"I wrote a kind letter to my friends"
"I held the door open"
"I emptied the dishwasher"
"I set the dinner table"
"I cleared away the table after dinner"
"I helped my sister"
"I cooked the dinner for my family"
"I sorted bibs at Netball"
"I cooked the dinner"
"I set the dinner table"
"I tidied up my clothes"
"I brought granny's washing in from the line"
"I helped my sister with her buttons"
"I cleaned the kitchen"
"I said good morning to my teacher and friends"
