Teaching On Good Neighbourliness Oral and Written Comprehension English Grammar Primary 3 Third Term Week 4
Title: A Friendly Neighborhood
Once upon a time, in a vibrant neighborhood called Sunshine Gardens, there lived a group of families who were always there for one another. They believed in the importance of good neighborliness and worked together to make their community a pleasant place to live.
In Sunshine Gardens, Mr. and Mrs. Johnson were known for their beautiful garden. Every morning, they would water the flowers and prune the bushes. Their neighbors often admired the colorful blooms that added charm to the surroundings. One day, Mrs. Johnson fell ill and couldn’t tend to the garden. Understanding the situation, the neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Brown, stepped in to help. They watered the plants and even brought some new flowers to brighten the garden. The Johnsons were grateful for their kindness.
Next door, the Smith family had a talented young artist named Lily. She loved to paint and often displayed her artwork in their front yard. One sunny day, a sudden gust of wind blew away some of Lily’s paintings. Mr. and Mrs. Lee, who lived across the street, saw what happened and quickly gathered the scattered paintings. They returned them to Lily, who was relieved and thanked the Lees for their thoughtfulness.
In Sunshine Gardens, people didn’t only help each other, but they also respected one another’s privacy. Mr. and Mrs. Roberts, who lived next to the Parkers, always made sure to keep their music volume low in the evenings. They knew that the Parkers had a baby who needed a peaceful sleep. The Parkers appreciated their considerate behavior and thanked them for being understanding neighbors.
Another remarkable feature of Sunshine Gardens was the sense of unity during festivals and celebrations. Whenever a family organized a special event, everyone contributed to make it a grand success. When it was Mrs. Thompson’s birthday, the neighbors surprised her with a party. They brought delicious food, played games, and shared laughter. Mrs. Thompson felt loved and cherished by her caring neighbors.
The good neighborliness in Sunshine Gardens was not limited to humans. Even the furry friends were part of this close-knit community. Whenever a pet was missing, the whole neighborhood would come together to search for it. Mr. and Mrs. Davis once found a lost dog wandering around. They posted pictures and descriptions in the neighborhood chat group. Thanks to their efforts, the dog was reunited with its owner, and everyone celebrated the happy ending.
Living in Sunshine Gardens taught everyone the value of being a good neighbor. The families cherished their bond and the sense of belonging. They knew that by supporting and caring for each other, they could create a beautiful and harmonious community.
