Hello Colleagues, this time I want to share with you two short stories to work with your students.

Hope you find them useful.

Bye :)


    Emma loves listening to her brother Jake playing his guitar. He is 15 years old and has been playing since he was 5 years old. He practices every day, and he is really good. He plays country music and rock and roll.

    Emma likes the country songs best. She really likes watching Jake strum the chords and hearing the country sounds that he creates. Emma wants to take lessons so she can play as well as Jake does. “Mom, can I take guitar lessons?” Emma asks.

Her mom replies, “It takes a lot of hard work to play the songs that Jake plays; are you sure you have enough time to put into practicing?”

    Thinking about all of her favorite activities, Emma isn’t sure. She loves her ballet classes, her art classes, and her chess club. Emma realizes that if she wants to play guitar, she will probably have to give up another activity to make time for practicing. She does not know which activity she would give up because they all mean so much to her. 

Emma decides that she will just keep enjoying her brother’s guitar playing for now.

Answer the Questions:

1. How long has Jake been playing the guitar?

2. What type of music does Emma like best?

3. What does Emma ask her mom?

4. What activity is Emma involved in?



    Lily and her brother Ryan went camping with their mom and dad. Ryan and Dad set up the tent while Lily and Mom collected sticks to start a bonfire.

    Once the tent was set up, they started a fire in the bonfire pit. Lily and Ryan looked for long pointy sticks to use for cooking hot dogs over the fire while the fire was heating up. They found four perfect sticks, one for each of them.

Lily and Ryan, and their mom and dad, each placed two hot dogs on their sticks. They held the hot dogs over the fire and turned the sticks slowly so every side of each hot dog was cooked. Then they put the hot dogs into buns and added ketchup and mustard. The hot dogs were delicious.

After they all enjoyed their hot dogs, Lily got out the marshmallows for dessert. They all roasted marshmallows over the fire until the marshmallows turned a nice shade of brown. Then they popped the yummy treats into their mouths.

Sitting around the bonfire and eating marshmallows is Lily and Ryan’s favorite part of camping.

Answer the Questions:

1. What did Lily and Mom do while Ryan and Dad set up the tent?

2. What did they all cook over the bonfire to eat for dinner?

3. What did Lily get out for dessert?

4. What is Lily and Ryan’s favorite part of camping?
