THE RIGHT SCHOOLBAG?
Ann, can I help you with your backpack?

Bob: No wonder. You always carry everything, from A to Z. Pens, pencils, and other school necessities, I guess?
Ann: Exactly. My schoolbag is my companion. Friendship between us knows no end. Wherever I go, I carry it. I pack it every evening. I put my school books to use in the classroom, copybooks to write in, a bottle of water to drink when I’m thirsty.
Bob: I see. By the way, your schoolbag has got cute looks, with these cartoon characters. Are they your favourite?
Ann: Good guess! What about your schoolbag? Is it comfortable?

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A SCHOOLBAG
It was a typical school day. I was very heavy, with all the school necessities in my large compartment: five books, five copybooks, a pencil box full of pens and pencils, a ruler, an eraser, a bottle of water, a packed lunch and other stuff. It was time to go to school.
My owner carried me on her shoulders on our way to school. When we came, she took out her books and homework and hung me and her coat on the peg in the cloakroom. It was going to be another long day. I knew I had to wait in that position till three o’clock.
Hours came and went. Suddenly I felt water. Not again! Somebody had spilt it on me, and I got wet and uncomfortable. It was so unfair! Back at home, they put me outside to dry in the sun.
The life of a schoolbag is so boring. Children must treat us with more respect. If we leave them, they will have to carry everything themselves.

2. There were a lot of things in the schoolbag.

5. The schoolbag enjoyed its day.

To read a book; to have packed lunch;
To write an exercise; to drink water;
To draw a picture. to play in the schoolground.

Personally, … . My… is very… . It has got… . You can see… . there.

13. Write a thank-you note to someone who bought you your schoolbag. Use:
