Little Squirrel’s First Day at School

It was Little Squirrel’s first day at school. Little Squirrel did not go to kindergarten like his other classmates. Everything was new and fresh to him. Little Squirrel was totally at a loss with great expectations for the new year. He had been told a lot about school but he had no first hand knowledge.

His parents said: don’t do this or that, Little  Squirrel. Then they would say never mind. Your teacher will straighten you out once you get to school. His brothers and sisters would say: Ooooh ,  Little Squirrel, you are going to be in a lot of big trouble once you get to school if you don’t change your ways! Your teacher is going to get you!!! Little Squirrel’s friends who had gone to public kindergarten would tell him: Always be careful to be on your best behavior at school. That way you don’t find yourself in the principal;s office.

Little Squirrel was afraid to death of school. He had heard so many frightful  stories about school. School was just an awful, gruesome place to be. His teacher would be a ghastly old witch who would treat the children cruelly. School was just a savage place to be.

There Little Squirrel sat waiting for the arrival of the  ghastly old witch. In walked a pretty young woman who said my name is Miss Bird. I am your teacher. Little Squirrel sat there waiting for the hammer to fall.  Little Squirrel said to himself: o’k , she is pretty, but, I bet she is as mean as all get out. Give Miss Bird a couple of days and the real Miss Bird will come out! She will end up being an angry Bird!

Little Squirrel kept waiting for the other shoe to fall. As the day passed,  Little Squirrel  kept learning new and interesting things. Finally, Little Squirrel had to admit he liked school and Miss Bird really was a nice teacher. When she showed them her puppets, she was amusing and delightful.  They were entertaining yet acceptable as she got her message and rules over.  She never diverted the true meaning of her message while she made it pleasurable for the children.  While enjoying the real meaning of the lesson, their understanding of school rules were firmly  stamped in their memory and appreciated.  It is not the teacher’s duty to force children to obey laws.  Parents should do that before they leave home. However,  when children break laws,  there are consequences.

There were some bad kids in his class Miss Bird had to discipline. At the end of this year, Little Squirrel, will tell other children if they behave well, SCHOOL IS FUN!!!
