Alexander wakes up on the wrong side of the bed. Usually that's just a saying but this time Alexander woke up with gum in his hair and on the side of the bed that had a skateboard on it. His day only gets worse and never better. It ends with his mother telling him that bad days happen to everybody. I would use this in my classroom to have students write about a time when they had their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
