Andy and Jerry had some Halloween candy that they wanted to share with their class. Andy had 47 pieces, and Jerry had 54 pieces. When they arrived at school, the teacher gave them some more candy, and they shared it equally with the class. If there are 10 students in addition to Jerry and Andy, and each student received 10 pieces, how much candy did the teacher give them? Write some equations to show how you found the answer.
Andy's candy (47) plus Jerry's (54) equals 101 pieces. 47 + 54 = 101 We don't know the amount of candy the teacher gave, so we'll call it C. We know there are 12 students (Andy and Jerry plus 10) and that each of them received 10 pieces. So... 101 + C = 12 x 10 That means that 101 + C =120 120 - 101 = 19 The teacher gave them 19 extra pieces.

"What is the path to peace?" If you were to ask Mahatma Gandhi and Jesus Christ this question, what do you think their answers would be? Use quotes to support your response.
Gandhi said, "There is no 'way to peace,' there is only peace." He would probably say that peace lies within us and that it is a choice we make regardless of circumstances. Jesus said this in John 16:33, "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." He would probably say that belief in him and reading his Word is the path to peace, because peace comes from him.

I will reel in a big fish on my fishing trip! The candle smelled like real chocolate. Can you hear the train's whistle? Oh, here you are! She likes to swim in the creek. The creak from the door sounded spooky! Is the steel pan easy to clean? I watched him steal home base!
