It was officially spring, although it didn’t feel like spring. Summer couldn’t be far behind. With warmer weather, the “Can Dos” were looking forward to bike riding every day. Some of them had two wheel bikes and were good at riding them. Others were still learning to ride a two-wheel bike.
No matter, thought Policewoman Paula, they all need to to know how to be safe when bike riding.
After she thanked Miss Pat for having her, and greeted the “Can Dos” she talked to the children about how much fun bike riding can be if you follow the rules of bike riding and pay attention to what you are doing while riding.
She soon knew that the class need help learning how to time talk…that is to say what time they see on the clock.
For instance, when the small hand is on the 3 and the big hand is on the 5 what do you say? Do you say twenty-five minutes after three or do you say three twenty-five?
So, why not join the “Can Do” kids on the computer and see how you do with telling time?
Miss Pat called the class to order and announced that the riddle contest would we held right after lunch. The”Can Dos” could hardly wait!
Wendy was the first to say a riddle: I keep things safe. I have a hole in my middle. A key will open me. What am I?
Then Bobby went: I know the numbers 1 through 12. I have two hands. My hands move all day long. What am I?
It was Orrie’s turn next: My name is the same as what I do. People try to swat me. What am I?
Hector had a good one too: I’m round. I’m made of metal. I have a picture of George Washington on me. Kids save me in a piggy bank. What am I?
Nellie shared her riddle: I am made out of wood or plastic. I am straight. Kids use me to measure things. What am I?
How did he beat every one of his friends at checkers? When asked by a group of the “Can Dos” who lost to him, Willie told them that he played checkers often. That is why he is so good at it. Well, just as he was saying that, Grandpa Dooley walked by and heard what he said.
“Willie,” said Grandpa Dooley, “Why don’t you share how you really got so good at playing checkers”? “Oh, do I have to,” said Willie. ” No,” said Grandpa Dooley, “but it would be the fair thing to do.”
The “Can Dos” all asked him to show them the game. Grandpa Dooley offered to install the game on the computers at the community center if Miss Sue agreed it was okay to do.
Why don’t you take a look at the game with the “Can Dos”? Why not play a game or so?
