Meet the Letter S This is a story about the letter S. To make uppercase S, you start here and make a curve this way and then a curve back this way. To make lowercase s, make a curve this way and then a curve back this way. Some words that start with the letter S are . . . Snake Seal Spaceship Now, here’s our story! Sally the snake and Steven the seal are best friends. One day, Sally and Steven decide to build a spaceship to go visit a distant star. Sally slithered to her woodshop to get spaceship supplies. She scooped up screws and a saw. Steven skipped to the store to get sandwiches for their trip. They met back up and started making their spaceship. Sally built the ship and painted it sparkly silver. Steven built seats. Sally tried to use her screws to attach the seats, but the screws didn’t fit—they kept slipping. Sally and Steven didn’t know what to do! They needed seats for their spaceship! They called over to their friend Sam the sloth to help them out, and then he started slinking over sooooo sloooooowly. While they were waiting for Sam, Sally figured it out. She screamed, “I’ve got it!” and speedily slithered back to her woodshop. “Oh, silly me!” Sally said. “I took size seven screws, but I needed size six screws!” Sally slithered back with the size six screws and screwed in the seats. The spaceship was ready, and ZOOM—blasted off! Sam the sloth arrived just in time to say “BYYYYYYE!” Steven steered the ship all the way past the sun to a spectacular star, where they ate their scrumptious sandwiches. The End. S! What S words did you hear in the story?
