O&M Story Time

I found out last minute that I was going to have to conduct an on campus lesson for an elementary school student I always took to the neighborhood near his school. I wanted to come up with a fun lesson so that my student would not be bored and I wanted a way to keep him fully engaged.

My solution….write a short story about him to fill out that was packed with vocabulary and skills we had been practicing out in the neighborhood.

This is a lesson that can be modified for any O&M concepts which I think is always a plus!

Here is the story….
