Story 77: I Like Some Teachers More Than Others
Every day we do work for different teachers.
Some teachers I like and some I don't.
But we have to work the same for all the teachers.
This is part of our agreement with school.
The teachers try to work with all the pupils in the room.
Some pupils they like and some they don't.
But they try to work the same for all the pupils.
This is part of their agreement with school.
This makes it fair for all the pupils.
I will try to keep to the agreement.
I will try to work with all the teachers just the same, the ones I like and the ones I don't like.
This makes it fair for all the teachers.
