It was Friday the day of the big Spelling Bee. Hank had studied so hard the night before and had every word memorized. He was sure that he would win the bee and get an A in spelling on the first report card of the year. Hank met his friends outside their apartment building. The three kids continued to walk to school on the cold windy morning.
When they arrived at school, Ms. Adolf was standing at the front of the room. The spelling bee was about to begin. She called for a volunteer to start the spelling bee. Nick, Hank’s nemesis raised his hand and began spelling. When Nick was done it was Hank’s turn. He walked up as confident as could be. Ms. Adolf told him to spell the word memorize. Then Hank choked, his mind went blanked and was sent to the principal’s office.

When they arrived at the deli Hank’s mom asked how school was and to see his report card. Hank and his friends walked back to the kitchen with his mom to talk about the report cards.
