That's Weird Grandma TWG Weekly Update
Join us tonight for “That’s Weird, Grandma”, featuring two stories new to the Grandma stage:
First, an adaptation of a story written in Spanish from our Columbia Explorer’s Academy program that advocates for prioritizing homework:
ES IMPORTANTE TAREA by Emilio A, Columbia Explorer’s Academy
1. Yo creo que la tarea es importante porque tenemos que haler cosas en la casa. 2. Yo creo que la tarea es importante porque asi apendemos en la casa y la escuela. 3. Yo creo que la tarea es importante porque no has que damos todo el dia jugando sin hacer nada o perdiento el tiempo.
En conclusión el mundo reira meiror con seria mejor.
HOMEWORK IS IMPORTANT 1. I think homework is important because her have to do stuff at at home. 2. I think homework is important because by doing it, we learn at home and in school. 3. I think homework is important because you shouldn’t spend all day playing without doing anything or wasting time.
In conclusion, the world would be better.
Secondly, from the new Barrel of Monkeys Level Two Program, an adaptation of a dialogue that is informed by the authors’ character monologues, which reveal a little back story…
GOOD DAY STORY by Malissa C and Diamond R, Willa Cather Academ
Characters: Prince, Princess
PRINCESS: (nervous) I need to pick a dress but don’t know which one to pick.
PRINCE: I will pick for you and we shall be on our way.
PRINCESS: (excited) Oh my God thank you! I was having such a hard time, but I don’t have heels and a crown.
PRINCE: (impatient) We’ll buy a white crown and white heels on our way there. (They get in a black and white limo)

Then her mom wake her up so she can go and eat breakfast and go to work at New York City. The restaurant she went to is Subway and she got on an elevator to take care of her baby sister. The end.
PRINCE AND PRINCESS by Diamond R
I was born in July 19 and I am 23 years old. I am afraid of cats because cats have hair over clothes. I tried to wash cats but they scratch me. It hurts! I’ll never buy cats no more because I had to buy so many bandaids to make the scratches stop hurting. I found the princess and we got married and lived in a Royal house in New York. There was only 1 cat that lived with me in one royal room. It was the kitchen. We cook breakfast and have a nice dinner and live happily ever after. Then they had a baby named Zoe. The End
For discounted tickets, say: “I don’t have heels and a crown!”
