I said, "Ryan, are you ok?"
In his most dramatic voice he responded, "I can't help it. I chew on my shirt."
So I suggested that he let go of it...and let it dry.
To that he replied, shivering slightly, "I can't let go of it...if I do I will freeze myself up."
"Ryan," I said, "If you let go of it and it dries you will get warmer." He just shook his head.
Later on, in my classroom, I noticed that he was chewing on his shirt again...
On my way to school today, maybe I'll stop at a pet store and pick up a couple of "chew toys."

The best 1st grader story I have heard in a long time...more than a bit Ramona-ish or JunieB-like.
