6 Skill Development/Guided Practice Rock Climbing One weekend I went to visit my aunt and uncle who lived in another town. My uncle was a rock climbing coach for an afterschool program in that town. He offered to take me rock climbing with the other kids in his group. I had never been rock climbing before. I was a little afraid of heights, and I was really afraid of looking foolish in front of other kids. I told my fears to my uncle. He told me that he understood my fears but that I would be safe at all times. I would be connected to a safety harness if I fell. My uncle also pointed out that I shouldn’t be worried about looking foolish. The other kids in this group had never rock climbed either. I felt a lot better after I heard this, and I looked forward to learning how to rock climb. Rock Climbing One weekend I went to visit my aunt and uncle who lived in another town.

7 Skill Development/Guided Practice Once when a Lion was asleep a little Mouse began running up and down upon him; this soon wakened the Lion, who placed his huge paw upon him, and opened his big jaws to swallow him. "Pardon, O King," cried the little Mouse: "forgive me this time, I shall never forget it: who knows but what I may be able to do you a turn some of these days?" The Lion was so tickled at the idea of the Mouse being able to help him, that he lifted up his paw and let him go. Some time after the Lion was caught in a trap, and the hunters who desired to carry him alive to the King, tied him to a tree while they went in search of a wagon to carry him on. Just then the little Mouse happened to pass by, and seeing the sad plight in which the Lion was, went up to him and soon gnawed away the ropes that bound the King of the Beasts.

9 Skill Development/Guided Practice HARE one day ridiculed the short feet and slow pace of the Tortoise, who replied, laughing: 'Though you be swift as the wind, I will beat you in a race.' The Hare, believing her assertion to be simply impossible, agreed to the proposal; and they agreed that the Fox should choose the course and fix the goal. On the day appointed for the race the two started together. The Tortoise never for a moment stopped, but went on with a slow but steady pace straight to the end of the course. The Hare, lying down by the wayside, fell fast asleep. At last waking up, and moving as fast as he could, he saw the Tortoise had reached the goal, and was comfortably dozing after her fatigue.

10 Skill Development/Guided Practice A New School Last summer my family moved to a new town. I missed my old house and my friends. The only familiar thing was my violin. I spent most of the summer in my room, playing the violin. My dad knew I was sad and missed my old friends. He came to meet me after my first day of school. He suggested we go back into school to meet the music teacher. Ms. Moore was friendly and happy to meet me. She encouraged me to join the school orchestra. When I went to the first orchestra meeting, I was nervous. Meg, a girl in my class, was there. She plays the violin, too. We sat together during the meeting. The next day, Meg invited me to eat lunch with her friends. Now that I’ve found other musicians, I think that I might enjoy this new school A New School Last summer my family moved to a new town.
