Correct the Errors

 

The story below has many indention and quotation errors. Rewrite the essay and correct the errors. (Answers in the back of the book.)

 

 

Yesterday I was late to class. The teacher asked me why I was late.

“Brian, why are you late to class”?

“I’m sorry, Miss Johnson, I said. I woke up late.”

“Well don’t let it happen again!” she yelled.

The next day, Miss Johnson was five minutes late to class.

I asked her, “why are you late, Miss Johnson?”

She said “I had a flat tire.”

“Well don’t let it happen again!” I yelled.

She didn’t think that was funny. I had to stay after school every day for the next month.
