HI Katie-

I see that you wrote some question marks in your book log above. Let me show in class sometime what I want you to do in that! I see that you've been reading two of my favorite books.

Molly Moon is a great book, and it was an MCBA probably 10 years ago. I think I may have first read the book because it had a pug on the cover! But then I liked the book for the interesting, complicated fantasy story. Are you still reading this too? There were parts of this plot that made my head hurt. I don't want to give too much away. Are you still reading this, because I think you might really like this whole series?

Interesting that you would pick up a different book about another girl who is an orphan. Great Gilly Hopkins is a very famous book by a famous author, Katherine Patterson. I'm curious to see what you think about Gilly as a character? Do you think she is angry? mean? ;Do you think she has a right to feel that way?
Do you think she will ever find a family to love her?

Remind me to tell you another story about Gilly in person!

Your friend,
Mrs. P

hi mrs p,

i am currently still reading the great gilly hopkins and it's getting better. one part in the book was interesting when gilly took the boys ball and she ran around the playground, with the boys chasing her. she then proceeds to knock one of them to the ground, and they get injured and the principal gets involved. the next day, gilly finds out the story is all over the school.

i have nothing else to write so im just writing this sentence.

Hi Mrs. P

I am currently reading a book called "The Great Gilly Hopkins" I'm only on Chapter 3 right now, but it's good. The main character Gilly is a foster child, and has been to three homes in less than a year. But this time, she is in a home where the mom is super religious and a 7 year old, who Gilly calls "mentally r*tarded." She is somewhat rude to her new family members. Overall, this book is good so far. Even though it has some swears, it doesn't matter to me. This book somewhat reminds me of another book called "Sarah Simpson's Rules for Living". Both of the main characters are independent, and have hatred for their family members.

Hi Mrs.P,

I am currently reading a book called Molly Moon's Incredible Book of Hypnotism. I am currently on chapter 1 and I think it's good so far. The main character Molly, often likes to use her imagination to get away from reality. I think she does this because her imagination is actually better than her real life, in her opinion, I wonder what will happen in the 2nd chapter.

hi mrs p,

i'm doing good and i think i will do wiki 2 times instead of raz because all of the books on there are too easy.

i also finished guinea dog and even though i didn't like it it was okay for a guided reading book.

i'm still reading haddix and it's getting interesting so far. when i'm done reading the first book i want to read

the other books,

have a good day,

Happy New Year!

Ok, time to get down to business! We really need to start making this wiki work for us.

You have two choices-

Each week you must log on to this wiki and write a response about what you are reading.

You may also choose to do this one week, and the second week log into your RAZ account and read and complete a meaningful activity.

At the end of two weeks, I will check to see if you have done TWO wiki responses or ONE response and ONE RAZ log in. If you don't complete these, you will get an oops note.

Here is a sample about our current read aloud

I am glad to finally be starting our new read aloud "Jack: The True Story of Jack and the Beanstalk". I will admit that I wasn't sure if this was one of the MCBAs that I really wanted to read. But so far, I'm kind of digging it! Based on what we've read so far, I feel kind of bad for the main character Jack. The author shows us many places where Jack's mom shows/says that she doesn't like Jack. This makes me as the reader sympathize with Jack. I think everyone's mom should love them no matter what. We also start to see and here that Jack is a bit of troublemaker, Maybe his mom finds him exhausting and frustrating! But in the part that she just finished, the mom actually defending him when he was accused of stealing the cabbages. I wonder if Jack's mom will feel differently by the end of the story (especially if he becomes a giant defeating hero)

What have you been reading?

Dear Room 7,

I’m very excited to hear all your thoughts about what you’re reading on your individual wiki pages. I’ve really enjoyed all your enthusiasm about Silverwing. Even though this is my twelfth time reading it, I still get really excited about sharing it every year. *The genre of this book is definitely fantasy since I don’t believe that bats and owls have wars or detailed adventures together. I also consider this to be a genre of my own invention- called Animal Adventure. I love the character Shade; he’s one of my all-time favorites. *If I could talk to Shade, I would ask him if he thinks it was worth it to break the law and see the sun, especially after what happens to his colony as a result.

Your friend in reading,

Mrs. Palmieri J

Dear Mrs.
Hi! I haven't written on the wiki in almost a month! I am starting a book right now called "Sarah Simpson's Rules For Living" by Rebecca Rupp. I just started it today. The book is all about Sarah Simpson, a red haired 12 year old girl who likes to keep lists about certain people in her journal. Her dad is divorced and now lives in Los Angeles with his new wife named Kim. Sarah made this list about Kim: THINGS I DO NOT LIKE ABOUT KIM:
  • She wears a Wonderbra.
  • She has long, blond hair that she's always flipping around to make others notice she has blonde hair.
  • She is boring to talk to.
  • She giggles through her nose.
To make things worse, her mom has a new boyfriend named Jonah. Sarah doesn't like Jonah, so she made this list about him: THINGS I DO NOT LIKE ABOUT JONAH
  • He always sits in the cat's chair.
  • He is not as good looking as my father, he's going bald on the top, and has a potbelly.
  • He drives a horrible old blue van that has these bumper stickers like: "SAVE THE WHALES" and "VISUALIZE WHIRLED PEAS".
  • He sings stupid songs.
He has a beard.
Sarah isn't too happy about her life, but she does like making lists. Little does she know, she'll have to deal with the school play, and relationships. Sarah needs to realize that every family is different and they come in all shapes and sizes. But,she has important rules for living:
1. Don't lie.
2. Don't trust anybody but cats.
3. Don't expect happy endings.
4. Drink skim milk.
5. Avoid blondes.
I bet that this is going to be a very good book, and she'll go through little problems along the way. Talk to you soon!
From, Katie

Dear Mrs. P,
Hi, how are doing? I'm doing fine. I'm finishing Flying Solo right now. I think that Mr. Fab made the kids pass around the rock is that they can share eachother's feelings. If they're feeling sad, angry, depressed, etc. they could pass around the rock and show and tell others how they feel. I predict it can also be for remembering others that have died, (Like Tommy) are moving away, being transferred to another class, got expelled and everyone thought, "He\she was a nice person. I'll miss them." etc. It would give others (that are moving, being transferred, etc.) one last chance to talk to their classmates and see how they feel. Christopher REALLY gets on my nerves. If I was the teacher in the classroom and I saw him dancing on the table, I would give him 100 detention slips for almost breaking the table and he could fall of and hurt himself. Rachel is still my favorite character. I wonder if she'll speak to her classmates about how she feels about Tommy Feathers? I think that Tommy liked Rachel and he wanted to do special things for her to get her attention. When he was giving out the pie to his class, he gave Rachel the biggest slice and even gave Rachel her own pie with the golden raspberries in it which hints that's he was giving special attention to Rachel. If he was still alive, I think his pies would taste even better. Do you think since Tommy died in his sleep do you think he has a breathing disorder? I think he had trouble breathing in his sleep. Do you think Tommy wrote a letter to Rachel (before he died) saying he thought she was special? If he did, where would you think he'd put it? It would be interesting. Since there is no pictures in the book, what do you think all of the characters look like? I think Rachel would look like this: large.jpgI personally think for some reason that Tommy would have dirty blond hair and is a little plump but not too fat.

Talk to you soon, Katie

Dear Team 7,

Good Job getting started doing wiki and RAZ.

Remember on your wiki-

  1. Please write like its a letter- Date, Greeting, Body, Closing, Signature

  2. Make sure to write about one book only (unless you are writing multiple paragraphs

  3. YOU MUST use sentence leads from the pink sheet in your response. These will help me see your thinking about what you are reading.

Use your time wisely during Reading block and you'll be able to get these done at school!

Happy New Year Katie!

Have you been enjoying our read aloud of Sophia's War? *I've noticed that the author Avi gave us a lot of background information in Part 1 of the book so that we would better understand this big adventure that Sophia is going to undertake in Part 2. Can't believe we are more then halfway done with it! Sophia has entered dangerous territory as she is now working at the Kennedy House, which is the headquarters for the British. It's kind of crazy that she is actually cleaning Major Andre's office and reading his secret papers! Who do you think the mysterious Mr. Moore is and what does it have to do with West Point?

Who is your favorite character in Flying Solo?

Talk to you soon,
Mrs. P

Hi Mrs, P. Happy new year!tumblr_nl0xgcF44L1tlou7no1_500.gif I've been enjoying Sophia's War. I wonder if she will start a war of her own because it's called Sophia's War? I think Mr. Moore is so mysterious that he may be apart of the American side because the British are fighting against the Americans and Mr. Moore might not anyone to know he's part of the Americans. My favorite character in Flying Solo is Rachel because I feel bad for her. Would you feel bad if a classmate did special things for you and then died in his sleep? I know I would. Maybe the whole class would. tumblr_njn01dEjG71qlr8pbo6_500.gif I really like reading the Puella Magi Madoka Magica books\mangas. I've already read all of the 3 books and I already finished the TV show with only 12 episodes, now I'm on the 3 movies here: Movie 1: Movie 2: Movie 3: (Rebellion) I have all 3 on my Netflix I'm going to watch all of them soon. :) Have a good day. :-)

Dear Mrs. P,

Thank you for answer to my letter! I really enjoy typing my story in class with Emily. I had alot of fun typing Bob's Fear, with some help from my friends. (and you) tumblr_m81gff2L0G1r6jyhq.gifI typed a 2nd story named "High School Fears" but I'm not finished with it yet. I probably won't finish it because I'm typing my 3rd story right now. I spend alot of time on the computer at home and at school on typing stories. For my 3rd story, it's called "Puella Magi Madoka Magica". I also added this picture to my story:
The picture for my story.

I really hope to do more computer type things in class. I also think we should read books online sometimes too. On Sunday, December 4th, I bought this book at Marshalls:
Book I got:
It's not a very long book but it was worth buying. I've looked at the wiki and there were "discussions" about the books you were reading before to your class. Students would ask a question or make a prediction about the book. I think we should do one on Sophia's War. It would be interesting to see what other people think or predict! I think we should make discussions about other stuff besides reading like what's going on in our writing story, stuff about our class, etc. tumblr_lk3602sPAa1qg1dfwo1_500.gif Also, when are we going to vote for the movie when we spun the wheel? I'm looking forward to vote. (I hope the Peanuts Movie wins don't tell anyone :) a158a702dc16e192edcffe102baa7609.gif) I watched the Peanuts Movie on Sunday night and my favorite part was Sally riding Snoopy (as a horse) in the talent show while trying to catch Charlie Brown (in the cow costume). 88eee9439f0c31140c47bd982b70b6c8.gif I was thinking we could also bring a special snack to watch one of the movies. I'd also like to watch our Animoto videos in class if we don't have time to watch all of them in library. Well, I hope you enjoyed my suggestions and my letter. Have a nice day! :) :)

Hi Katie-

Thanks so much for your VERY interactive response!

I can see that you really love Anime/Manga books and also graphic novels. You, and some of the other studetns in our class, have inspired me to expand our library to include some of these kinds of books.

Dear Mrs.P, (A.K.A. Coach) I've been reading this book right now at home: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Volume 1. The book is about Madoka Kaname, an oridnary 8th girl, and her best friend is Sayaka Miki. One night, Madoka has this nightmare about this strange girl named Homura Akemi, a magical girl who fights witches. The next day, she comes to Madoka's class as a transfer student. After school that same day, Madoka and Sayaka go to the mall after school where they meet a magical cat like creature named Kyubey who can grant wishes. At that same moment, they meet a magical girl named Mami Tomoe, who became a magical girl because of Kyubey. Kyubey tells Madoka and Sayaka they can become magical girls if they ask for one wish. However, being a magical girl can be dangerous and deadly. Will Madoka make the right decison? Find out in: Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Volume 1. My favorite character is Madoka and if I could ask her a question, it would be: "What would your wish be to become a magical girl?" I'm in the middle of this book right now and it's really good! There is also a show of it too! The show is the same as the book but it only has 12 episodes. I'm on episode 7 right now. Here's the link to the show: I hope you enjoy the book and the show! The link to the book is on Amazon. I really enjoy reading anime books! (A.K.A Mangas) I hope we can get some in our Room 7 Snoopy library! Please respond! I'd love for you to respond. P.S: Can we also talk about other things like our stories, weekends, our class, etc.? I enjoy writing to you alot. Have a nice day! :) :) :)

Dear Room 7 student,

I am glad that I am reading Sophia's War__ out loud to you. I enjoyed reading it this summer and think it is making a great read aloud, It is a challenging book, with many old fashioned and difficult words so I think this may have been challenging for many of you to read on your own.

*The author Avi got me really interested when he ended Part One of the book with Sophia ready to seek revenge for the death of her brother William. I have been giving you some hints about what might happen. I will tell you that working at the print shop is key to what Sophia will do next and how she will get even with John Andre, whom she blames for not helping her brother.**If I could talk to Sophia, I would ask her if she is afraid to go after Andre.

What do think will happen next?

Talk to you soon,
Mrs. P:)

Dear Room 7 member-

You and write will write back and forth to each other about what we have been reading.
I will ask you questions that you can answer, and you can ask me questions too.

Make sure to always write about ONE book and to use SENTENCE LEADS to help you with
your thinking.

Your friend,
Mrs. P
