I woke up early today,

But I felt so tired.

I tried to move my hands.

But they felt so heavy!

I could not move my hands.

I tried to sit up in my bed.

But I could not move!

My back hurt and my waist hurt, too.

I tried to move my legs, slowly, very slowly.

I moved one leg first, then the other.

But I could barely move them!

I tried to put my feet on the floor.

One foot first, then the other.

I said, “Naughty feet! You have to move!”

But they would not listen.

I tried to move my head in circles.

I tried to stretch my neck.

But my neck and my head stayed still. Agh!

My eyes were wide open.

Well, I thought, at least, I can move my eyes.

I opened my mouth, slowly, very slowly.

Then I shouted, “Mom!”

Mom came.

She put her hands on my forehead

And said I had a fever.

I was sick! I had to stay in bed.

So I picked up a book.

It was a book about children.

They did many different things!

I would run, sing, jump, and play

With them for a while.

Letters and Sounds

“It was a beautiful morning. The sun shone brightly. The little boy greeted the hens as he walked by. Then he started to sing and a cat and a dog followed him.”

·       What do the letters in red have in common?

Words are also made up of letters called vowels. There are five vowels: a, e, i, o, u. When a short word has only one vowel and it appears at the beginning of a word, or between two consonants, the sound is usually short.


    Example: cat, hen, sing, dog, su


2) Read the words out load. Then match the words that have the same vowel sound.
