Pet Day   

1     Angela's face broke into a big smile as she came to the door of her classroom. The teacher had taped a zebra picture to the door with the words "Welcome to Pet Day!"
 
2     When she looked inside her second grade classroom, she saw that many other children already had their pets with them. Charlie had a white mouse in a cage. The mouse had a wheel it could spin when it wanted to run.
 
3     Justin's small white dog sat in his lap while it shook. Angela thought it looked afraid and wondered if it always shook like that. She hoped someone from his family would take the poor dog home soon. She was glad her own pet would not be there until the end of the day.
 
4     Soon Mrs. Adams, her teacher, went to close the classroom door. It was time for the day to begin. She held up her hand to the class, and everyone began to hush. As soon as they were quiet, she started to speak.
 
5     "It is nice to see so many pets here. I'm sure many more will come to visit before the end of the day. Even though the room looks like a zoo, we still have work to do," she began.
