"I am excited to go to school today. " "I get to see my friend Alex . " Said, Adam.
"I wished I had friends." Said Lily.
"Thanks for your help today Justin." Megan said.
"No problem. Always good to stop by." Justin said.
"I wish I knew how to read. Adam says he is learning it." Lily said.
"Please turn your bookes to page five , we will be learning Math." The teacher said.
Once upon a time In Africa in there lived three children Megan, Adam, and Lily. Adam was twelve and went to school as well as help in the gardens. Lily was nine and did not go to school and Megan was 16 and helped her sister in the fields and helped her parents with the cooking but she did not go to school.
"Well, it's a long way home." Said, Alex.
"Well I kind of wish the walk to and from school was shorter. " Said Adam.
Megan used to go to school when she was six years old but then her parents did not have enough money so she stopped going to school and had to stay home and help her parents look after the house. Every day when Meghan's bother was at school, her friend Justin would come over to help out with the garden. When the work was done they would eat a snack .
"Adam, I am so glad you got home safe. I have dinner for you. Lily's already asleep." Megan said.
"Great I am starving. " Said Adam.
At school, Adam was learning how to read simple words today he would learn to add numbers. After the lessons the boys and the girls would play tag in the dirt then head home. Unfrotunatly the learing at school was not the best the kids had no food, there teacher was not paid well and there texbooks were out of date.
"Ok Megan, Lily today I am going to show you how to do a Math. equation and one simple sentence," Adam said.
'How am I supposed to do this? "Lily thought.
After school, Adam and Alex walked all the way home. The two of them lived very far from the school it took them about an hour. Very soon the sky was getting darker and the night was fast approaching. As soon as they got home It would be time to eat dinner, they were both soon starting to feel there stomaches growl as they walked home.
As soon as Adam got home he could hear the snores of his little sister and saw his older sister waiting for him. All Adam could think about was how hungry he was. The only thing he ate before walking to school was an apple from a nearby apple tree there was only a little bit of food at home but it was never enough.
The next day Adam decided to teach his siblings before going to school how to add 1+1 as well as show them how to write a simple sentence on the dusty ground just like his teacher showed him. Megan understood how to write the sentence in the dirt but she forgot to capitalize it and her writing was messy. Lily was having trouble learning anything except math.
