Mrs. Millie has lots of fun teasing her kindergartners. She tells them to hang up their goats, get out their paper and penguins, wash their hands with soap and walrus, and eat gorilla cheese sandwiches for lunch.
The children think Mrs. Millie is hilarious. They have fun correcting her "mistakes." Finally, at the end of the day, they get on the octopus to go home!
