Maria's starts school

My name is Pedro, and my sister's name is Maria. Monday was the first day of school after the holidays, so we got up at seven o'clock. We put our new books into our school bags, and I had breakfast. Maria couldn't eat any food because she was worried about starting school. I said, 'Don't be afraid, Maria, you will like going to school.' Maria smiled and held my hand.

The bus came early so we had to run to catch it. On the bus, we sat down and put our school bags on the floor. The bus started suddenly, and everything fell out of our school bags! There was a woman behind us, and she picked up one of our books. She read Maria's name on the front of it, and then she smiled. She said, 'Hello, Maria, I'm your new teacher. My name's Mrs Lester.' We were very surprised. Mrs Lester asked some more questions, and then, in a few minutes, we arrived at school. Mrs Lester said. 'I'll see you in class, Maria,' and Maria smiled a big smile. I asked Maria, 'Are you feeling worried now?' and she laughed and said, ' No! But there's just one problem - I'm hungry~ Where's the school snack shop?'

I think that Maria will be happy at our school.
