What your partner   gives you that's on you plate. Your partner is not allowed to look everybody that i was vsing cheated even my partner cheated anyway that’s about it oh one more thing i think you have to get some cloves to wear that’s allowed to get duty.

There are four rounds i was in the first round My friend grabbed the weet bix and feed it to me and i ate it. My friend next to me had cream all over his face because his partner put the plate into his face. The cream tasted watery and groes i was going to vomit in my mouth. My partner was going to vomit as well he smelt something groes and nearly vomited . Then i was eating the apple and i ate most of it and then my partner dropped it. i picked it up and wiped it on my shirt.

My favorite part was when i had to feed my partner and i was feeding him the weet bix. But he did not like it and i was going to go give him a apple. It had cream all over the apple i was giving him it and dropped it and the cream on the apple went all over my school uniform pants.  I was a little mad then she said 3.2.1 over me and my partner went to the other side of the class and got tissues.

Grass to glass

Walt: Add detail to the end of sentences.

Cows eat 70 kilograms of grass a day,  they can have silage instead of grass when it is winter. They eat silage so that they not hungry and it can also make them healthy.

Cows have four stomachs, to help them digest their food.They can digest the grass and they turn the grass into milk. They have four tummies so that it can help them digest the grass into milk.    

Milking happens twice a day, in the morning and in the afternoon. Because if the farmer s to lazy then the cow will start mooing and that should wake him up. But if it dose not then the cow get sick.

Problem One
Ivan delivers newspapers. Every night he has 192 to deliver but only managed to get 34 done. How many newspapers does he have left to deliver?   

34 + something = 192
i think its 158 because 34+something = 192 and then i did
100+58=158 and then i did 158 + 34 = 192.

34+something= 192

Every Monday for the last time  seven weeks my math class have been basketball. It was in the hall. This term the whole school gets to play basketball. I sort of suck at shooting. I love dribbling because it's so easy and i like passing too it’s so easy.I enjoy shooting because its fun.
When I shoot I get excited for the ball
to get in but when it goes out or miss I won’t be happy or excited.  While I  was running I felt something wet and it was my sweat. my favorite part of basketball is when we this game and they call out a number and then they have to run and chac the wall and then it turns into basketball you get to shoot

1/3 of 78 = 26  so 2/3 of 78 dose = 52

and 1/4 of 232 =58 because 58 + 58 + 58 + 58 = 232
