COMPOSITION: my father’s house
My name is Betha. I live with my parents in our two bedroom apartment situated along Ring Road in Benin City. The house is beautiful and meets the needs of my family in many ways. It shelters us from rain, sun, storm and wind. It meets our physical, emotional, spiritual and relational needs.
The house has two bedrooms, a living room, a store, a kitchen, two toilets and bathrooms. It had a well decorated compound. It is very beautiful. It is painted in green.
The beauty of the house and its spacious compound are some of the features of the house that I admire the most. Its location is another thing that interests me. I would have wished we had more rooms and a large dining – room in it.
Pupil’s Activity one (1): Read the example carefully and thoughtfully.
Pupil’s Activity two (2): Write a detailed composition about your father’s house.
