English - Copywork & Dictation : Gooney Bird Green

From Gooney Bird Greene by Lois Lowry...

When the door of the bus opened, the orchestra players came out one by one, holding their instruments. They arranged themselves in a semicircle on the lawn, facing the Watertower Elementary School.

The conductor, holding a baton, stepped to the centre and lifted his arms.

"Too bad he doesn't have long black gloves," Gooney Bird murmured.

Mrs Pidgeon opened the windows so that they could hear better. The orchestra geban to play a slow, stately melody.

When it was finished, the conductor bowed. Then he turned to the windows and explained,"That was a sarabande. It's a kind of dance. We'll play it one more time in honour of Gooney Bird Green."
