Have your child read the passage below out loud:


The Pilot

 

Pete the pilot zips up his jacket nice and tight.

 

Pete was excited for his flight tonight. He checked his flight plan. The weather was just right; there would be no lightning or wind.

 

Pete got in the plane and buckled up tight. He was ready.

 

The plane went down the runway and up into the night. He spotted a highway and some pretty nice sights.

 

After a while, he turned to go home, looking again at the moon that shone bright. Pete let out a sigh. He loved flying high in the night sky. 

-------------------------------

Explain It

Now have your child answer a couple questions about the story:


  1. What is Pete's job?

  2. Without looking back, can you spell the word "flight?"
