Sam Stays Home. A Story for Children About the Pandemic.



We are a fine motor, pre-writing and handwriting website.  But, when the world is turned upside down by a pandemic, our children get worried and anxious.  Helping them to understand what this is all about, can help to reduce their anxiety.  And when they are in a better place, making a fine motor pizza or monster can be a whole lot of fun.  We are all worried and stressed.  This little story about Sammy geared for interactive reading may help your children to feel better.

Sammy, our friend, he couldn’t go out,
He lay round the house like a bit of a lout.
His mom and his dad were stressed as could be,
The end of this nightmare he wished he could see.

The problem, a virus, so mean we agree,
It makes people sick, so sick as can be.
All round the world, people take care,
To stay in their houses: it is quite a scare.

There’s lots we don’t know, about this new bug,
Like why it’s so bad and behaves like a thug.
But scientists are working and finding a cure,
It may take a while but they’ll get there for sure.
