Onze klas is nog steeds in gebruik als kliniek ‘De goede dokter’ waar het mevrouwtje met Rambamboelie naar toe moet omdat het hondje mauwt als een kat, kraait als een haan, sist als een slang en loeit als een koe. Gelukkig is de apotheek van de dokter voldoende uitgerust om Rambamboelie uiteindelijk te genezen. Kinderen spelen het verhaal feilloos na en gebruiken steeds uitgebreidere passende zinnen. De kinderen hebben een patiëntendossier gemaakt voor Ramabamboelie. Het is een ‘tap file’ waarin een map ‘behandelingen’ en een map ‘onderzoeken’ zit. In de map behandelingen stoppen de kinderen het verslag van het doktersbezoek. Ook hebben we uitgevonden dat niet alleen mensen een skelet hebben maar ook honden, dat je het skelet kunt fotograferen met een röntgenapparaat. De kinderen hebben een röntgenfoto nagemaakt van Rambamboelie met wit krijt op zwart papier en deze in de map ‘onderzoeken’ gestopt. Spelling: letterdief, poortwachter, bankletters, koningsletter en vriendjesflat.
