STEP 1: LISTEN TO THE AUDIOSTEP 2: STUDY VOCABULARY
Yesterday was my first day at a new school. I made a few friends. I am usually the tallest kid in my class, but there was a boy taller than me. I really like my new teacher. She is very nice. She is nicer than my former teacher. My former teacher was the meanest teacher at school. I don't miss her at all. Today, I met a very pretty girl. She is the prettiest girl in my class. Our teacher assigned writing partners. She was my partner. We had to write a paragraph about ourselves. My story was longer than one paragraph. I wrote about moving to a new neighborhood. It was the scariest experience. I also wrote that it was colder here than my old city. I am used to hot weather, so I will have to buy warmer clothes. At lunchtime, I sat with a group of boys. We talked about playing basketball after school. We played with some boys that were younger than us. After playing outside, I had to finish my homework. It was harder than I expected. So I stayed up past my bedtime. I hope I can wake up on time. I am walking to school with my new friends. Walking to school is shorter than riding the bus. The school bus makes too many stops. I really like my new school. I am having the greatest time.
