Recount-going to Tonga

Image result for tonga beach
In the holidays,me and family went to Tonga to see my grandpa. We had this big container full of clothes because there was a fair happening at vava’u. So we sold clothes to the people in Tonga.

When my Aunty was looking after the shop I went and looked for a food shop because I was very hungry.

Then I finally found a food shop. But right after I buyed my pie I recognise that I was LOST!. I did not know where my Aunty shop was so I asked someone if they knowed where my Aunty shop was. But when the fair was finished I could not find my mum or dad so I started to crying.

But when everyone was gone my mum saw me and then I ran up to her and said “i'm sorry mum” mum said “it’s alright but don’t run away like that okay” okay. After that me and my mum walked all the way home.

Number talks

Word Problems using the number 8:

Panikeke is the island version of a fried donut. The local bakery put 4 Panikekes in each pack that they sell. If they sell 8 packs, how many Panikekes have they sold altogether 4x8=32. 8x4=32

The All Blacks are the New Zealand rugby union team. During their rugby training the All Blacks use 48 cones. If 8 All Black players helped pick up all 48 cones and all 8 of them pick up the same amount of cones, how many cones does each All Black player pick up 2.8x6=48. 6x8=48

Extra for early finishers:

There a 7 days in one week. The Panmure Shopping Centre open up a new barber shop and the shop owner says that only 8 customers visit his barber shop each day of the week (no more than and no less than). How many customers would visit the new barber shop in one week 1. 7x8=56 8x7=56.

Tamaki Primary school have an egg race day and 72 students have signed up for the race. If there are 8 teams and they have the same amount of students in each one, how many students will be in each team 2. 72 divide 8=9.
Other questions:If I can dig 16 holes in 8 hours, how many holes can I dig in 1 hour? 2 holes because 2x1=2

If there are 8 people sitting at a table and each person is served 4 waffles each, how many waffles have been served altogether 32 waffles because 8x4=32 4x8=32
