Lesson Story:

Freddie is feeling very hungry and decides to eat his snack during lessons. Ms. Ann is not amused and teaches Freddie and the other students about good and bad manners. Freddie is not at his best today and doubles down on his bad behavior by spilling his crumbs everywhere. Ms. Ann asks that he clean up the mess. Lisa helps him to do it quickly. These actions derail the math lesson of the day, leading Ms. Ann to teach them about good and bad manners instead.
