30 July – The Canterville Ghost

Hello! Today in class we talked about this story and its author (Oscar Wilde) and we read the first pages. We also talked about ghosts, spooky stories, beliefs….

Here you have some activities about the pages we read in class. Remember to write the DATE and TITLE before you start.

  1. WHO IS WHO? Complete the family chart.

2. Who is Mrs. Umney? What does she look like and what does she do at Canterville Chase?

3. Why was the blood stain weird? What happened when Mr. Otis removed it? What does Mrs. Umney say will happen now? Explain in your own words.

4. Remember to make card #1 in which you must write a brief summary of what we have read so far and new vocabulary.
