The Rich Man and the Shoemaker!

This week we read the story of “The Rich Man and the Shoemaker”

Is it better to be poor and happy or rich and sad? In this story, a cheerful shoemaker finds his own answer to this question when his wealthy neighbor tempts him with riches!

Mrs Thieme asked us if we could think of things that made us happy  but didn’t cost money!!!!!!

Wow this turned out to be a very difficult question for us! Some thought it was impossible!!!!!!! You just had to have money to be happy!

Some of us thought of things like our favourite foods but they do cost money!

After a lot of thinking we got the idea.

This is what some of us came up with! Some of us just found this question impossible!

Some of our answers  had Mrs Thieme laughing out loud!
