Storyboard Text

  • Hello students of 4th grade and 1st grade . Since Miss Davis is not here today , I will be working with both 4th and 1st graders .
  • I am pleased to announce to you that you will all have your own books to handle ! Now we are all very fortunate to receive these books , so we must say that we will appreciate our new books . Can you all say that ?
  • The whole class says , "We will take good care of our books and appreciate them Miss Crocker ."
  • Cassie : Oh all the books are dirty , I wonder how Little Man will react to that . Seeing as he is a clean freak , he will probably not be pleased .
  • "Okay ." She starts handing out books . When she is done she notices the first graders staring at the short pile of books . "Do not worry little ones , see those books on Miss Davis's desk ? Those are for you ."
  • What did you say Clayton ?
  • "Dirty ! Here the county is giving us these fine books , and you think they are dirty ! I will not tolerate this . " She continues giving out books .
  • Uh Uh-h ma'am I said m-may I p-please have another book , this one is a little dirty .
  • In a surprised voice : No ! In an angry voice : That's it , I am getting my switch .
  • No !
  • What is wrong with you Clayton Chester , now you pick up that book right now , or I will get my switch .
  • That's who you are Cassie .
  • "Ma'am ma'am , I know why he done it , see what they call us ." She shoves the book in Miss Crocker's face .
  • Well , if he don't want his book , then I don't want mine neither .
  • She hits Little Man a few more times . "Okay Cassie , come get yours .
