    Choosing the Right

    Today my mom gave me a note that said CTR. It helped me remember to choose the right. At lunch my friends and I were playing a game, and I got tagged out. My friend made a big deal about it. I was a little mad, but I did not say anything about it because I knew it would make a big problem.

    Later in class we were making dioramas, and a girl copied my idea. I was really angry, but instead of yelling at her, I said, “Thanks for really liking my idea.” That made me happy.
