One week after school started a big truck pulled up in front of Amber's house. She watched out the window as the men took boxes and furniture into the house next door. She looked for people, too. At last she saw a little boy about her size. He was looking inside the big truck. The moving man patted him on the head and went inside the truck again. The little boy smiled when the man came out with his shiny, black bicycle! "This is going to be fun, Mommy!" said Amber. "I am going to have a new friend! May I go outside?" she asked.
Place in order… Kate made a snowball. Kate went outside to play in the snow with her friends. Kate threw the snowball at Jimmy.

Place in order… Jaida told him she lost her favorite doll Tasha. Jaida was very upset. It was a nice day outside but… Jamal went to tell her mom what happened. Jamal was happily riding his bike when he saw Jaida; he asked her why she was upset.
When Amber got home from school she saw a big box on the table. It looked like a birthday present, and the tag said, "For Amber." But it was not Amber's birthday! "What is this?" Amber asked her mother. "It is for you, Amber. You are such a good helper! I want to say thank you with this surprise." Amber was excited as she opened the big box. Her eyes got very big, and her smile got very big, too! What do you think was inside?
