On a Valentine's Day many years ago, when I was teaching first grade, we put on running skits. The skits were the highlight of our year. The kids each had a part and each skit ended with running. A variety of reasons to run were presented. This skit dealt with making you feel better when you were worried about a loved one - in this case a pet. |

BECKY AND BILLY|
Becky: Billy, I am sad.
Billy: Becky, I see your face. I see that you are sad. Why are you sad Becky?
Becky: Billy, I am sad because my pet rabbit, Whiskers, is sick. Mother took Whiskers to the vet. Whiskers is old.
Billy: Becky, I was sad when my cat, Blackie, died. Blackie was old, too.
Becky: But I love Whiskers.
Billy: I know, Becky. I know.
Becky: Billy, what should I do? I am so sad.
Billy: Let's run, Becky. Let's run, Gingerbread Girl. Running will make you feel better.
Becky: Yes, Billy. Let's run. Running always makes me feel better.
