I have seen the lark soar high at morn Heard his song up in the blue I have heard the blackbird pipe his note The thrush and the linnet too But there's none of them can sing so sweet My singing bird as you. If I could lure my singing bird From his own cozy nest If I could catch my singing bird I would warm him on my breast For there's none of them can sing so sweet My singing bird as you. My singing bird as you. My singing bird as you. Look for this song in youtube, find it and learn after translating it.

“The Zoo”

Writing Practice – Finish the Story (5)

Directions: Read the story below. Then finish it with your own writing.

Today I am going on a class field trip to the zoo. I have never been to the zoo before and I am excited to see all of the animals. My teacher says that it is going to be a busy day. We have been learning about animals in class. My favorite animal is the elephant. I hope that I get to see one. We are boarding the bus. I sit in the back of the bus with my friends. The ride is about thirty minutes long. We are walking through the gate. I am in a group with five of my classmates and my teacher. The zoo is very crowded with lots of students from other schools. I hope that I will not get lost from my group. First, we visit the monkeys. They come to the edge of their cages and look at us. The monkeys have a lot of trees to climb on in their cages. One monkey is eating a banana. They look like they are having a lot of fun. I wonder what it would be like to play with them. Next, we visit the polar bears. They live in an area that has a lot of big rocks and a pond. Most of them are sleeping right now. The polar bears are a lot bigger than I imagined them being! My teacher says that we are going to see the elephants now. We walk for a long time until we finally get to a big field. I can see the elephants in the distance! There are two big elephants and one baby. They are starting to walk in our direction. Maybe I will get a closer look at them. _______________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________
