Form groups. Tell each other an interesting thing you have seen The Magic Garden The magic garden was in a school playground. It was very pretty. Sunflowers and roses stood high against the wall. There were also marigolds, poppies and pansies. The sunshine fell on this garden more than on any other and the flowers danced and sang happily. They said to one another, “We have hundreds of little gardeners.” They were the children from the school. One sunny morning the flowers were talking to the birds. “I love all the children, but I love the dear little ones most of all,” said a poppy. “I like them to bring their watering cans and water my thirsty roots.” “Yes,” said the marigolds, “the boys are good to us too. They dig the ground so well!” “We love the little children,” said a tiny bird. “They are kind and they bring bread for us.” All the flowers said, “We must work hard to make our dresses very pretty, for the children will be here soon.” The sun said, “I will help you also, for nothing pleases me better than to see the children running about in the golden sunshine.” Suddenly, the children came out laughing and singing, and the flowers stopped their songs to listen to them. “Oh, look at the tall sunflower!” said one child, and the sunflower lifted its head very proudly. Another child said, “I love the marigold in its golden dress.” The marigold smiled happily. It was indeed a magic garden because it had fairies too.
