Goody Two-Shoes was a good little girl.
She had no father or mother.
A kind man and his wife asked her to live

with them.
They gave her two shoes.
She jumped up and down, crying

“Two shoes, two shoes,

See my pretty two shoes ! ”
That is how she came to be named Goody

Two-Shoes.
Every one liked Goody Two-Shoes.
She was so good to them.
She liked the children best.
She helped them with their letters.
She cut the letters out of wood.
Then the children named them.
Can you name all your letters ?

It was seven o'clock in the morning.
Goody Two-Shoes ran up to Farmer

Wilson's door. Tap, tap!
“Who is there ?"
“Goody Two-Shoes."
Out ran little Billy. “How do,” said

little Billy. Goody Two-Shoes put down all her

wooden letters like this: b a 1 h k mo q su w y x fd cegin

help Sally Simpson. “Bow-wow!” said the dog at the door. “Come in,” said Sally's mother. “We

are glad to see you." Goody Two-Shoes asked Sally to spell

top and ball and hen.. Sally could spell them as fast as you can.

Farmer Cook had three children.
They jumped up and down when Goody

Two-Shoes came to the door. Goody Two-Shoes gave them her letters. “What did you have for dinner ?” “Bread,” said little Tom. “Spell it,” said she.

B-r-e-a-d, spelled Tom with the letters. “Now, Polly, what did you have ?” “Apple pie.” Then she spelled it. Now, let us play Goody Two-Shoes. Who will play Billy? Who can spell apple pie?
