    Default short passage

    Could someone please edit this short passage meant for Yr 1 students? Thanks in advance.

    Once a dog was walking near a river when he saw his refection in the water. He saw another


    dog with a bone in its mouth. He wanted the other bone when he had already one in his month.

    When he opened his month to try to get the other dog's bone, his bone fell into the water.

    He was very sad because the other dog would now have two bones.

    Thanks, Tdol.

    Your eyes are very sharp to be able to spot 'mouth' wrongly spelt as 'month'.

    All the best
