Carlas Best Friend by: Dolores Sim Garcia and Josefina Reyes

Carla and Guard are best friends. Carla is a kind, happy girl. Guard is Carlas dog. Carla was seven when she first saw Guard. He was a stray puppy, thin and dirty. He looked sad and hungry. Carla took pity on Guard. She brought him home. From Carla, Mother learned the puppys sad story. She took pity on Guard, too. Thank you, Mother! I knew you would understand, Carla hugged her mother. Mother and Carla made Guard feel welcome. Mother gave Guard a good bath while Carla prepared his food.

Now, Carla is ten. Guard has grown very big. His fur shines because Carla takes good care of him. Guard is one of the finest dogs in the neighborhood.

There are many tricks that Guard can do. He and Carla are often seen playing ball. Carla tosses the ball far and Guard runs and picks it up. Guard sees Carla off to school. He barks as Carla gets up the school bus. Carla waves her hand, Goodbye, Guard!

In the afternoon, Guard knows when Carla is coming home from school. He waits for her. He carries her bag with his mouth while Carla skips beside him. They are a happy pair and people love to see them together. Its a Saturday morning, market day for Mother. Carla and Guard are alone in the house. Mother knows Carla is safe with Guard around. Carla is trying to reach for the jar of sweets. Guard waits. He knows Carla will surely give him a share. All too soon, Carla falls and lies hurt on the floor. The neighbor next door is surprised. Guard is there scratching and barking loud. He is facing the open door of Carlas house.

The neighbor hurries and finds Carla badly hurt. He brings Carla to the clinic nearby. Guard follows sadly.

What a loyal dog! Those who see the very unhappy dog exclaimed. He cares a lot for Carla, others say. Carla is now safe. Mother is thankful to the neighbor, most of all to Guard. Everybody is proud of Guard. Carla wishes to be home so she can be with her best friend. 3. Analysis and Discussion a. Ask some questions about the story. Who is Carlas best friend? How did Carla show her concern for Guard? What happened to Carla while her mother was in the market? How does Guards action show concern for Carla? You have a best friend. In what ways does your best friend show his/her concern for you? How do you also show your concern for your best friend? b. Go back to the previous activity at the start of the lesson. Guide the pupils in finding out if their ideas match with the ideas in the story. Group Activities: Activity I Arranging events that happened in the story using pictures.

The Helpful Boy and the Alligator

There was once an alligator that got trapped in a swamp. As alligators are known to be killers, no one wanted to get near them. One day, a boy who was catching crabs nearby saw the trapped alligator. He pitied the animal but he also remembered what his parents told him about alligators. Every day, the boy came to watch the alligator from the bank. The more he watched the animal, the more he pitied it.

Then one day, the boy decided to let the alligator go. He cut the rope that held the animal to set it free. The alligator was very happy. To thank the boy for letting it free, every morning the alligator caught crabs and brought them to the bank. The boy could only thank the alligator for helping him, too. -Adapted Ask each group to present their work to the class. Evaluation of each group work will be done by the teacher with the participation of the class. Enrichment Eric the Engine and the Railway E:\stories\story-15.htm
