To listen to the same story told to native kids, watch this video, starting at 1:45.

Since it was so loud in the cafe today we didn't record the stories, but maybe I can find time to do that at home. In the meantime, here are the readings for the 3 short stories we did today. Rewatching and rereading these stories is NEVER a waste. Don't make it a chore, but it can help you pick up a little new thing subconsciously every time. You can also watch the stories I told my kids in class here. It's all input, so it's all good. Language acquisition shouldn't feel hard, it should feel easy.
See you on the 13th!
