    Zero Lies

    One day I took home a spelling test with zero wrong. When my mom looked at it, she noticed that one of the words was spelled wrong. I was very sad that I had gotten one word wrong and did not want to tell my teacher. But the next morning I told my teacher about the mistake. She said she did not have her glasses on when she corrected the papers. She told the class that I told the truth. Then she asked me to choose something from the prize jar. I am glad that I told the truth.
