A Sticky Situation
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Mary Anne did her math homework at her desk in her room. She liked to use a very sharp pencil. She thought that if her pencil had a perfect point, her mind would be sharp. That is what her dad told her!
 
2     Tap, tap, tap!
 
3     "Would you like a snack?" asked Dad.
 
4     "Yes, please," said Mary Anne.
 
5     "How about a slice of bread with grape jam?" asked Dad.
 
6     "Yummy!" said Mary Anne.
 
7     Dad went to the kitchen. He spread thick purple jam on the bread. It was shiny. It was sweet. Mary Anne loved jam on bread. He put the bread on a plate. He poured a glass of milk. Dad carried the snack up to Mary Anne.
 
8     Dad brought the tray into Mary Anne's room. Mary Anne talked to her dad and gobbled up her snack. A glistening glob of jam slid down Mary Anne's finger. She licked it off, but her hand was still sticky. She stacked her book and homework together so she could grab it in the morning. Dad then gave her a hug and said good night. Mary Anne got ready for bed. Soon she was asleep!
 
9     The next morning, Mary Anne grabbed her math book. She put it in her backpack. She ran out the door to school.
