The teacher and her first grade students were asked to do a play for the school. When the teacher asked the students which one they should do, they all wanted, "The Three Billy Groats Gruff".
As they decided on their roles for the play, Danny was the biggest, strongest goat and Paul was going to be the troll. The students were all happy with their roles...all except for Jim. This made Jim angry and he began to cause a disturbance amongst the other students. The teacher gave him the role of the river, this still did not make Jim happy.
When performance night came, who knew Jim would turn out to be such a big help...especially Paul.  (Pamela Red Willow,, college student)
