It's bears first day of school and he's a bit reluctant to go.  Mama says all bears love school; Bear isn't so sure.  But school turns out to be full of fun--painting pictures, listening to stories, and making new friends.  Maybe this bear will like school after all.

class dismissedClass Dismissed
by Allan Woodrow
Class 507 is terrible, and one day, after a particularly disastrouos science experiment, Ms. Bryce quits and walks out in the middle of class, and the school office never finds out.  At first all of the fifth graders enjoy goofing off, but after a few days that starts to get boring.  The students begin to realize that school without a teacher is not easy, cooperating is difficult, and keeping a secret is harder than they thought.
