One day Jim wakes up to find a huge beanstalk outside his garden. He climbs up and meets an ugly giant, one that is bald, has no teeth and has a poor eye sight.
Jim, unlike Jack in ‘Jack and the Beanstalk‘, decides to be a helper. He brings back a red wig, false teeth and gigantic, round glasses. The giant is all happy and feels new again. At the very end the giant says ‘fried boy’, Jim takes the wrong idea and runs for his life and chops the beanstalk with an axe! Later, he hears a boom and a thank you letter and a gold coin appear for his hard work!
We really liked this story. We enjoyed it a lot. We acted out, we laughed and we learned some new vocabulary and expressions in English. Enjoy and learn: what a fantastic session!
Thank you, Mary. You’re a great storyteller. Hope to see you again soon!
