Stop Clowning Around!
By Kathleen W. Redman
1 Traci likes school.
2 She likes her teacher.
3 She likes the other girls and boys.
4 She likes her books.
5 She likes learning new things.
6 But there is one thing she does not like. She does not like to hear her teacher say, "Traci, stop clowning around!"
7 Traci liked to make people laugh. It was fun.
8 She wiggled her nose when Mark was reading. He looked at her and laughed.
9 "Stop clowning around, Traci!" Mrs. Gill said. "You made Mark laugh."
10 Traci looked at her book. She tried to be still. It was hard.
11 She crossed her eyes when Laine was reading. She looked at Traci and laughed.
12 "Stop clowning around, Traci!" Mrs. Gill said. "Now Laine is laughing, too."
13 "I'm sorry, Mrs. Gill," Traci said. "I will be still."
