TODD & BEN By Tai, age 8
The smell of frog spread through the class. All the kids knew it came from Todd. Todd was fat and big. He sounded loud. The teacher told the kids, “You need to do your spelling words.”
Todd did not do his own work. He copied from Ben and Ben copied from Todd. Ben told the teacher about the copying. The teacher said, “The two of you will sit down five minutes after school.”
The bell rang. All the kids went home except for Todd and Ben. Todd tried to hit Ben but missed.
“You’re cuckoo,” Ben said then ran away.
Todd started to cry. His cheeks turned red.
The teacher said, “Todd now you have to stay twenty minutes and Ben, you need to go.”

My name is Tai. I am eight years old. I live in San Francisco with my mom and dad. I like to play with a ball with my dad. I am good at math and jumping. I want to get better at making jokes. I want to be a clown when I grow up. Sometimes my friend calls me mean and this confuses me because I think I am nice. If I were an animal I would be a bear because bears are big and eat a lot of fish. I wish I had a pet dog.
