Molly and Maria were ten-year-old twin sisters.
They were going to their new school in New York. They had just moved
Molly was so excited and happy, but Maria wasn’t. She was not mad
either; she just was never excited and she did not want to go to 5th
grade. She knew she had to go, so she said goodbye to her mom and walked
out of the door with Molly.
Later, Molly and Maria were walking, so they raced to school, which
really cheered Maria up. When they got to their new school, they walked
inside. Molly fixed her hair and Maria sulked and walked right behind
Molly so no one would notice her.
When they got to their class, Maria and Molly were stared at. Then a boy
came to them and said, “You look newish.”
Molly replied, “Yes, we are,” and they walked away to their seats.
Molly found her seat, and so did Maria, but hers was all the way around
the corner. Maria did not want to sit next to people she did not know.
So she tore off the name tag on her original desk and tore off the name
tag on the desk next to her sister and secretly switched them.
“ATTENTION!” screamed Ms. Hart. Then she said, “OK, we have new
students. Molly and Maria, please introduce yourselves.”
Molly walked up to the front and pulled Maria on the way. Molly said,
“Hi, I’m Molly and this is Maria. We are twins from Chicago, and we are
really excited to be here. I like to bake and cook, and Maria and I like
to race each other.”
“Hi Molly! Hi Maria!” called out Zara. “I’m eleven years old!” shouted
“OK, I think we have had enough of that. So thank you for introducing
yourself, Molly and Maria. Now it is time for Art. Everybody go, leave,
bye bye, get out of here!” said Ms. Hart.
Maria and Molly thought it seemed like just a second till the recess
Molly and Maria went on the monkey bars and made two friends, Zara and
Sarah. They were both older than Molly and Maria. When Zara and Sarah
were about to show Molly and Maria their secret hideout, the bell rang.
They said, “Bye.”
Molly and Maria walked home. They rang the bell to their house, and
their mom opened the door. They screamed, “It was the best school day
“Even for you Maria?” asked Mom.
“Yes, even for me.”
