Mensagem:  How do you say Filar or Colar in English? I'd like also to ask what the English equivalent for Diário de Classe (Caderneta) is

Filar, colar e pescar = to crib ; cheat, as in "His professor somehow caught Smarty Alecky cribbing/cheating on the math exam. He got an F and thrown out onto the pavement."

Caderneta/Diário de classe = students' grade/score book, as in "After the roll call the teacher wrote in a few entries in the students' grade book. He then dismissed the class."

Caderneta de chamada = Roll call book, as in "[Teacher] read out a few names off the roll call book and then plopped it hard on the table. 'Our lesson today,' he told the students, 'will deal mostly with anaytical parsing'."

So says m while crossing all of his twenty fingers.
