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. P, I just got and audio book yesterday for the MCBA book Anton and Cecil. Anton likes relaxing and (schedules or lists). Cecil however, likes high seas adventures. The two are cats and brothers. Anton is more prepared than Cecil is. So far I think, Cecil doesn't like to wait or prepare. If, I could talk to one character it would be Anton because while he's resting his brother is sailing. This is what I would say "Anton! Cecil is sailing a ship you got to stop him and keep him away from the seven seas unless you would like to join him! The point is you go to save Cecil!' I'm enjoying this audio book so far. I hope Anton can save Cecil (without getting scared or nervous.) Also, I hope Cecil has good survival skills.

Dear Mrs. P,
I started Wayside school gets a little stranger by: Louis Sachar
If I could talk to one character I would talk to Mr. Pickell because he is wonky he hyponotized a women to get her to stop her from smoking. Also, he made the women slap her husband every time he said potato and eventually the women and her husband stopped eating potatoes. "When ever your husband says the word potato you will slap him across the face"Mr. Pickell said. This is what I would say to Mr. Pickell "Did you really have to do that to a poor, innocent lady?" But, soon Mr. Pickell got found out and got fired (which is good news to me). So far, this book is enjoyable. I hope I continue to enjoy this book.

Sincerely, Molly

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!

Dear Mrs. P, I read one of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica books they are so cool that they are magical girls. My favorite character is Mami Tomoe she has blond hair and a cute outfit. Katie was the one who told me about the book anyway. There's also a tv show about it. I really enjoyed the book. Mami is awesome. She's like a big sister to Madoka. Here is a list of characters:
Madoka Kaname
Mami Tomoe
Houmura Akemi
Sayaka Miki
Kyoko Sakura

hi Mrs. P I've been reading A night divided. It's awesome I think you should read it even thought it's about the Berlin Wall. I'm almost done with the story. I don't know if Gerta and Fritz will make it out to the West. The tunnel they're making is risky because the Stasi and Grenzer officers.

Hi Molly,
Happy New Year!

I'm so glad that I recommended Found to you. I really love the author, Margaret Peterson Haddix's, books. I'm always amazed by the twists and turns that she creates in her stories.

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?

Talk to you soon,
Mrs. P

Dear Mrs. P, I really am enjoying the book you recommended to me called Found. I predict that Jonah's parents are trying to find him because he got a letter saying beware!they're coming back to get you. After I read the first couple chapters I felt like this was a good book. I'm currently on chapter 7. I'm really happy with this book so far. Sincerely,Molly
Dear Mrs. P, Guess what? In the book Found theyr'e going to meet the FBI person to find out about more of Jonah's birth parents, I'm so excited!
I really like this book a lot. I'm glad you recommended this awesome book to me! I feel bad for Chip though he can't come along too. I'm on chapter 9 right now so far. But, if I got those weird letters in real life I would be a little bit scared. Is the FBI person Jonah's father somehow? I just really enjoy this book.
Though this letters are very mysterious. I hope I answer my questions. Sincerely,Molly

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
