Today’s sentence: “No, no that will not do.”
“No, no that will not do. Do it again.’
Sonia went back to her desk clutching her homework in her nail bitten hand.
Miss Ledder was a horrible teacher. She always made her feel silly, awkward and inadequate.
Sonia had no idea yet what she wanted to be, so in all innocence had said she would probably be a couch potato like her Dad as her Mum was always calling him one.
She put her head down, concentrating on keeping her letters within the lines on the paper.
By the time she had finished, she had a page of neat handwriting and took it up to her teacher’s desk.
Miss Ledder snatched it from her and began to read.
Her face softened a little when she read what Sonia now wanted to be when she grew up, then hardened when she read the final line that as a teacher, Sonia would be nicer than Miss Ledder!
