Grade 2 had a fun time listening to and illustrating the story “Sebastian's Roller Skates” by Caitlin Wachs. These are the blue shining and simmering abandoned skates that Sebastian found on a park bench.
Sebastian was a risk-taker and tried them on. At first, he fell and eventually he stood up. Shy Sebastian built up his self-confidence each day as he practiced more.
One day, a lady's dog got away from her and Sebastian grabbed the leash.
They went for quite a spin and this event helped Sebastian become an excellent skater.
Sebastian bought a new pair of skates and he put the old skates back where he had found them. He got the courage to ask a girl to go skating with him. A little knowledge goes a long way!
