Entering quietly and finding a seat by the window,hoping i dont drift off to God knows where as i found myself,or rather my teacher finding me doing oh so too many times!Perhaps this year wont be such a bore in class as Mr. Belatears class was for two whole years!

Hello Miss Tee i say as i sit BUT  all too soon to get up and get the supplies i may need for this assignment.

Sitting thinking about the questions and how i want to it,i wonder if more people will come.Grabbing myselfs mind BACK to the project at hand!

    I'm pretty excuited that we're having school again and I rush in, stopping short because class seems to have already started!  I sit down at my old desk and open up my backpack and take out my pencils and books and study the board and our first assignment.

    "Hi Laura,Im glad to see you again. That's a very good question.

    It is your choice  either one or even a combination is fine.I'd like for each of you to do what you feel most comfortable doing for this project. You could be very creative or not at all or somewhere in between. smiley​ This will not be graded."

    Having taken great care to get dressed neatly, I walk with a limp into class in my grey pinafore dress with read shield shaped HeadGirl badge  on and white bowed long socks on thinking "I hope I'm presentable for Miss" before finding a wooden desk next to Laura asking her if I may sit next to her.

    Seeing the chalked topics for our project, I make a note in my jotter and begin to think through what Miss is looking for before deciding how to contribute.

    I nod my head, satisfied with the teacher's answer and start to think, absently chewing on my pencil as I do so.

    I give Joanne a big grin when she comes in and sits by me.  I think of whispering to her, but I don't want to get us in trouble on the first day, so I focus on my paper.

    "Hi Joanne,so glad you made it ." smiley

    Seeing Joanne seated and getting right to work, I continue  writing the names of the students down in a book and various other things.Glancing up I see Milly has her hand up  and I go over to see she is done.
    Kneeling down and speaking in a quiet voice I ask her if she can help me out while the rest continue to do the project.
    Taking her paper and placing it on my desk turning around to see she has followed.

    "Thank you Milly ,we are going to go over them all later. For now I'd like you to wash the blackboard we arent using right now. Can you manage it ok  or shall I show you how?" I ask while handing her the bucket and sponge.

    Finds the school and makes my way over to the classroom, entering quietly and finding a desk to sit at in the back of the room, waving slightly at the other kids already there, 'hey'.

    Looking at the blackboard I quickly scribble down some answers to the questions on a piece of paper

    Miss Tee wrote:

    1. listen to music on phone, text with my friends or watch YouTube vids

    2. just one? I got three: dishes, cleaning my room and mowing the lawn

    3. definitely the carnival since i love the food and rides and activities there! When are we going? laugh

    4. a pogo stick and see how far I could jump on it and try and do cool tricks with it

    5. opening up to people

    Slides the paper towards the end of my desk and leaves it there

    Seeing Milly and Joanne are on their way ok ,I turn to walk towards my desk and see someone tiny and fuzzy peeking in then popping out and a bigger but less fuzzy and not so big peeker inner peeking in! surprisesmiley hmm "Hello" I call out as I walk towards the peekers to see who and why they are peeking. Nearing them I greet them again but in a quieter voice and now knowing who the peekers are. " Hello again would you both like to come in and join us?"

    Smiling seeing Rj ." Hello Rj good to see you again!I''m glad you came."laugh

    "Now than how bout it Kiddo, would you like to join us? Henry can sit with you or have a seat of his own ,there's plenty of them to choose from. " smiley

    While I started working on

    While I started working on the assignment, I've drifted off into daydreams and gotten distracted.  I look around and see that other kidz are turning in their assignments and then look at my own paper and see that it is still blank.  I look around and panic because it seems that everyone is getting done!

    I will words to appear on my paper, bite me lip, study the assignment again, but the words don't come!

    I notice that water drops are appearing on my paper and realize that I am crying!

    I look anxiously over towards the teacher to see if she notices and if she's angry, because I don't want to get my friend in trouble.

    I turn to Laura and  say "I'm

    I turn to Laura and  say "I'm not sure it would be quite right for me to do it for you  but I'll give you some clues perhaps. All you really need do is just answer the five questions and write it down plus I know what you'd say for some of this anyway so here we go." For the first question, you enjoy reading heaps so you can write Reading. The second is a bit harder but anything you don't really like but have to would do like sorting your clothes to wash. The third one- you don't like zoos, so write Carnival. Question four if you don't know which, just write any one as that'll be okay. Finally what'cha scared most of - I think you find it hard  meet new people  from what I knows of you  so if I'm right you just write these down neatly and hand it it. Got that?"

    Turning to check on the class

    Turning to check on the class while Kiddo and Henry decide if theyd like to join us or not, I see Laura and Joanne chatting .

    Walking over I see Lauras' paper is blank and I am concerned as to why.

    Kneeling down and whispering in hopes of not embarrassing Laura ,making eye contact,I see she looks as though she has  been crying.

    "Laura, sweetheart,  is everything ok?Is there anything I can help you with?"

    I nod as Joanne advises me about what to write and then looking up, I warn her, "The teacher is coming!"

    I still haven't written anything down yet, so I blush when Miss Tee comes by to check on me, "Sorry, Ma'am!  I was having trouble getting started.  The words just wouldn't appear on the page.  I tried and tried.  Jo was just helping me..." But then I think that might sound bad!  "She wasn't writing anything!  Just helping me think what I should say and stuff!"

    "Umm...I'm sorry I wasn't writing.  I tried and tried.  I did, honestly!  Maybe there's something wrong with my writing part?  I read lots and lots...I just think writing is hard!"

    I smile to the child kind of

    I smile to the child kind of relieved its nothing more serious going on that had her upset.
    This though I feel we can overcome without tears or hopefully not many,for Lauras sake.One of the last things I'd want to do as her teacher is have her feeling fustrated to the point of tears , challenged yes ,but not discouraged.

    "Writing is hard you are right! smileyIt's ok Laura, I am glad you told me rather than go the year struggling on your own. This is part of what school is for,to help you learn to write." smiley

    "Thank you for helping her," addressing Joanne.smiley"I'm pleased though you didn't do her work for her , as that wouldn't help Laura in the long run at all . 
     

    "Would it be easier for you Laura if Joanne asks you the questions and you answer them out loud than write them down?
    I really want your answers Laura and not someone elses."smiley

    I look at the teacher and over to Jo, relieved that no one is getting in trouble.  But I start thinking about answering the questions aloud and everyone staring at me and decide that I'd rather not have that much attention.  So, I shake my head.

    "No, it's OK.  Jo's help got the writing started, I think..." I fade off because I'm not feeling overly confident. "Jo, it's OK."  Which sounds a bit harsh, so I give her a smile so she doesn't think I'm sending her away or being mean.  I look back at the teacher, "I can do it."

    "Hi Linn!"

    I look around us. "Things are awfully quiet here (but you probably figured that out already, eh?).  I've been here times when dozen or more kidz are running around and playing, but these days it might just be two or three or sometime just me.  I know some folks like to chat.  I only play out here on the threads cause my big can only play once or twice a day and sometimes not even that!

    "Do you have some sort of adventure you'd like to have?  Since school is kind of quiet (we have trouble keeping teachers here), maybe we could go play somewhere?"

    Yay! ADVENCHER TIME!

    Yep, I've noticed a lot of names I recognized from a zillion years ago when I was first here, an wow it was hopping! which was really cool -- but only a few participating here an there might be a nice way for me to get used to letting my little out. I used to come and kinda watch before the storm, but was too shy to say much back then.

    But that was eons ago and I've learned a LOT about me since then. So I'm really happy GI is back and that I found y'all again.

    *****

    My eyes lite up.

    "I'd love to! I saw a beautiful beach when the ferry came in and it looked like there might be a cove. Do you think we'd see any little fishies like in da akwarium?" (ACK sorrie sorrie thas a big word!)

    I pull my hair up int'a high ponytail.

    "Or maybe jes hiking around so we can gather things for our rooms, kinda like a treasure hunt? What do you think? You must know all the best spots, where's the coolest place ta see a sunset here?"

    I bounce in my seat an look in my bag, some snacks, lots of water, notebooks an folders fer skool (looks around fer a cubbie an puts my workbook an special pencil in there) then finally takes out Mr. Bunnie (my stuffie, he's purple an comes wif me anywhere I go) and puts my backpack on.
