Learning to read

As the new school year begins, my list of funnies is already growing.

Part of my responsibility for the beginning of the school year is to assist the kindergarten students with learning bus routine before and after school, and the lunch routine. One boy raised his hand as he was sitting quietly eating his lunch, I noticed the concerned look on his face as I approached.

I leaned down, "What's wrong?" I asked.
"I can't read and I don't know what to do with my lunch?" he said slightly panicked.
Now I was confused, "What do you mean?"
He replied, "My teacher said at recess we should put our lunch box in the bucket with her name on it and she hasn't taught me how to read yet!"
