Now let's look at my mom. She (cook) something in the kitchen. It smells so good! She (put) some kind of spices into the pot. The pot (sit) on the stove. The water (boil) inside it. Also, something (bake) in the oven. It (look) like it is done. It (start) to turn brown. I think it is a turkey.

I also have two younger brothers. Right now they (play) with their toys on the floor beside me. They (laughing) with one another. They (make) a house out of blocks. The house (get) taller and taller. Oh no! The house is too tall. Watch out! It (crash) to the floor!
