Story 90: My Teacher Asks Lots of Questions
My teacher asks lots of questions.
She does this to make us think.
We put our hand up when we want to answer.
She asks one person for the answer.
Everyone listens to the answer.
When we listen to the question and the answer, we learn a bit more about our work.
Sometimes I put my hand up to answer.
Sometimes she asks me to give my answer.
Then I forget to listen to the other questions.
If I stop listening, I won't learn as much as the other children.
I will try to listen to all the questions and all the answers.
I will look at the person who is giving an answer.
Then I will learn more.
