READING
Read about Daniela's family. Then mark each statement True (T) or False (F).
My name is Daniela, and I have a large family! I have two brothers and two sisters. After my
mother died, my father remarried. His new wife has five children, too! She has four boys and
one girl. I really like my step-sister. Her name is Melanie and we are both 12 years old. That's
ten kids. Wait, there are 11 kids--I forgot my half-sister, Emma. My father and step-mother had
a child together. She's two years old and very cute. My step-brothers are 4, 6, 8, and 10. My
brothers and sisters are all teenagers.
We live in a big, Victorian house that has been in our family for a long time. My grandmother
(Dad's mom) lives with us, too. She's helps out a lot with the kids and she loves to cook. She
bakes lots of cookies and pies all the time. There are always other people staying with us, too.
Sometimes our house feels more like a hotel! Right now, my Dad's close friend Carl is visiting.
He doesn't have any children of his own, so he loves coming here and playing with us. My stepmother's co-worker Kathy is staying with us for a while. She has a little boy who is one. Emma
plays with him all day.
Our house is really noisy most of the time, and it certainly is crowded, but I dont mind that.
Ive always grown up with lots of people around me. It makes me feel secure to know theres
always someone around if I need help. All my brothers and sisters say the same thing.

_____ 31. The family is unusually large.


_____ 32. There are 11 children in the family.
_____ 33. Emma is Daniela's step-sister.
_____ 34. Carl and Kathy are members of the family.
_____ 35. Daniela finds the noise in her home annoying.
