This first one is called "George and Rosemary". It won an academy award for best animated short and read the blurb about it below.
First, let the students watch and ask them to write down 5 verbs/actions that are important to the story. Then,use the ppts to retell the story. First let the students try by using the one with only pictures. Then, read together.
George and Rosemary was the inspiration for the "Mr. Morton" video. Play the song and practice the past tense!
George and Rosemary is an animated romantic comedy about two golden agers who prove that passion is not exclusively for the young. With humour and empathy, it tells of George Edgecombe's passion for the lady across the street, and what happens when he decides to stop daydreaming and finally meet Rosemary Harris, the object of his affections.
