Post Daily routines/activites (My day.)
My day. by enjoyinglifeinseoul

I looked at my clock and saw that it was 7:00. It was time to wake up. I wanted to take a shower, but my sister was in the bathroom. She takes a long time to dry and brush her hair, so I was not happy. I decided to go to the kitchen and wash my face. I didn’t eat breakfast, because I was not hungry. I wanted to brush my teeth, but my sister was still in the bathroom. Uuuuuugghhhh!

It was now 7:30 so I went to my bedroom to get dressed. After that I walked into the living room and my mom told me not to forget to make my bed. However, it was 8:00 and it was time to go to school. When I got to school we studied math, history, and English.

It was 12:00 now and it was time to eat lunch. I was so hungry I could eat a horse, but we had spaghetti, soup, and salad. After lunch I played soccer with my friends.

At 3:00 the bell rang and it was time to go home. When I got home I wanted to play computer games, but my mom said I had to do my homework first.

By the time I finished my homework it was 6:15. My mom didn’t want to cook, so my dad said we could go to my favorite restaurant to eat dinner.

When we got home I wanted to take a bath because I smelled like an old shoe. I was so tired from my day that I decided to go to bed early.

1. What is the first thing the boy did this morning?

2. Why couldn’t the boy take a shower?

3. What did he do in the kitchen?

4. Why couldn’t the boy make his bed?

5. Did the boy study science before lunch?

6. What did his mom say he had to do after school?

7. Why did he take a bath that night?

3. I went to my bedroom to _________________________________.

4. When we got home I wanted to ___________________________.
.
5. We went to my favorite restaurant to ________________________.


AD Lib Version Give the students A sheet numbered 1 to 17 and have them write the daily activities down in any order. Then call on a student to read their list and fill in the blanks. Another option would be to assign the kids numbers and then pass out the flash cards or have the students read the story and have them flip a flash card as they get to the blank. If you use the 3rd option go through the story and delete the numbers before printing out.

These make for funny stories such as: I went to the bathroom to do my homework. When I got to school I had a bath.

Great story!

I think it's OK if you don't get all the vocabulary in there but I'll add it in anyway.

All the extra questions and activities are really helpful as well.

I haven't collected the stories and made formal worksheets yet. I do hope to sit down one day and write out some more stories. Hopefully then I can create a formal reading section for the site.

If you want to copy the text to Word and print that to use with your students, that's no problem.
