Do you think its better to work on a project with someone or by yourself?

I like working alone, cause I don't have someone taking control over it! I'm doing a project for science and language arts, and I'm glad I'm working on it alone!!!

I like working on it with someone. Because if I don't understand anything my partner might understand it and explain it to me (I was always scared to talk to my teachers, when I was younger)

I prefer working alone because when you work with someone, like a friend, you can get distracted. but it is good to work with someone too because you can create ideas

I prefer working alone, however when it's someone who will actually work I don't mind being with a partner :)

Better alone for any school work. Then you learn it all and don't have to worry if they'll do their part.

alone for me.when I was in 3rd grade,nobody wanted to be partnered with me because nobody knew me that well.well,except one girl.Her name was Julia,and she was definitely the adventurous type.she kept trying to get to know me,and I kept fighting it, until we were out on the playground,and I was drawing with some chalk.she came over to me,said hi,then she asked what I was doing,I told her nothing much,while trying to hide what I was drawing.She peeked over my shoulder, and saw it.obviously she liked it.then she called a couple more of our classmates over, she told them to look at it.next thing I know, my whole class was watching me finish it. the rest is in the first comment, it's character limit problems again.

one of them, who had teased me before about my clothes,he went by the nickname of Skip, and he said to me "you know, that's really good.do you like drawing?? you're so alone most times, we don't know that much about you." I told him "yeah, I like drawing. " then Julia saw my hand, she was looking at my nails, which were painted with a design of some sort, flowers. she grabbed my hand, and then said " how the heck did you do this??? did your mom help you, or did you do it yourself??" I told her "I did it myself, I love doing my own nails." The teacher had told us before we went out that we had a project to partner up for, the teacher was partnering us off, and I had seen Skip talking to the teacher when I got in the room, we had all gone to the bathroom in pairs, Julia paired off we me, but surprisingly enough when he got put with me for the project he had a huge grin on his face. I remembered he was known as the class clown, so I asked him "ok, what's going on??" he said "go ask the teacher!!" I went and asked her "can you please tell me what's going on?? Skip said to come ask you, he seems really happy about being put with me. Usually nobody's happy about it, what's going on??" she told me simply "Skip asked to be put with you, why?? are you two having problems already??" and I'm like "No, we're fine. I'm just trying to figure out why he's actually happy about being put with me, why he actually asked you to put him with me." I went back to him, and said "Why did you ask her to put you and me together??" he said "after I saw that drawing you did, I thought maybe, first of all I should apologize for teasing you last week. I'm sorry I teased you like that. Second, I thought maybe you might like to have a friend in the class, you're always off by yourself doing something, but it might be good if somebody knew a bit about you. Maybe then, when somebody gets put with you for a project they won't be upset about it, they might actually be happy about it. And 3rd, I thought I might ask if we could help each other wi

carry off, it cut me off again: with the classwork maybe. I suck at the language arts, and no offense, but you suck at math ande science, Julia told me, she had been close by when you got the last few tests back, and she saw that you had a low grade. I'm good at math and science, and Julia also told me you always get A's for the spelling tests and all that, the lowest you've ever gotten was a B- so I thought maybe I could help you with the math and you could help me with the language arts??" I said " gee, looks like you know more about me than you think. I bet you could guess my favorite color if you tried. Thank you for the apology, I forgive you. And as to helping each other with the work, you're right, I suck at math and science, I love the language arts though. My writing sucks, the teacher goes too fast. she's trying to keep up with the middle group, but it's not just me complaining about her speed, it's most of the class. I'm ok at reading comprehension, not the best but ok. And I think the lowest spelling test grade I got was a B minus. I think let's give it a whirl and try to help each other." We arranged to work in the cafeteria during lunchtime, and we asked the teacher if we could study together during silent reading, she said we could sit in the hall outside the classroom, and we could study there together during silent reading. She and the LA teacher worked it so during class time Skip and I would be in desks next to each other, they only separated us during tests. We both did great on tests, he was a hard worker. After each study session, we'd set aside about 5 minutes to joke, he told some funny ones for sure. I was usually laughing hard by the time my mom got there, he took his bike to and from school since he lived close, about 20 minutes each way to his house. I lived farther than that, so my dad took me each morning and my mom picked me up most days. anyway, we became good friends, and he and I usually went over to the grassy areas during recess to tumble. I taught him how to nail a good ca

cartwheel, and he showed me some stunts he knew. Then we wrestled in the grass after that, and got to know each other better. The teacher saw big improvements from me when I was put with Skip on the projects, so she put me with him for those most times.
