You saved your luncheon money?


Will wonders never cease?

Your face is clean for once, dear.

No rage or hullabaloo.

Now were you struck by lightning


Or were you stunned at sport?

Today you are a lamb, love,


Where yesterday a rebel.

Suggestions to gain money for the fair.

Dear Lee,
I heard that youre feeling very upset because you
have not enough money to go to the fair with Sam and Raj.
I know youve been waiting to ride on the big wheel and to
eat lots of candy floss.
However, I think you should do some jobs so you can
have enough money to go to the fair. In my opinion, you
can get some money by being a baby sitter because I know
youre really good at taking care of children. Other than
that, you can also help your neighbour to mow their yard. I
hope you can rethink my idea and will have some money
for the fair! I am looking forward to hear from you soon.

CONCLUSION
This module shows that teachers from Jempol
and Jelebu can work hand in hand in order to
come out with great ideas for development of
English language. Hence, with fun activities to
do during literature lessons, hopefully students
will find English as an enjoyable subject.
Teachers collaboration is said to bring great
results. Therefore more collaboration between
teachers from Jempol and Jelebu is to be carried
out from time to time in order to produce more
creative lesson plans that will be used in the
classrooms
