WINTER

Winter is a wonderful season. On a bright winter day the nature is beautiful with trees covered by snow. We like winter for the snow and also for the best holidays of the year.

In winter when it is frosty most children like to play outdoors: they play snowball fights, make a snowman, sledge, skate and ski. But when the temperature is more than -10 °С (minus 10 degrees Celsius) and it is windy, it is then better to stay indoors. Then it is not only cold to play, it is freezing and the snow squeaks under your boots when you walk. It’s then better to put on warm clothes like a sweater, gloves and an anorak, and to wear winter boots on your feet.

The weather is also nasty at the end of winter when the snow melts and water is everywhere. There are streams and puddles of dirty water in the streets. Then we say it is a thaw. But we are not very upset because spring soon comes.

4. Read the rhymes and learn one of them.

SNOWFLAKES

Snowflakes, snowflakes falling down,

On the trees and on the ground.

I will build a man of snow,

Tall black hat and eyes of coal,

If the sun comes out today,

I will watch you melt away!

***

It’s fun to walk in the sparkling snow,

And hear my boots go crunch,

I play so hard.

Soon I’m wet and tired

And ready for hot soup with lunch.

JANUARY

January opens

The box of the year

And brings out days

That are bright and clear.

And brings out days

That are cold and gray,

And shouts, «Come see

What I brought today!»

5. Look at the pictures and name the seasons. Say what season each of them comes after. Then describe the pictures.

Model: It’s spring. It comes after winter.

I can see a wonderful spring day in picture 1. The trees are in blossom. There is green grass everywhere. It’s warm outside, but it isn’t hot.

6. Look at the pictures and say what you do in each season. There is a model to help you.

Model: In summer we often go to the forest to pick up berries because it’s warm in summer and berries are ripe ([raip] — стиглий). We also go to the seaside to swim in the sea, lie in the sun and get suntanned (полежати на сонечку і позасмагати).

7. Mr. Jones is going to the mountains for a skiing holiday. Look at the picture and help him pack his suitcase.

Model: Mr. Jones must take a skiing cap because it is often windy in the mountains. He doesn’t have to take a bathing suit because it is cold in winter in the mountains, that’s why he can’t swim there.

8. You have got the answers to the questions. Say what the questions are. Use the model to help you.
