Earning Money The Big Egg

Earning Money
Alex, Nicole, and Vickie are friends who live in the same neighborhood. They wanted to earn some money to buy Christmas presents. “It's winter,” said Vickie. “There is lots of snow on the ground. Maybe people will hire us to shovel the snow on their driveways and sidewalks.” “We need to print out fliers and pass them around to all the houses,” said Nicole. Alex’s Dad helped the kids print out fliers. The three friends went to all the houses and put a flier in everyone's mailbox. First, Mrs. Jones hired the kids to shovel snow from her driveway. She said, “I have twin baby girls. I am much too busy to shovel the snow myself.” Then, Mrs. Smith hired them. She said, “I am very old, and the snow is much too heavy for me to move.” Then, Mr. Lee hired them. He said, “My driveway is much too big to shovel all by myself. Can you help me?” The kids worked very hard shoveling snow. It was cold, but they also had fun. They earned a total of $30. Now they could buy wonderful Christmas presents for their friends and families.
