Pet Day at School
Yesterday we brought our pets to school. They made a lot of noise.
Mr. McGrath said, "Quite down, dogs! Lie down, cats!"
We tried to help Mr. McGrath. My big dog got excited. She barked and barked. One cat scratched Jose's little dog. Even the ferret was making noise! Jenny didn't have any trouble with her pets. She had three big goldfish.
"You have wonderful pets, Jenny." Mr. McGrath said.
Finally, we all took our pets outside. Except Jenny, of course!
Our Class Play
Our class play is coming up next month, and everyone should help make it a success. It is true that not everyone can act in the play because there are not enough parts. Also, some students do not enjoy appearing on stage. Still, there is something for everyone to do. Those who do not wish to be on the stage can find plenty to do behind the scenes. One such job is making scenery. Any student who likes to build can give time to this important job. We'll need staircases, walls, and street lamps for Act I. For Act II we'll need scenery that looks like a beach.
Another important job is making costumes. Students who enjoy different kinds of clothes will have fun with this job. We'll need some special hats, some jewelry, and some old-fashioned beach clothes.
