5.Listen.Say the rhyme.
There once was a boy from Madrid. And can you guess what he did?
He slept very late And made his friends wait,And no noe liked what he did.
8.Listen.Fill in the time.
One day Rip Van Winkle didn't want to work,So he went walking in the woods.
There he met some funny little men who danced and sang:
Come,Van Winkle,dance and sing,You don't have to do a thing.
Having fun is what we do,We want you to have fun too.
Rip danced all day with the funny little men.
At the end of the day,he was very tired.He slept and he slept and he slept.
When he got up,all the little men were gone.
Rip went back to town.Everthing was different!
His house wasn't there!His friends weren't there!
Rip asked,"Where is everyone I know?"
A woman said,"Rip,you went away twenty years ago.Where did you go?"
He told the story about the funny little men.He told about sleeping.
"Rip"said the woman,"Look at your beard.It's all white.
You slept for twenty years!"
Malcolm's Saturday Morning
Malcolm usually sleeps late on w eekends,but today he got up early.
"Good morning,"said Mother."I am going shopping now.
Father is in the study working on the computer.
After breakfast,please wash your dishes and take out the garbage.
I will return in time to go to that movie we talked about."
Malcolm said good-bye to Mother.Then he went back to the kitchen.
Surprise!His breakfast was on the table an egg sandwich.
What a nice surprise,but what a mess!
"Hello,"someone said.Malcolm had never seen him before.
"Who are you?"Malcolm asked.
"My name is Red,"he said."I made you a sandwich.Enjoy it!"
"Thank you,"said Malcolm.
After Malcolm ate the sandwich he said,
"Great sandwich!Thanks.Now I will wash my dishes and take out the garbage."
"That is no fun,"Red said.
"Let's sing and dance!"So they sang and danced.
It was fun,but what a mess Red made!
Then Red said,"Your mother is home!Run and hug her.Then come back."
When Malcolm and Mother got back to the kitchen,Red was not there.
But the kitchen was clean,clean,clean.
Mother said,"This looks so good!You worked hard."
"Oh,no"said Malcolm."It was fun!"
