I like math
My favorite classes outside of the classroom are PE and lunch, and inside the classroom it’s math. In PE I get to play football and basketball with my friends and in lunch I get to eat a lot. I like math because I get to use different kinds of strategies to help me solve different kinds of problems.
I also like playing outside. I usually go to my friend’s house and we usually play with other friends that go to this school. We play tag and stuff, and we ride around on scooters and bikes most of the time.
When I grow up I either want to be a barber or a basketball player. A barber because I can cut my own hair. I’m growing an Afro.
Next year you’ll be a fifth-grader and the leader of the school. What would be your advice to first-graders?
I would just say to focus if there are any distractions and to listen carefully because the teacher could be talking about a different strategy to another kid and you could hear what they are saying and you could come up with another strategy.
