A New SchoolWhen Tyrone got off the school bus at his home one day, he saw a yellow bulldozer down the street. He wanted to take a look, but he had homework to do. The next day, there was a backhoe next to the bulldozer. Both machines roared. Tyrone thought it looked busy down there. Not long after that, he saw a cement truck. The back was spinning as it unloaded the wet, gray cement. Each day, something new appeared. Steel beams stretched into the sky. Bricks climbed the walls. It was starting to look like a real building.
When he saw a group of men wearing white hardhats, Tyrone asked his mom if he could take a closer look. The building looked even bigger as he walked toward it.T255

Tyrone smiled. He could not wait. When he went to that new school, he would not have to take the bus. He could play on the playground all the time, too. Yes, Tyrone said, I am luckier than you know!T255
