Your little brother likes to listen to stories. You have written an interesting story which you
would like to read to him. Read the text aloud .
Every morning, Johnny takes his flock of sheep to the fields to graze. He would sit
under a tree and watch the sheep lazily munch on the grass. After they had eaten, he
would round them up and walk home.
One day, Johnny saw a wolf at the edge of the field. However, it was some distance
away and it did not come nearer. Johnny at first stood guard against the wolf and kept a
strict watch over its movements.
But the wolf did not do anything. When Johnny herded the sheep and walked home
with his flock, the wolf quietly followed them at a distance.
This continued for a few days. Johnny would find the wolf waiting near the field
every morning.
One day, in the middle of grazing his sheep, Johnny felt very hungry. I think Ill
leave my sheep here and go home and grab a quick meal. I dont think that wolf will eat
my sheep, he said to himself.
When he came back, what did he find? The wolf had eaten most of his sheep.
Johnny broke down in tears.
In shock, Johnny sat down under a huge shady tree. Serves me right, he moaned
to himself, Why was I so stupid to trust a wolf?

It was a warm Saturday morning. Muthu woke up in a good mood. He was going to
the nursery with his father. As Muthu loved gardening, he enjoyed visiting Mr. Lees
nursery.
Muthu could see from the parking lot that the flowers and shrubs at the nursery
were already in full bloom. Muthus father rubbed his hands together, Lets go and do
some shopping, he said. Muthu pushed the shopping cart while his father piled things
into it. They bought ferns, flowers and fertilizer.
Muthus father held up a birdhouse. Should we get this? he asked Muthu. Muthu
shook his head. Lets make our own, he said.
They also decided to buy trays of young tomato and eggplant. Are you sure we
should get tomato? Muthu asked his father. Remember how the snails ate it all last
year?
His father sighed and nodded. Im going to spread sawdust this year. I heard that
it helps to keep the snails away.
Before paying, Muthu and his father spent some time walking around the nursery
looking at all the plants. After that, they drove home and spent the rest of the day
working in their garden. Muthu was tired when he went bed, but he was happy as the
garden looked beautiful.

You have been asked to tell a story during your weekly English Language society
meeting. You have written an interesting story which you would like to share with the
members. Read the text aloud.
One hot Sunday afternoon, Hamid, a 10-year old boy was walking past an ice
cream shop. He looked through the big window and saw many boys and girls
enjoying ice cream. Hamid entered the ice cream shop and sat at a table.
A waitress put a glass of water in front of him and handed him the menu.
Hamid pushed the menu aside. How much is an ice cream sundae? he asked the
waitress. Two ringgit, replied the waitress.
The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and counted the number of
coins in his palm. How much is a scoop of plain ice cream? he enquired.
Some people were now waiting for a table and the waitress was a bit
impatient. One ringgit and fifty sen, she said angrily.
The little boy again counted the coins. Ill have the plain ice cream, please,
he said.
The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away.
The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and departed. When the waitress
came back, she began wiping down the table and swallowed hard at what she saw.
There, placed neatly beside the empty bowl, was fifty sen her tip.
