Story 80: Why Do I Do Different Work from Other People?
Every day I do work for my teacher.
Everyone does the same work each week.
Sometimes I work by myself and sometimes with my assistant.
My assistant is called ………………‥
Sometimes I do different work by myself.
This might be in the shared area outside the classroom.
It is OK to do different work.
At the end of the week we have all done the same work, but not all at the same time.
If my teacher asks me to work outside, I will do that.
If she wants me to do different work, I will do that.
I will try not to make a fuss.
