Story 91: I Like to Do Pictures
Every day I do work for my teacher.
Some work is writing, some work is pictures.
When I was in the infants I did pictures every day, and took them home to show my mum.
But in junior and senior school we do not have to take pictures home.
All our work goes in our books and we keep it in our tray.
When my mum comes to school she can see my books if she wants to.
I will only do pictures when my teacher asks me.
Then I will put it in my book and keep it at school, in my tray.
