Dane and Maggie were poised at the edge of the Alderwood Mall fountain, ready to receive their wishing pennies.
"What are you going to wish for?" Aunt Monica asked Maggie.
"I'm going to wish for a stuffed animal teddy bear," Maggie said.
"Dane, what are you going to wish for?"
"I'm going to wish for a penny to throw in there," Dane declared.

Ellery had been sick all week. She told me sadly, "I feel a little unconscious in my belly."
When she returned to school after missing a whole week, Ellery was very excited to see everyone and to have everyone see her. It happened to be Valentines Day, however, and her classmates were all buzzing about what kind of valentines and party snacks they had brought.
Disappointed at their lack of interest in her, Ellery said tragically, "It's like I don't even exist!"
Dane discovered a cut on his foot. He immediately called Mimi to tell her all about his "short cut."
Dane and Mimi were playing with beads. A little later, Dane asked, "Mimi, could we play with those beetles again?"
Dane: Mimi, could you give me too many crackers?

Ellery was working on her homework.
Kim has 7 toy cars. Sam has 6 toy cars. How many toy cars do they have? Show your strategy for solving.
Ellery drew herself with a talk bubble saying, "Mom, what's 7+6?" and Mom with a talk bubble saying, "13."
