I am tired of making mistakes. I am tired of not knowing the right thing to say. I am tired of all kinds of problems. I want to be perfect. AND, I just found out a way to make it happen.
The latest read aloud in Reading Workshop is Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days written by Stephen Manes. After the first chapter, I got some really good news. Dr. K. Pinkerton Silverfish is going to tell me how to become perfect.
No more bad jokes! No more saying the wrong thing and upsetting people! Every student will learn all that they are supposed to every day. Life will be great and it all starts next week. In just a few days, you will see a new me and I WILL BE PERFECT!
What about you my brilliant young students? Are you going to join me and become perfect? Will you soon become flawless? How will that change things?
Oh, by the way, wanna is not a word and if I was already perfect, I would have said want to in the title.
