Read the blog post. Identify the problem.

Here we go!

June 4, 2016

Dear parents, dear followers,
Our plane has finally landed in JFK airport, NYC. We thought we would never make it! Let me tell you what happened right from the start at London Heathrow airport: Elijah was waiting to pass through the security check when he realised he did not have his passport.

Now, that was horrible! We couldn’t leave without him! But it was impossible not to leave either, even without him. He ran back to his mum, who looked everywhere ‒ in his luggage, his backpack... nothing. She asked him when he had last seen his passport… He said: “I was packing yesterday evening when I saw it on my bedside table... Oh, now I remember! I put it in the drawer to keep it safe.”

Finally, his mom had to go back home in a rush. She eventually found the passport and brought it all the way back to the airport. There, a chain of helpful parents took the precious, long-awaited document to Elijah and he was able to board the plane just seconds before the doors closed. Phew! We are so relieved. Elijah, you are so absent-minded! Parents, don’t hesitate to write comments! The kids love them!

Mrs Pembroke


a) Elijah missed the plane. (Right. / Wrong.) 
b) What was Elijah’s problem at the airport? (Someone took his passport. / He decided not to go on the road trip. / He couldn’t find his passport.)

d) How did the other parents help Elijah’s parents? (They organised a demonstration. / They organised a chain. / They collected money.)
