We always go to out for ice cream after the first day of school. The kids pick Baskin Robbins because they have the best flavors, like rockin' pop swirl and pink bubblegum. I like the old standbys: pralines n' cream and chocolate n' peanut butter. I always ask the kids to tell me their 3 greats and today, on the first day of school, this is what they said:
Andy: ______ is in two classes.
I am buddies with ______ in math.
All of my teachers are excellent so far, although last year I thought ______ was sweet until she turned sour.
Alaina: How many times to I have to tell you, I don't have any greats?!! Do I look like I am 7?!!
Becca: I survived.
Home-ec looks like it's going to be fun.
I have classes with my friends.
Ryan: I like Mr. Allen.
I like the kids in my class.
We did name art.
After they tell me their greats, they can tell me a bad if they have one (the greats have to be first because sometimes they make the bad go away.)
Andy and Ryan didn't have bads, but Alaina and Becca did.
Becca: I got soup for lunch and the styrofoam tray broke while I was walking, so it spilled all over my friend. (that is a real bad...)
Alaina: My teachers are worse than last year. (I think she was just tired!)
