Nobody Will Steal My Things
Everyone in my class has a pencil case.
We keep our most important things in it, such as pencil, crayons, rubber, ruler.
We all have the same equipment, but they don't all look the same.
Everybody knows which is theirs and which is mine.
Nobody needs to take my things, but sometimes we may share them.
The school rule says that we don't take things without the owner's permission.
This means we can trust each other not to steal.
So it is OK to leave my pencil case on my desk or in my tray.
I will trust my friends not to take my things.
