Dear New member of Room 7,

I am so excited to be sharing Silverwing with you this year as a read aloud. This is definitely one of my all time favorite books, which is probably why I can’t imagine starting a school year without sharing it with my class. *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. What do you think of Silverwing so far?

Your friend in reading,

Ms. Sellers



Dear ,

When writing a literary letter wiki response-
1. you must have at least one paragraph
2. that paragraph must be about ONE book only
3. you must use at least one sentence lead (and I would suggest more than one) and you
must show me where that lead is by boldfacing, underlining, or changing the color of it.

Here is a good example paragraph that I wrote about our read aloud. Use it to help you plan your future responses to me.

We're about half way down with The Other Side of the Island and we've reached an interesting point in the story. Honor has decided that she wants to belong, that she has to belong. So much so, that she is ready to drop her name, the one chosen by her parents, and take on a "true" name- one where the "H" at the beginning is clearly heard. This seems to be a great book to practice our inferring or "reading between the lines" skills. *I predict that Honor's parents are going to be taken and that she and Quintillian will become orphans. I think that because Helix's parents were taken, and Honor's parents continue to break the rules and stay out at night when they are not supposed. *I would be interested in reading another book by this author and seeing whether she writes any other futuristic novels or whether she will choose to write a totally different kind of genre.

This is not my letter- these are just my notes
