                                -Letter is like a human body, it is not be called as a complete body if one part is missing. Letter has a part also that plays a complete role to communicate to the reader. Same to human body, letter has a part to be completed so that it can function well.

                                *The teacher will post the parts of the human body in the left side, and the parts of the letter in the right side. The students are asked to give the similarities and difference between the two pictures. Furthermore, the teacher asks the students to give their insights about the topic being presented.

Bridges and houses, hedges and ditches;                              All by himself and gathering brambles;
And charging along like troops in a battle,                             Here is a tramp who stands and gazes;
All through the meadows, the horses and cattle;                              And there is the green for stringing the daisies!
All of the sights of the hill and the plain                                  Here is a cart run away in the road
Fly as thick as driving rain;                                                            Lumping along with man and load;
And ever again, in the wink of an eye,                                    And here is a mill, and there is a river:
Painted stations whistle by.                                                        Each is a glimpse and gone forever
