and not having food. Ask the pupils who they would go to if they needed food. Also ask what friends are for, etc.


Use the story cards to present the story.

Play the CD. The pupils listen and follow along in their books. Play the CD again. The pupils repeat, chorally and/or individually.







Summary: The field mouse is taking some food to his baby mice but he doesn’t realise that there’s a hole in his sack. By the time he arrives home, there’s no food left. The field mouse is very upset. He asks for food from Mr Rabbit, Mrs Parrot and Mr Tortoise. His friends give him food and now there’s a lot of food for the field mouse and his baby mice. The field mouse wants to show his gratitude to his friends. Next summer, he gathers food to give back to them to thank them.


Put up the story cards in random order. Ask the pupils to come and put the cards in the right order. Play the CD for verification.

Assign roles and allow the pupils, in groups, some time to rehearse. Ask the groups to act out the story. They can use the story cards for help.

Have a discussion, in L 1 necessary, about the moral of the story. Tell the pupils that though we may need and ask for help, we should always return the favour, otherwise we would become selfish. Here, the mouse needed food for his family, but in the end, he never forgot his friends who helped him.

Before going into class

Hand out the paper and guide them through the drawing and cutting of the card Finally, help them write the sentence. Thank you (for all the food! Love, Mr Mouse).
