Learned • The place is very calm • Inchabod remembers being a boy • The place is called sleepy hollow • The town is bewitched • There is a headless man that appears • The country is called the state of new york • Inchabod is a teacher
Inchabod is a really helpful person • He is a really good singer he sings at the church • He believes in tales and legends • When he would walk through the woods he would play tunes • Inchabod likes Katrina • Katrina is a rich girl
Inchabod imagines how his life would be with Katrina • When he went to Katrina's house it was full of food and it was really big and nice • Katrina has a lot of admirers • Inchabod is going to try to win her • Inchabod knows brom bones is his rival • Inchabod and brom got invited to a party
He borrowed a horse from his friend • Inchabod dressed really nice but not as nice as the rich people • On his way to the party he smells all these different farm crops • When he gets to the party he sees alll these nicely dressed peoplle • Bones was dressed nice, better than anyone
Once he got inside the house it was full of color and there was tables and tables of food • Inchabod is realy good at dancing and bones got jealous • The people started telling stories and inchabod was interested • Bones is trying to impress people by telling stories about himself
Inchabod started telling his stories and feels like he has impressed her • Then on his way back home he started seeing and hearing thing • He sees something near the tree and gets scared • He them sees a headless horseman and takes out on full speed • The man started chasing him and then inchabods saddle fell off
Once he passes the bridge near the church and he thinks hes safe the creature shoots him • The next day they go out to look for him but just find his hat and a pumpkin • Some people believe the goblin took him • Then later on Katrina and Brom got married and nobody ever knew what exactly happened
Prediction • I think its about a man without a head or at least something like that or about a hollow that sleeps a lot . Because when I was searching for the short story a picture of a man on a horse without a head kept showing up.
