Anna: Hello, from Washington, D.C.! Today at work I am reading the news for the first time. I am really nervous. But my boss, Ms. Weaver, is here to help me.

Caty: Now, Anna, remember. When we read the news we are always reading facts. We never show our feelings.

Anna: Sure thing, Ms. Weaver.

Caty: Great. Are you ready?

Anna: Yes.

Caty: Okay, let’s try the first story!

Anna: Hello, and welcome to The News.

Anna: A new book is very popular with children and families. This is it.

Anna: It is about a lost duckling. The duck's mother cannot find him.

Caty: Stop! Anna, when you say the words “duck” and “duckling” you look really sad.

Anna: I do?

Caty: Yes. Sad is a feeling.

Anna: Sad is not a fact. Sorry. Let me try again.

Caty: Okay, she’s trying again! And go.
