Miss Trigg's Example

Dear diary, 

Today the strangest thing happened whilst I was gazing out the window. My tail has a mind of it's own, as i was looking out the window at the adorable, kind girl fox,  my tail swished on the canvas and painted her! I couldn't believe my eyes! I hope my tail doesn't do this tomorrow, I feel so embarrassed that I painted her. She sure is pretty, she had a golden yellow dress and looked like a daffodil. I felt so content watching her this morning, I could feel my heart beat in my chest it was beating to a funky rhythm...........................

First, write the 4 x tables from 0-40. Start at 0, add 4, write down number you land on, add 4, write the number you land on... until you get to 40!


Once you have completed that, you need to complete these calculations.
