Just Like Me.
I like to tease,
I like to please,
And do my lessons with great ease.
I like to dance, and see and listen,
So watch my bright eyes and see if they glisten,
Or do they twinkle, twinkle, twinkle?

A Joke.
Grandmother: How do you like the whistle I gave you, Terryl?
Terryl: It is the best present you ever gave me, Grandmother, because mother gives me a nickel every day I do not blow it.

My Teddy Bear
One day I brought my Teddy to school. His name is, Candy. He was very quiet. He did not cry. He looked very wise. He sat in a little chair. He read in our Weekly Reader. I helped him pledge allegiance to our flag.
