Children form a circle and each child holds something like a pencil or piece of paper or candy. Each time left is said the item is passed to the left. Each time right is said the item is passed to the right. When the story ends, the item held is theirs. Example: if all have a piece of candy but one item is chocolate, than that item is theirs at the end of the story. This story can be used for holidays like Christmas and hold presents or for birthdays, Easter, etc. Enjoy the Left Family story!
A Special Time for the Left Family
Mr. and Mrs. Left
were celebrating their special day today.
It was Left’s fifth
anniversary. They chose the right restaurant to go to
celebrate. It was their favorite Italian
restaurant not far from Left’s
house. Their children, Mary Left, John Left, and Peter Left
planned the whole event. Also, the 6PM
time was the right time to go before
it became crowded.
Some of the other family and friend members asked for
directions. The children wanted the
family and friends to have the right
direction and not get lost: go 3 miles
to Center Street, make a left, go
another 3 blocks, stay in the left
lane and make another left turn on 4th
Street, take 4th Street to Heart Avenue and make a right, go 2 blocks and you will see the
Italian restaurant on your left,
make a left turn into the parking
lot. Make sure you stay in the right side of the parking lot because
there is more than one restaurant there and park in the right side of the parking lot.
The tables are located in back of the restaurant but ask for Mr. Right, the manager, when you go
in. You will see all the names on the
tables for your seating. It was not long
when Mom Left and Dad Left entered. They were surprised to see many family
members and friends attending and seated around the table. Of course, the
children were seated next to mom and dad left:
Mary Left, John Left, and Peter Left. They sat on the right side of the table.
Grandpa Left sat on the left side of the table. Next to him were Grandpa and Grandma Right.
Yes, the owner of the Italian Restaurant! Mr. and Mrs. Left’s closest friends filled the rest of the table. Seated was Sam who is Mr. Left’s boss; Susie who was Mr. Left’s co-worker. Mr. Left’s brother came late, Barry Left, along with Mrs. Left’s sister, Susie. They all had a great celebration for the 5th
anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Left. That’s the story of the celebration for Mr.
and Mrs. Left. Did I get that all right!
