"The Little Orange House" Listening and Following Directions

The story begins with a witch who is searching for a suitable home for the winter and a piece of orange paper lands at her feet. She decides to make it into her home, by cutting out a roof, windows and doors from the paper. 

Read aloud the story (below) while your Little Listener  folds and cuts a piece of orange construction paper according to the directions in the story. When they’ve completed the activity, they’ll open the paper and find a surprise!

This story originally appeared in the 1982 issue of Highlights Magazine. 
My Mom who taught elementary school shared it with me years ago 
and I have used it each October  in Auditory Verbal Therapy.
