Your child should have brought home their envelope, retelling sheet and a “shimmering scale” to put in their treasure chest. Your child needs to write a detailed retelling of the story.

  1. There once was a fish who’s friends called him “rainbow fish” because his scales were so sparkly. His friends always asked him to play with them and he always ignored them. Then one day a little blue fish asked rainbow fish if he could have one of his scales. The rainbow fish told him no, he couldn’t have one. The blue fish was really sad and told his friends so after that all the other fish ignored him. Rainbow fished asked starfish if he could help him make his friends like him again. The star fish told him to go to the octopus in the dark cave. Rainbow fish went there but couldn’t find anyone and then all of a sudden two eyes popped out. He told rainbow fish he was waiting for him and then rainbow fished asked him the same question. The octopus told him to give each fish one of his shiny scales and he would have friends. So rainbow fish said I can’t give my scales away. If I do I won’t be the prettiest fish anymore. Then later the blue fish asked rainbow fish one more time if he could have a scale. The rainbow fish decided to give him the tiniest scale he had. The blue fish was so happy he started swimming around and then went and told all his friends that rainbow fish had given him a scale! Then rainbow fish gave a scale to every friend and only had one scale left!
