STEP 1: LISTEN TO THE AUDIOSTEP 2: STUDY VOCABULARY
Tonight, my cousins came over to my house. My mom offered to babysit them so my aunt and uncle could go watch a play. Usually, my cousins are pretty well-behaved, but this time they were acting a little naughty. They had a lot of energy and they weren't listening to anything I was saying. I tried playing with them, but they weren't sharing the toys. Then, they were running around the house. My mom made us dinner. They wouldn't stay in their seats. My mom asked them to calm down. They eventually sat down and ate their dinner. After dinner, they were acting wild again, so I decided to ignore them and I turned on a movie. They saw what I was watching and sat down with me. They quickly got bored. They weren't watching the movie anymore. They started screaming and running around again. I wasn't having a good time with them. Finally, they got tired and fell asleep on my bed. I went out into the living room and watched television with my mom. We were both tired from the evening. We waited for my aunt and uncle to return.
