The tall slim girl in the middle of the room, the one in silk pink trousers and a red top, is Ann. She is very energetic and I think she looks very smart, don’t you? Our friend Oksana is dancing near her. She is wearing a short black leather skirt and a T-shirt. She never cares what she wears and we should help her to develop dress taste. But she is the kindest girl I know.

At Home:

Write a short story about the clothes you wear.

Say: where you bought them, who influences your choice, what your friends think of them.

See First Aid Kit: Word Building 3, p. 237

___ Ma made a dress for Ora of red cotton she was saving for a quilt. It was very long and full so that her elder sister Loretta could wear it. Everybody tried to help. Loretta gave Ora her brown felt hat with the beautiful blue feathers. Vida brought the brooch in which the green glass stone she may have found in the street, looked almost exactly like an emerald.

___ When Ora came to the party she couldn’t recognize her schoolmates: they were dressed in old sweaters and jeans, faded hats with funny flowers and torn lace and ribbons. To Ora a party always meant to wear the best you had, but it was a tacky party and everybody laughed at her new dress and praised her for looking tacky.

1 Ora Tarrabie was ten years old and lived with her family in a poor immigratory camp in California. She went to school and studied together with children from big ranches. This week at school everybody was speaking about Hester Burt’s party, the girl from a rich family who lived in the biggest ranch. On Friday she came up to Ora and invited her to the party.

____ When she was washed, dressed and ready to go, the family looked at her with admiration. «Doesn’t she look a picture, pa?» Ma was smiling happily.

____ When the party reached its peak, Hester’s grandmother said, «You have won the prize, child, for the tackiest costume. Here it is.» And all the children were clapping and shouting. But Ora wasn’t glad. «I can’t take the prize home. If ma thought I looked funny, she’d feel unhappy.» So she took the box with a prize and threw it into the mud that would keep her secret and hide her shame.

____ When Ora said about the invitation at home, all the family was very much pleased. Pa promised to bring Ora fast to the Burt ranch and back and ma said, «Ora is going to the party. And what is more, she is going to wear a new dress».
