Today…

October 16, 2010 § 1 Comment

Here is a lovely quotation by Eleanor Roosevelt, 1884 -1962, wife of the US President, Franklin Roosevelt, and celebrated author and civil rights activist.

Suggested activity:

Elementary+ Learners work in pairs. Try to work out what the quotation is.

“Yesterday is history,
tomorrow is mystery,
today is a gift;
that is why we call it the present.”

Points to consider:

The two meanings of “present”.
The different spellings of “mystEry” and “histOry”
