I am very excited today because I got a Scholastic Book order form and I want to order a lot of books. In fact, right now Mama is trying to talk to me but I am just listing off the 1,000 books I want to buy.
Mama: How was your day today?
Claire: Good. Smurf books! I went to recess and that's always going to be the funnest part.
Mama: Did you have any more problems with that girl today?
Claire: When she was in Mrs. Terry's room she was pulling on my hand sanitizer to tell me not to go. Mrs. Alvarez now has little circles that you sit alone on and she throws them and you sit on different places in the room. She had a red one. I forgot the name. That's for kids that don't listen. Loni sat on one. That is what she likes me calling her. They have space books. See?
Mama: What did you do in math today?
Claire: Shape math. Go verbs are the only words.
Mama: What's a verb?
Claire: It's something that I'm learning.
Mama: Is it an action word?
Claire: It's the best word and an action word. If you were in Mrs. Alvarez's class you would know what it is. The Kissing Hand. Can we order that? Splat the Cat!
Mama: What stories did you hear today?
Claire: No stories.
Mama: What songs did you sing?
Claire: There are seven days...Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday January February March April May June July August September October November December. That's the song you taught me! Is it joke time?
Claire: A chicken ate your glasses! Alani touched your eye. Paul touched your eye. That's it.
