Skype reading

Today we skpyed into a grade 4 class to read Mortimer Be Quiet by Robert Munch. It was a really interesting thing to be apart of. The kids really seemed to like how we all took part in the book and that havoc was involved as well. It was fun that we did something like this in a highschool English class, because all you usually do is poems and Shakespeare. It would be fun to do something like this again!

Quick write - Olympics

The Winter Olympics are in Sochi this year. I love how the Olympics can bring a country together, espically how the Winter Olympics can bring Canada together (#WeAreWinter). Hockey is a big sport for many countries and now that Russia is out it makes it very interesting because they usually recieve some medal . Hockey is seem as a Canadian sport which makes it a big deal that we have made it this far and hopefully recieve a bronze, silver, or gold at the Olympics this year!http://www.livelingua.com/blog/survival-russian-for-the-sochi-2014-olympics/

Quick write - what colours are you?

I think the color orange represents who I am and what I want my life to be about. The words in orange are things that I value in my life like family and friendships hey make me happy. If you have family and friends in your life I think you're looking at a pretty good life, which is what I want now and in my future. Cantaloupe is another color that I would like be my life. Success is one of the main words in the color which is what I would like to achieve in my life.

Quick write - which door?

I would choose to go though the Hogwarts door. I think it would be so cool to go to the school to see/be apart of all the magic there. I loved the books and the movies so to see it in real life would be amazing. 

Twitter assignment #1

Along for the ride. (156) It's my first time reading Sarah Dessen. I like how it's not overly girly #intro

? - Why is Auden's mom so mean towards Heidi and everything she's involved with? #question

Favourite quote so far "You're supposed to fail sometimes. It's a required part of the human existence." #comment

! - Auden and Eli will get together, but other people may try and interfere with their relationship. #prediction

Has anybody read Along for the ride or any other Sarah Dessen books? What do you think makes her a popular author? #discuss
