How the Bear Lost His Tail
"We all know how bears are, don't we?"
Bears are big, hairy and grumpy, with short, stumpy tails.
Bears weren’t always like that though.
Once, long ago, bears were different.
They were still big and hairy, but they were sweet and kind, and had long, fluffy tails.
Bears were proud of their tails in those days.
How did the bear get a stumpy tail?
Why are they so grumpy now?
Fox is to blame.
"Let me tell you what Fox did."
Fox was trotting about one cold day, looking for something to eat.
He saw a fisherman by a frozen lake, dangling a line through a hole in the ice.
The fisherman had caught a lot of fish.
They were lying in the snow, tied together with string.
Fox was hungry.
Fox was sly and quick. He sneaked up, grabbed the string of fish, and ran as fast as he could!
In the forest, he met Bear.
Bear was hungry too.
He waved his long, fluffy tail and said, “Oh, Fox! Where did you get all those fish from?”
Fox saw that Bear’s tail was even longer and fluffier than his.
Fox did not like that one bit.
He did not want to share his fish either.
So Fox said, “I caught them!”
“How?” asked Bear.
“All you have to do is break a hole in the ice on the lake,” said Fox.
“Then sit down and put your tail in the water.”
“It will be cold!” said Bear.
“Yes, but you will catch a lot of fish! Sit still, and the fish will come and nibble your tail,”said Fox.
“It might hurt, but don’t pull your tail out, or you will lose the fish! Your tail is so long, you will catch even more than I did!”
“Oh, thank you, Fox!” said Bear.
“Remember, don’t pull your tail out too soon!” Fox said …… and he ran on, with his stolen fish.
Bear went down to the frozen lake.
He did everything Fox had said.
He broke a hole in the ice, and put his long, fluffy tail in the icy water.
It tingled. The water was cold! The tingling got worse as the fish began to bite. But Bear kept his tail in the water, just as Fox had said to do.
“Ouch!”
The water in the lake was so cold, the hole behind Bear began to freeze over again.
But Bear did not see.
Bear had to grit his teeth.
The more it tingled, the more fish he thought he was catching.
But soon it was too much for Bear.
“I don’t care if I lose my fish. This hurts too much!”he thought.
He tried to pull his tail out of the water.
But his tail had frozen! It snapped off like an icicle, leaving nothing but a stump.
“Fox had made a fool of him.”
He did not even have any fish.
From that day to this, all bears have had short, stumpy tails.
They are grumpy because they think everyone is laughing at them.
And Fox?
Fox is still as quick and sly and clever as ever.
Bear, on the other hand, has learned that he shouldn’t believe everything he is told.

学员印象

王辰宇(Alan)同学是这次“悦读彩虹”活动中走进录音棚的唯一一位南京学员,更是阅读打卡积分榜得分最高的同学。聪明伶俐的王辰宇,在录音开始前,一直安静地坐在休息区阅读自己带来的绘本。录制过程中,对自己要求非常严格,每个单词发音都力求完美。让我们一起来期待一下王辰宇同学的英文故事吧。

21天阅读打卡中有哪些故事?
辰宇妈妈:
21天阅读打卡活动分为两部分,第一部分为跟读评分,内容简单、形式有趣,比较容易坚持;第二部分为自由阅读,对小朋友的耐心和自觉性是非常大的挑战。我们和王辰宇(Alan)同学一起选择了Magic Tree House系列图书的第一册Dinosaurs Before Dark英文章节体小说,共十章。
故事非常有趣,Alan也非常愿意完成每天的阅读,可是难度在于每天需要同时完成读书笔记,这对于他是一次全新的挑战。刚开始Alan有点无从下手,我们就建议Alan采用语文课上老师教的日记写作方法,采用“When”, “Where”, “Who”, “What happened”这几个大问题来总结每天的阅读内容。
虽然每天完成读书笔记成为最耗时的部分,但在爸爸妈妈的鼓励下,辰宇努力坚持完成了这次挑战。读书笔记累积成册,清晰地记录了他这21天的成长。

录音准备过程中有什么趣事吗?
辰宇妈妈:
这次是Alan第一次走进录音棚体验录音。收到通知后,Alan微笑地点了点头,故作平静,可是在同学和小伙伴面前,他还是会忍不住内心的小冲动,有意无意地流露出一丝小骄傲,告诉他们:“我要去录音了!”。Alan自己完成了绘本的挑选后,每天晚上都会利用点读笔完成跟读。
借此契机,我们发现孩子是真的爱上了朗读故事这件事,他会为了做好这一件事自发主动地去认真、去努力,我和辰宇爸爸感到非常欣慰。
虽然在正式录音前的两天才发现故事内容有些重复,但Alan没有一点怨言,立刻重新选了其他故事,重新投入准备,这样的成长令我们骄傲!

期间有没有获得老师指导呢?
辰宇妈妈:
我们非常感谢Jessica老师在课后专门为Alan提供的发音纠错指导,同时也感谢Ms. Hunter专门为Alan进行的语调指导,感谢E PLUS北外壹佳英语南京北京东路校区整个教学团队一直以来对Alan付诸的关心。我们切身感受到整个E PLUS北外壹佳英语大家庭的温暖,衷心为老师们点赞。
知识的学习会让孩子们迅速成长,良好习惯的养成更会让他们终生受益。这次活动,帮助小朋友们养成爱看书、爱读书的好习惯。将“坚持”养成“习惯”,同时让他们变得更加自信。

孩子参与录音后有哪些收获呢?
辰宇妈妈:
辰宇录音前主动、积极,录音过程中有些兴奋、紧张,录音后反而出奇的淡定。因为辰宇的前期努力准备让他在录音棚只读了两遍就顺利完成录音任务。虽然辰宇的发音、语调还有不足,但是小朋友学会了坚持、努力、认真、自信,这样成长式的收获就是我们家长最期望的。

对于孩子成长,有哪些经验分享?
辰宇妈妈:
在读书、选书方面,我们一直尽力去找一些辰宇感兴趣的书籍,每天都鼓励辰宇能够大声朗读出来,不重时间长短,重在坚持,培养习惯。在读的过程中,我们会为辰宇尽量营造朗读、阅读气氛,经常是一家三口一起读书,走进孩子的世界,和他一起讨论故事内容。当然,光读书也不够,还要让孩子多听,重复听让孩子模仿语音、语调。多鼓励,多表扬,赞赏式的教育会事半功倍。
