Valentines puzzle.

Here is a valentines puzzle where we pair the boys and the girls. Here are the answers.
Ben and Victoria.
Brandon and Jasmine.
Logan and Jessica.
Dylan and Sydney.
I worked these out by the help of Troy.
This is how I worked it out.
I will type it because I can't take I pic of my work.

Working out:

We had to list all the boys names and next to the boys names will be the first letters of the girls names.

Ben      V JE JA S
Brandon   V JE JA S
Logan       V JE JA S
Dylan.     V JE JA S

Then we look on the clues on the pic below.
Dylan did not send a card to Jessica
Benjamin sent a card to either Victoria or Jasmine
Victoria did not receive a card from Logan or Brandon
Neither Logan nor Brandon sent a card to Sydney
Brandon would never send a card to Jessica

We had to use the clues to help us.
Since Dylan did not send a card to Jessica we can cross her of Dylan's list.
Dylan V JE JA S
Since Ben sent a card to either Victoria or Jasmine we can cross out Sydney and Jessica of his list.
Victoria did not receive a card from Logan or Brandon so we can cross Victoria of there list.
Logan V JE JA S
Brandon V JE JA S
Neither Logan nor Brandon sent a card to Sydney. Let's cross her of their list.
Logan V JE JA S
Brandon V JE JA S
Brandon would never send a card to Jessica.
Let's cross her of the list.
Brandon V JE JA S

Dylan V JE JA S
Logan V JE JA S
Brandon V JE JA S

These are our last results. Let's sort them out.
Since all  Dylan is the only one with Sydney not crossed out. So we can cross out Victoria and Jasmine.
Dylan V JE JA S
Now we know that Dylan sent a card to Sydney.
Do the same and then you will get the answer above.
I hope this will be helpful for you. If you have trouble write in the comments and I will help you work it out with a reply. Here is the link if you want to do your own valentines puzzle. Just refresh the page to get more valentines puzzles.


I made a word cloud about Kotahitanga. If you want to know what Kotahitanga is just look at this word cloud. It is a bit fuzzy but I can't do anything about it. Kotahitanga is a Maori word that's means unity and togetherness. I guess it is a term value. Word clouds are something a poster with random words on it. It can also be based on one thing. Click here to make your own word cloud. If you want to make your own word cloud it has to be on a laptop because it doesn't work on a mobile device. Here it mine.

2 Stars and a Wish 2

WALT: evaluate our learning honestly.

$100 challenge

Aye - 31
Chad - 16
This is the hundred word challenge.
Try find spell your name to see the value of your name.
My name is worth $31.
Now I will show you my working out. Once again I have to type it.

Working out

What is the value of your name?
A = $1
Y = $25
E = $5
1 + 25 + 5 = 31

What word is worth $100
A $1
F $6
G $7-
H $8
A $1
I $9
S $19
T $20
A $1
N $14

$1 + $6 +  $7 + $8 + $1 + $9 + $19 + $20 + $1 + $14 = $100

I actually don't know the most expensive country.

What is the least expensive country you can find?
C $3
H $8
A $1
D $4
3+8+1+4= 16
To be honest I actually searched on the internet the shortest country name.

WALT read and respond to text.
I read this article on this website. Click here to see it.
If you read the article I agree to it. We need all children to have a school. Since over 57 million children with no education there lives will not get better in the future. Write in the comments below if you agree or disagree and why.

Poutama-Rama comments

Today on my timetable I had to write a comment on the Poutama Rama blog. My comment is from the buddy challenge. Here it is:
My highlight for buddy challenge day was trying to work together with my buddy. The most challenging thing for me was doing the trust challenges. My buddy wouldn't want to do anything because she was scared. No matter how much we encourage her. Only for the trust challenges. I didn't notice anyone being a role model. Not that there is none. I just didn't see any. I didn't get to notice anybody showing perseverance because I was too busy focusing  on my buddy.
