The BEGINNING says where and when a story happens and who the people or
characters are.
The MIDDLE tells what happens to these people.
The CONCLUSION tells how the story ends.
Read the story below. It has a beginning and a conclusion but no middle.

SALLY'S PROBLEM

what the teacher said because she was thinking about her big problem .........

be nicer on a hot summer's day?"
I go with my friends to a pool party, in this place selling delicious cool
drinks, food and good company. I go for a walk to the beach.

Nicknames are used to describe people, places or things. They can help create
identities, build unity and help people feel a sense of pride in their community.
Some years ago, marketing and advertising experts were asked to choose the
best nickname for an American cities. The winner was the nations biggest city,
New York. The nickname they chose was The Big Apple.
Where did the nickname Big Apple originally come from? In the nineteen
seventies, New York suffered from image problems. The number of visitors was
falling. A campaign was launched to give the city a new image and a new
nickname. The New York board chose the nickname The Big Apple
It was not the first time the nickname had been used to describe the city. A
journalist for a New York newspaper had used the name The Big Apple to
name New York in the nineteen twenties.
The Big Apple was also the city of a night club in the Harlem area of New York City
in the nineteen thirties, as well as the name of a popular dance and hit song
around that time.

The Big Apple is not the only nickname for Americas biggest city. Almost one
hundred nicknames that describe New York have been recorded. Some of the
best known nicknames for New York are The Capital of the World, Empire City,
Gotham, The City So Nice They Named it Twice and The City That Never
Sleeps.
