Puppy Dog Surprise
For this sketch, you will need 4 people; 1 to be the teacher, and 3 to be the different students. You will also need the following props: a box of chocolates, a ring of some kind, and a box with a brownie in it.
The setting is in a 3rd-grade classroom.
Jessica: (walks up to the teacher and says) “Ms. Johnson, I brought you cookies from my father’s bakery.”
Ms. Johnson: “ Thank you, Jessica. They look great.” (she picks one up to eat it) “And they taste great too!”
Annie: (walks up to the teacher and says) “Ms. Johnson?”
Ms. Johnson: “ Can I help you Annie?”
Annie: “I brought you a ring from my father’s jewelry shop.”
Ms. Johnson: “Oh my! It’s beautiful. Thank you so much!” (putting it on her finger) “It’s the perfect size!”
Billy: (walks up to the teacher) “I brought you something, too, Ms. Johnson.” (He gives the teacher a box with a brownie in it.)
Ms. Johnson: (a little perplexed) “Billy, it’s an empty box. Oh no! Wait! I’m sorry it has a small brownie in it.” (She picks it up to eat it and at the same time asks) “Does your father own a candy shop?”
Billy: “No. He owns a pet shop. I had a puppy in there for you, but I guess he got out on the way to school.” (He then points to the half-eaten chocolate the teacher is holding) “Ms. Johnson, that isn’t a brownie. That’s a little present from the puppy!”
