Xtra Math

This is my Xtra Math result and I only have 9 wrong, but I still need to work on it.

My Worst Mistake

My Worst Mistake

The worst mistake I have ever made is when my cousin and I cracked the window, and then I got into big trouble from my mum and got grounded from playing with my cousin again. I lie to my mum that it wasn’t me, it was my cousin, but she didn’t believe me.

My mum ask my cousin who cracked the window, my cousin said it was both of us, so I got a trouble again for lying, then I told my cousin to come to my room. When my cousin came in I told him “why did he tell on us for’’. He didn’t said anything so I then kicked him and punch him in the the stomach. He started to cry, then my mum came in and said to me what did I do? I told her nothing, then she ask my cousin what happe. My cousin told her that i punch and kicked him in the stomach, so I got a trouble again for lying and for kicking and punching my cousin on the stomach.

Rich Tasks

Food in my Culture

Food in my Culture

My family and I celebrate birthdays by eating our favorite traditional foods and playing a game of touch as a family. Our favorite traditional foods are called Lu sipi, and Otai.

On our birthdays, we get food and cake because we are celebrating our birthdays and our age. Food is good to eat, because you grow muscles only if you eat healthy food like fruit and vegetables. You could die by eating lots, of lollies and stuff because they are sugary, and you can die. And that’s why my family always eat our traditional food because it’s healthy and important for us Tongan people.

The biggest birthday celebration in my  family, is my grand parents birthday.  On my grandparent's birthday, people bring their own party favors and supplies, such as cake, food items, table coverings, balloons, decorations, and presents.

When we celebrate a birthday the first thing we do, as a family is pray and after that we eat our traditional food. When we finish eating, we play a game as a family and it is fun. The game we always play is touch, that is our favorite game to play as a family.

Lu sipi is our traditional food and its made out of this Tongan traditional plant called Lu.  Sipi means meat in English. Traditionally Tongan people make Lu sipi on someone’s birthday because Lu sipi is our traditional Tongan food, and it very important, for us Tongan people.

Otai is like juice. It is a blend of water, coconut milk, and any fruit such as coconut, watermelon, mango, and pineapple but it is almost always watermelon as it is plentiful in Tonga.

This is how we celebrate birthdays in my family by eating cakes, lollies, and our favorite traditional food. Our traditional food are called Lu sipi, and Otai. After the feast we then play a game of touch as a family.
