Sample Text From Teacher Owl’s Class

They were all gathered in the classroom. The learners sat on two logs under a blue sky with flecks of white cloud. It was not far from a stream. Teacher Owl looked at the class.

Teacher Owl's ClassSnail looked left and right on her log. She was just trying to see what Miss Owl saw. There was Hare, Leguaan, the Honeyguide and Daliso the cat. “Learners”, said Teacher Owl, to the class, “Settle down. I know it’s nearly the end of the school day. I want to give you your homework for tomorrow. It’s about knowing where you and your family come from.”

Teacher Owl explained what they needed to do. She usually tried to make sure the learners understood everything. She wanted to tell them one more time, so they would remember. But some of the learners were already sliding off the logs to go home. “Goodbye,” Teacher Owl said. “Have a safe journey home”. Snail was still on the log. She wondered if anyone even heard Teacher Owl say goodbye.

***

The next day, in the morning, the learners gathered in the class. Daliso the cat

arrived just as everyone was saying: “Good morning teacher”. Then they sang one of their favourite songs:

“We are the learners from the valley We like to learn
We are the learners
It’s our turn”

“We the learners of the valley do ‘words’ and ‘sums’
for us learning and passing
is so much fun.”

  • Hi
    I work with Women with a Mission a volunteering group based in Pattaya Thailand.
    We have been working on a Remote Reading programme with migrant children from Myanmar. These books are great and we will get the children to read and understand them. I wanted the authors know that their books are being used for a worthy cause.
    This is a great site
