Based on a traditional song recited at the end of the Jewish Passover, this chain tale follows the eventful path of a goat through a village. A chain tale sets up a chain of reactions and causal events, with a focus on repetition of each event. Using the repetition alongside rhythm and rhyme, the words highlight the use of various past tense verbs, which can be difficult for some children. The questions in this resource have been designed to build on this, and focus heavily on verbs and verb tense. This is a recommended story for children developing their language skills, and for those with a good sense of humour.
