You Gotta’ Go To School. No Moping.

From the poem “Sick” by Shel Silverstein…

HEY…WAKE UP! YESYOU have to go to school. You CANNOT sleep until 9:00 or even 8:00. PLEASE eat your breakfast. BRUSH your teeth…NO BUBBLEGUM. You HAVE to wear those clothes. NO torn blue jeans. NO flip flops. WHERE is your work folder? You FORGOT it?

NO MOPING ALLOWED! NEVER! EVER!

YOU ARE SICK? NO, NO! NOT AGAIN!

Peggy Ann McKay is having a very terrible, horrible, awful, very bad day…just as a child had in another children’s book. In “Where the Sidewalk Ends”, a poetry book for children by Shel Silverstein…Peggy Ann McKay evidently has contracted several illnesses since bedtime.

Not only does she have back trouble and a sprained ankle, she thinks that she might just have mumps and measles at the same time. Poor, poor baby. Poor, poor Mama. Poor, poor teacher. Peggy Ann is…

Sicker than sick ever thought sick could be!

For the fourth time in four weeks!

Nobody goes to school with these problems!

Peggy Ann McKay just does not understand anything about calendars. When they talked about the days of the week, she was looking in her lunchbox. She does know what day her mother keeps saying over and over again…

IT IS SATURDAY! IT IS SATURDAY!

AND…OUT THE DOOR TO PLAY GOES        PEGGY ANN McKAY!!!

 

hooray

 

Thank you Shel Silverstein for making it Saturday…says the very, very tired teacher as she goes out the door to shop!!
