Learning how to write a text appropriate to the addressee

 Learning how to write a text appropriate to the addressee Let’s write and read through the following texts: The Trip My mum woke me up saying: “Wake up, lazybones!” That’s right. I don’t understand how such an integral part of my body can be used as an insult. But I got up anyway, I got ready and I set out, or setted out or however you spell that past tense, towards the school bus. The school trip to Mt. Resegone was a complete blast, from start to finish. We made so much noise, we were unstoppable. The driver, a touchy and hostile man, kept instigating confrontation. But who cares! He was such a pain! We had so much fun! We could not stop laughing! Even the teachers were laughing non-stop. The trip That morning my mum woke me up saying: “Wake up, lazybones!” I turned the other way, but then I remembered that I was supposed to leave for my school trip that morning and I got up right away. I set out, or setted out, I should check the correct grammar, towards

 Holiday homework for III grade, elementary school. The Adventures of Pokonaso, Chapter 4 Questions: Why does Babbo not like taking Pokonaso with him when he goes fishing? Why does Babbo, after seeing the wood that Pokonaso brought, run home? How does Pokonaso’s family save itself? Who are the Nasastri? Who does Pokonaso believe are the men who are walking in long file? Who are they really? Who captures Pokonaso? How does Okkibuffi liberate him?

Pokonaso’s family is able to save itself because Babbo uses some big stones to close the entrance to the cave while the mother, with a

Spring poetry: “Brilla nell’aria” by Giacomo Leopardi

Brilla nell'aria   Primavera d'intorno. Brilla nell'aria  e per li campi esulta,  si' ch'a mirarla intenerisce il core odi greggi belar, muggire armenti e gli altri augelli contenti a gara insieme, per lo libero ciel  fan mille giri, pur festeggiando il lor tempo migliore. Giacomo Leopardi Spring poetry: “Brilla nell’aria” by Giacomo Leopardi  Prose version of the poem: Spring brightens the sky, and it is as if the fields exulted at its coming. At its passage, the heart fills with emotions and you listen to the sheep bleating with joy, the cows mooing; the birds happily circle the sky and, like a joyful race, fly free, celebrating the best season of their life. Prosa della poesia La primavera illumina il cielo ed è come se i campi esultassero al suo incedere. Al suo passaggio il cuore si riempie d'emozioni e ascolti le pecorelle che belano dalla gioia, i muggiti delle mucche; gli uccelli felici ruotano nel cielo e, come in una gara della g
