A Ghostly Dictation and Analogies That Build Thinking Skills and Vocabulary

Yoko’s Ghost may be a ghost story. Or it may not.  On this site, you may listen to the story, use the story as a dictation exercise or listen and read along. There’s a mystery to solve, too, that will test your knowledge of human nature more than your knowledge of ghosts.
