    A Fox once saw a Crow fly off with a piece of cheese in its beak and settle on a branch of a tree.
    "That's for me, as I am a Fox," said Master Reynard, and he walked up to the foot of the tree.
    "Good day, Mistress Crow," he cried. "How well you are looking today: how glossy your feathers; how bright your eye. I feel sure your voice must surpass that of other birds, just as your figure does; let me hear but one song from you that I may greet you as the Queen of Birds."
    The Crow lifted up her head and began to caw her best, but the moment she opened her mouth the piece of cheese fell to the ground, only to be snapped up by Master Fox.
    "That will do," said he. "That was all I wanted. In exchange for your cheese I will give you a piece of advice for the future: "Do not trust flatterers."
    QUESTIONS:
    What did the crow take in its beak?
    How were the eyes of the crow, according to the fox?
    What advice did the wolf give the crow?

    Harry is a white dog with black spots who loves everything...except baths. So one day before bath time, Harry runs away. He plays outside all day long, digging and sliding in everything from garden soil to pavement tar. By the time he returns home, Harry is so dirty he looks like a black dog with white spots. His family doesn’t even recognize him!
    ABOUT THE READER
    Although best known as the crafty Sue Ann Nivens on the classic sitcom Mary Tyler Moore and the ditzy Rose Nylund on The Golden Girls,
    Betty White had been in television for a long, long time before those two shows, having had her own series, life with Elizabeth in 1952. Betty has been inducted into the Television Hall of Fame and is known for her tireless efforts on behalf of animals.
    About the authorGene Zion was born in 1913. He attended the New School of Social Research and the Pratt Institute. Gene Zion is best known for his creation of the rascally dog, Harry, about whom he wrote several favorite stories. Gene Zion and Margaret Bloy Graham collaborated on four books about Harry: Harry the Dirty Dog, Harry by the Sea, Harry and the Lady Next Door, and No Roses for Harry.
    These books are noted for their child’s eye view of the world, where things that are important to the very young are depicted, and youngsters learn that things can work out when they ‘sit’ plants, or try to save the only ‘summer’ snowman. He died in 1975.
    Some Other Books BY Gene Zion:“No Roses for Harry!”“Harry and the Lady Next Door”“Harry by the Sea” “All Falling Down” “The Summer Snowman”“The Sugar Mouse Cake” “Dear Garbage Man” “Really Spring” “The Plant Sitter”

    READING 5
    {An old dog or a puppy.doc}
    Who Did Patrick's Homework?
    Patrick never did homework. "Too boring," he said. He played baseball and basketball and Nintendo instead. His teachers told him, "Patrick! Do your homework or you won't learn a thing." And it's true, sometimes he did feel like a ding-a-ling.
    {http://www.magickeys.com/books/patrick/paw.gif}
    But what could he do? He hated homework.
    Then on St. Patrick's Day his cat was playing with a little doll and he grabbed it away. To his surprise it wasn't a doll at all, but a man of the tiniest size. He had a little wool shirt with old fashioned britches and a high tall hat much like a witch's. He yelled, "Save me! Don't give me back to that cat. I'll grant you a wish, I promise you that."
    Patrick couldn't believe how lucky he was! Here was the answer to all of his problems. So he said, "Only if you do all my homework 'til the end of the semester, that's 35 days. If you do a good enough job, I could even get A's."
    The little man's face wrinkled like a dishcloth thrown in the hamper. He kicked his legs and doubled his fists and he grimaced and scowled and pursed his lips, "Oh, am I cursed! But I'll do it."
    {http://www.magickeys.com/books/patrick/caught.gif}
    And true to his word, that little elf began to do Patrick's homework. Except there was one glitch. The elf didn't always know what to do and he needed help. "Help me! Help me!" he'd say. And Patrick would have to help -- in whatever way.
    "I don't know this word," the elf squeeked while reading Patrick's homework. "Get me a dictionary. No, what's even better. Look up the word and sound it out by each letter."
    When it came to math, Patrick was out of luck. "What are times tables?" the elf shrieked. "We elves never need that. And addition and subtraction and division and fractions? Here, sit down beside me, you simply must guide me."
    {http://www.magickeys.com/books/patrick/books.gif}
    Elves know nothing of human history, to them it's a mystery. So the little elf, already a shouter, just got louder "Go to the library, I need books. More and more books. And you can help me read them too."
    {http://www.magickeys.com/books/patrick/boy.gif}
    As a matter of fact every day in every way that little elf was a nag! Patrick was working harder than ever and was it a drag! He was staying up nights, had never felt so weary, was going to school with his eyes puffed and bleary.
    Finally the last day of school arrived and the elf was free to go. As for homework, there was no more, so he quietly and slyly slipped out the back door.
    {http://www.magickeys.com/books/patrick/boywell.gif}
    Patrick got his A's; his classmates were amazed; his teachers smiled and were full of praise. And his parents? They wondered what had happened to Patrick. He was now the model kid. Cleaned his room, did his chores, was cheerful, never rude, like he had developed a whole new attitude.
    You see, in the end Patrick still thought he'd made that tiny man do all his homework. But I'll share a secret, just between you and me. It wasn't the elf; Patrick had done it himself!
    What you have to do with this reading is to make:
    -Three questions with more than one answer to choose the correct one.
    -A list with the verbs you find in past tense.
    See you!

    David: How do you like living in the big city?
    Maria: There are many things that are better than living in the country!
    David: Can you give me some examples?
    Maria: Well, it certainly is more interesting than the country. There is so much more to do and see!
    David: Yes, but the city is more dangerous than the country.
    Maria: That's true. People in the city aren't as open and friendly as those in the countryside.
    David: I'm sure that the country is more relaxed, too!
    Maria: Yes, the city is busier than the country. However, the country is much slower than the city.
    David: I think that's a good thing!
    Maria: Oh, I don't. The country is so slow and boring! It's much more boring than the city.
    David: How about the cost of living? Is the country cheaper than the city?
    Maria: Oh, yes. The city is more expensive than the country.
    David: Life in the country is also much healthier than in the city.
    Maria: Yes, it's cleaner and less dangerous in the country. But, the city is so much more exciting. It's faster, crazier and more fun than the country.
    David: I think YOU are crazy for moving to the city.
    Maria: Well, I'm young now. Maybe when I'm married and have children I'll move back to the country.
