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,

Dear Mrs. Palmieri,

I have been reading a book called Bartimaeus by Jonathan Stroud and it has been most interesting. I got sucked in the minute the second chapter went through my ear. After reading the first chapter I thought it was boring but it got much better. My mom is reading it aloud. We usually do that every night. I think it still counts as reading though.

I disliked the part when (SPOILER ALERT!!!!) a few of the main characters died but it was good action. The genre of this book is fantasy because there are gin and different monsters like afreets. That is a real thing in the book I did not spell it wrong. a boy named Nathaniel is an ordinary boy until Arthur Underwood who is a magician also makes Nathaniel one. I am mad at the author because he made a few characters die that were important to Nathaniel. Mr. Stroud the author made some parts funny that I don't think are actually supposed to be funny.

"Mr. Underwood looked furious when Nathaniel embarrassed him." this was a quote from the book. The author used good adjectives when needed. I hope you enjoyed my letter. Peace out!

Your amazing, star pupil, Quinn

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. Palmieri,

How are you? I hope you didn't have to much trouble with Liam for pre-K. Anyway, I've been reading a book called "Mr. Lemoncello's Library Olympics." It is by Chris Grabentein. This is a sequel to a book you have in your library called "Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library." I really enjoyed it! I didn't think it had many slow parts at all. There were so many good characters with completely different personalities. When they all had to work together they worked out and won their contest in the first book. I think this would be a good read-aloud.

I think you personally would like it to. You like books, and you have also have an interesting personality just like Mr. Lemoncello. I hope if you read it you like it as much as I do.

Yours truly, Quinn Synnott.

Hi Quinn,
Happy New Year!

I read The Fourteenth Goldfish too and agree with you that some parts were slow, and a little bit cooky. I did like how the mother and grandfather kind of had to reverse roles. The grandfather sounded like he always disapproved of what the mother had chosen to do in life, so it was funny to see the mom have to boss him around. Although bizarre, I think I liked the message in the end- kind of live for the moment.

I actually like many of the other books by this same author- Jennifer Holm. Her other books are different. You would probably really like her other series about a secret agent cat. I will put the names up in your suggestion log and tell you more about it later.

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. Palmieri

I have been reading (and finished) a book called "The Fourteenth Goldfish." It is an MCBA. I enjoyed many
parts, for example when Melvin (the main character Ellie's uncle) transformed himself into a teenager. Melvin was trying to break into his lab to get the jellyfish that made him a teen.

My only problem with this book was that there were a few very S....L.....O.....W parts where they talked about feelings. Overall it was a good book. The genre was unrealistic fiction. (I'm not sure that's a genre though.)

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
