Write your paragraph in the box below.

In some ways, I have a similar life to Maarit, but in some ways, I don’t.
Like Maarit, I wake up in the morning eat breakfast, then get ready for the
day. Unlike her, I don’t have to feed chickens or do anything else. I also
don’t walk to school like her, but I do have to study many subjects. Both of
our favorite subjects are math. When Maarit gets home from school she still
has to do things such as homework, but I don’t have to do anything except
for eat dinner and go to bed.
