A certain
Country was ruled by kindhearted
King who would do anything for his subjects but at last he noticed
That they were going lazy and seldom did anything for them selves or for each other the king wondered if there was anyone left in the kingdom who would go out of his way to help his neighbors .so he concocted a plan .
Late one night the king went to the main road of the kingdom and rolled a huge stone right smack into the middle of it
Then he secretly placed a bag of gold under the stone the next morning he did hid near the road watch First a women came by on her way to market because of the stone she had to walk in the mud at the side of the road someone should really move that stone she snapped angrily next two students passed by on their way to school what a nuisance they cried why doesn't the king move that rock out of the road ?and so it continued all day long some people blamed the king the stone and some even hit the stone as they walked around it as the sun was about to set a young girl passed by when she saw the stone she stopped I'd better get out of the road she said someone might pass by here after dark and not see the stone and bump into it
The girl pushed and pushed the stone a man walking by said let the king take care of that but the girl kept pushing until at last the stone began to roll and it rolled over the edge of the road and down a hill it was then that she saw the bag of gold the king had left here everyone agreed that the girl deserved the gold and everyone was more than a little bit ashamed that the girl had not thought of moving the stone after that they began helping each other instead of waiting for the king to do things for them Circle time --song/activity
