    The teacher needed volunteers

    I am not sure if my sentence sounds natural or grammatical. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    The teacher needed volunteers to help an old lady with her garden. The whole class, without exception, raised their hands and got commended by her for their compassion.

    Re: The teacher needed volunteers

    I'd change "got" to "were".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
