Ronald’s Turn Excerpt:

“We get to finish the bridge today!” Dizzy said. “Are you excited Ronald?” Ronald smiled and said, “Absolutely!” Although he started to feel a little sad. That was the second time someone mentioned that the bridge would be finished today. It would be completed, and the roller had hardly done anything. Ronald took a deep breath, in and out (deep breath) and concentrated on the fun he would have working with the team today. While Ronald talked himself back up, the contractor joined the construction vehicles.

“Good morning, everyone. Today, as I’m sure you all know, we’ll be finishing up the bridge. Barry the Barge will meet us at the water again and is ready to carry you across. Connor, Barry will help you place the slabs that Dizzy poured last week. Ellie, Barry will carry you, Danny and Dory to add the asphalt. Ronald, you’ll finish up by smoothing the road out. Dizzy, we don’t have anything for you today. We’ll see you when we get back.” Then with a smile the Contractor said. “OK! Let’s get this done.”
