Mrs. Greene’s third grade classroom is a fun place to be! We use computers a lot in class.
Yesterday I learned about being nice online, and being a good digital citizen. I was confused with that word at first. Then I learned what it meant.
Today in school, Mrs. Greene told us she was giving us homework. We were not happy! Then she said it would be a group project using computers. We all got excited. We love using the computers!
Later, when I got home, I went onto the computer. I went onto my groups page and was surprised.
The boys and girls in my group were talking silly and not using anything Mrs. Greene taught us or talking about the project.
I typed in my ideas, like we learned. Everyone made fun of me. I ran to my mom, really upset. I was crying.
Everyone liked my ideas, and started to use their manners . We finished the project early. I was happy!
