Story 44: I Keep Calling Out the Answers
Every day my teacher asks us questions.
She does this to make us think about things.
We put our hand up if we know the answer.
We wait until the teacher asks us to speak.
Sometimes she asks me.
Sometimes she doesn't.
But sometimes I shout out the answer.
This is not fair.
It stops other people from thinking.
I will try to wait for the teacher to ask me.
I will try not to call out the answer.
This will help other people.
This will be fair.
