One day, Bernie and Norman thought they were going to the dog park. Then they saw a ginormous yellow bus pull up to Max’s house and they were freaked out because they didn’t know what it was doing there. Then, they started to bark at the bus. Max said, “Time to go outside!” Max walked them up to the bus stop and Bernie and Norman thought, “Why isn’t he driving us?!” Max got the dogs on the bus and they were fine with all of the other children. The dogs walked around and the bus driver told Bernie and Norman to, ” Sit down!” So they went back to their seats and talked to each other and ate some dog treats.
When they got to school, the doors opened up and Bernie saw that they were not at their house! Norman and Bernie got out and saw that Max wasn’t there either! Instead they saw strangers! They saw teachers and a bunch of children. Bernie was worried that she would never be able to go home again! Norman was worried too! The teachers came and said, “Aw some new students! Please come in to the building!” When they got inside, they went to their classrooms and Bernie and Normans’ aides were there. Their aides said, “You guys are going to the Learning Center right away to meet your teacher!” Bernie and Norman got upset and their teacher brought a Social Behavior Map for them to fill out. They did not want to do it. The teacher called BethAnne to come and help. When BethAnne got there, Bernie and Norman kept barking. BethAnne called the social psychologist to help. BethAnne sent Bernie and Norman to the principal’s office! Finally, the principal got them to fill out the Social Behavior Map and they went back to class.
While they were in class, they started to do work and they went back to the Learning Center. After they did all their work, it was trade-in time! It went well. Bernie and Norman earned some time together in the break area and they played with balls. Once their seven minutes was up, they barked to stay until the announcements came on! Soon, the aide said, “One more minute!” They started to bark. But the buses were coming and there was no time to fool around! Eventually, Bernie and Norman got on the bus.
Bernie and Norman wanted to stand up on the bus, but the bus driver kept saying, “Sit down! No switching seats!” When they got home, they looked in their folders and saw homework! They chewed it up because they did not want to do it! They put the pieces in Max’s closet. Max went to check on them and saw that the closet door was shut. Max checked to make sure they hadn’t chewed anything and discovered the mess in his closet! Max felt angry! Max made Bernie and Norman fill out a social behavior map! They promised not to do it again. Max can’t wait to find out how school goes tomorrow!
