  17. I Raised My Hand in Classby Kenn Nesbitt I raised my hand in class this morning,sitting in the back.The teacher didn't see, I think.Instead she called on Jack.I stretched my hand up higher,but she called on Zach and Zoe.I started bouncing up and down,but, still, she called on Chloe.I waved my arms but, even so,she didn't call on me.She called on Bryan, Brooklyn, Billy,Bailey, Ben, and Bree.She called on Taylor, Tristan, Thomas,Trinity, and Ty.Then, finally, she called my name.I breathed a heavy sigh.She asked me for the answer.I just frowned and clenched my knees,and said, "I've no idea,but could I use the bathroom, please?"

  18. Don’t Ever Bite Your Sisterby Kenn Nesbitt Don't ever bite your sister.Don't kick her in the shin.Don't slap your sister sillyand don't sock her on the chin.Don't tape a "Kick Me" posterupon your sister's back.Don't take your stinky socks offand then put them in her pack.Don't purchase plastic spidersand place them on her head.Don't leave your rubber rattlesnakeinside your sister's bed.Don't do this to your sisterfor, if you ever do,I'm pretty sure she may do somethingeven worse to you.

  19. My Teacher Took My iPodby Kenn Nesbitt My teacher took my iPod.She said they had a rule;I couldn't bring it into classor even to the school.She said she would return it;I'd have it back today.But then she tried my headphones onand gave a click on Play.She looked a little startled,but after just a whileshe made sure we were occupiedand cracked a wicked smile.Her body started swaying.Her toes began to tap.She soon was grooving in her seatand rocking to the rap.My teacher changed her mind.She said it's now okayto bring my iPod into class.She takes it every day.
