Have a good breakfast,sleep early, have a good smile in the morning 

I am going to explain to you what you have to do when you have a important test.

When you have a important test then you have to sleep early. So when you wake up your brain
and you are ready to have a good sleep. 

Have a good breakfast like bix, but not the soggy one. Eat healthy food and. Go for it now 
Be healthy food. So if you sit there eating unhealthy food you will not improve at school.

Jorelle angry birds

Angry birds is a game and it is a lot of fun.         

Potential energy is when you pull back the rubber band. Kinetic energy is when you reales the rubber band and the bird goes flying. Gravity is when you reales the bird and it goes flying and gravity pulls the bird down. Action and reaction means when you close your eyes and you want to have a sleep. Momentum is when you run fast and you can't stop.

Angry bird is a fun game because you get to heat the pigggiesand we learn potential energy and kinetic energy.
