Gnat & Corky Pinpoints

Davander wants to become a computer engineer. He is smart, kind-hearted, respectful, and considerate of everyone. Davander is thankful for his parents, bed, clothes, cat and his second grade teacher, Mrs. Kullman. Davander wishes he could teleport around the world to see everything, Gnat & Corky hope we get to go with him when he does.

 Davander Giving Thanks

I’m going to be a computer engineer! That’s someone who takes science and engineering and math and mixes it all up to make awesome things- like this teleportation machine I made. I call it The Davander Explorer.

Hey, you want to come with me?  I’m jumping in my teleportation machine and going all around the world to give things to people who need them. I’ve been collecting items for the trip; clothes, shoes, gum, blankets-but not the cat! Whiskers stays with me. She’s my pet. If we meet someone along the way that wants a cat, we’re just going to have to help them find another one, OK?

Now, let’s make sure we have everything on our checklist:

  1. MANNERS- look people in the eye when you meet them and say “please” and “thank you”. We’re gonna meet a lot of different people from all over the world. Let’s make sure they don’t get the wrong impression.

  2. LUCKY WHITE SOX HAT-never teleport without it! “Let's Go, Go-Go White Sox”- that’s the White Sox cheer, we can work on it when we’re teleporting all over.

  3. LOVE IN YOUR HEART-be thankful for what you have and people who love you; like your mom and dad, and Mrs. Kullman (she’s my teacher), and your bed, and your clothes.

Are you ready? If my calculations are correct…we just push this button right here and in three…two…one-WE’RE OOOOOFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
