Shark in the Park

on September 5, 2013

From the book by Nick Sharratt

I cut these images from card stock, and them laminated them to use on our overhead projector.

Down at the park a little boy is testing out his brand new toy.

Timothy Pope, Timothy Pope, is looking through his telescope.

He looks at the sky, he looks at the ground

He looks left and right, he looks all around and this is what he sees.

(I have a card stock page with just the hole cut out to lay over the other images)

What a nasty surprise! In his loudest voice Timothy cries,

“There’s a Shark in the Park!”

A shark?

Fancy that, it’s only a cat.

Timothy Pope, Timothy Pope, looks again through his telescope.

He looks at the sky, he looks at the ground

He looks left and right, he looks all around and this is what he sees.

What a terrible sight! Timothy yells with all his might,

“There’s a Shark in the Park!”

A shark? Oh no! It’s just a crow.

Timothy Pope, Timothy Pope, has one more look through his telescope.

He looks at the sky, he looks at the ground

He looks left and right, he looks all around and this is what he sees.

Tim’s has no doubt, what do you think he’s about to shout?

“There’s a Shark in the Park!”

A shark? Not, it’s not and aren’t you glad?

As a matter of fact, it’s Timothy’s dad!

“It’s time to go home Timothy.”

Timothy says “It’s safe to say. There are no sharks in the park today!”

(Then I slowly push the shark into view)

…”Quack!”

    This is beautiful! I love this story and made it into a flannel board. Too bad I can’t use a projector!!

  2. Wow!! This is terrific!

  3. Love this idea. We can’t order this book as I believe it’s out of print. This is a wonderful alternative and I’m definitely going to try it.
