II. One day, a little girl came home from school and said to her mother, “Mommy, today in school our teacher punished me for something that I didn’t do.”
The mother said, “That’s terrible! I will have a talk with your teacher about this. By the way, what was it that you didn’t do?”
The little girl answered, “My homework”
III. My grandmother turns 76 this year. Every day, she goes to the square near her house to dance.
But some neighbors don’t like it when she and her friends dance in the square. They think their music is too noisy.
I think dancing in the square is nice. It gives old people a chance to get some exercise. People should be allowed to dance in public places, but they shouldn’t make too much noise. They should also turn down their music a little bit. They can also choose a more suitable period of time to dance.
