Which Came First —the Rock or the Hard Place?

One night at sea, the ship's captain saw what looked like the lights of another ship heading toward him. He had his signaler blink to the other ship: "Change your course 10 degrees south."
The reply came back: "Change your course 10 degrees north."
The ship's captain answered: "I am a captain. Change your course south."
To which the reply was, "Well, I am a seaman first class. Change your course north."
This infuriated the captain, so he signaled back: "Dammit, I say change your course south. I'm on a battleship!"
To which the reply came back: "And I say change your course north. I'm in a lighthouse."
The Point of This Story: Don't shoot your mouth off before you know all the facts.

The Story of the Sad Snake

A certain wise woman was walking into the outskirts of a village one evening. As she entered the village, she saw a snake biting the villagers. The snake bit everyone who came within range, and, frequently, for no apparent reason, chased the villagers. The wise woman told the snake she felt the snake should stop biting the villagers and making their lives difficult. The snake agreed. A few months later, the wise woman passed through the village again and saw the once beautiful sleek snake covered with mud and lying in a ditch on the side of the road. The snake told the wise woman he was doing what she had suggested. He had stopped biting the villagers. The wise woman looked at the snake and said, "Yes, but I didn't tell you not to hiss."
The Point of This Story: Walk softly but carry a big stick.

Miracle on the Mountain

One day a hiker all by himself out in the middle of the wilderness fell off a cliff. Luckily, half way down he grabbed hold of a vine and stopped his fall. Unluckily, he was still hanging 75 feet from the ground, and the vine was beginning to break. Desperate, the man looked up to the heavens and called out, "Is there anyone up there who can help me?"Incredibly, the clouds parted, a bright light shone down, and a deep voice said, "I am the Lord. I will help you, but first you must trust me and let go of the vine."
The man stared at the clouds, then looked down at the earth 75 feet below. He looked back up and shouted, "Is there anyone else up there who can help me?'
The Point of This Story: Always get a second opinion.

let's spell together..

Let`s Practise Spelling

Spelling a word correctly is very important. It gives a good impression and it avoids misunderstandings.

Good spellers are skillful at breaking words up into syllables.
Syllables are the individual sound that make up a word.

Examples: play-ful, hos-pi-tal, u-ni-ver-si-ty

Breaking a word into syllables makes it easier. We only deal with one small bit at a time.
For each word give a clap for each syllable. For example, give one clap for each syllable. This means there are two claps for this word: "clap-ping".

Examples: kitchen           kit-chen
                 weekends        week-ends
                 sweetly            sweet-ly
                 window           win-dow
                 shampoo         sham-poo

  • ( , ) - a comma, used to list things and and indicate sentences or questions
  • ( ? ) - a question mark or query, used when writing the questions.
  • ! ) - an exclamation mark, used write about strong emotion or to be shouted.
  • ( ' ) - an apostrophe, used to show that something belongs to something else.
  • ( " ) - a quotation mark, used around the worlds that people have said.
Example of full stop : I have a book.
Example of comma : I love to eat chicken rice, salad and fried rice.
Example of question mark : Where are you going?
