List the values for:
Lime candy
Fish Candy
Swirly Pop
Jelly Beans.

Something different into the bargain today
I'm going to leave this riddle all week, until someone solves it. I may offer clues, if posters are struggling. It is quite difficult and you need to really think outside of the box!

My house broken into,
I was taken by force
and sold for money
without any remorse.

I was purchased and chained
with others like me
and our owner now exposes us
for all to see.

Yet no law was broken,
no complaint was filed,
for I am neither man,
woman, nor child.

What am I?

Ooh Miss- I do lyk a widdle of a mournin 😃. I’ll get mi thinkin cap 🧢 on wyle I’m widdlin....

Please post the riddle answer on here, so that others will know what to eliminate. Otherwise I will get bogged down in replying to individual posters.

However, maths answers need a PM.
Thanks class, good luck for today.

Now girls- if you promise me you will not mention the word "certificate" at all this week in any shape or form, at lunchtime I will buy each of you either a cold drink or ice cream.

Yesterday got out of hand but I am keeping a beady eye on you.

I am beginning to agree with MissDoll- I also find you challenging to teach. My teaching was confined to 350 medical students for a couple of days each year and adults a couple of times a month as part of my normal duties. Admittedly the latter only came because they could have a rest so that could also be difficult.

Be good!

At first i thought it was a dog taken for fighting or breeding, then realised that is against the law. So after re reading decided like other it must be a Pearl.

Callistemon Tue 02-Jun-20 10:08:33

Reception class would be easier, MissCharleygirl.
