Unit 20 Life Is Beautiful!
A. Listen and read.
It's a beautiful spring day. Maria gets up early. She feels happy. She knows that it's a nice day because she
puts her hand on the glass of the window. It is very warm. She opens the window and the singing of the birds fills the room. She can smell the flowers outside her home. They smell
sweet and fresh. After Maria gets dressed and has her breakfast, she puts her books in her bag. She is ready for school.
Maria is a lot like any other students in her neighborhood. She goes to school and likes to be with her friends. But Maria cannot see the beautiful spring day. She cannot see the flowers, the blue sky, or the singing birds. She cannot see the new green leaves on the tress. She can
opt see these
because she is visually impaired. She has been unable to see since she was born.
