Setting

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The book I’m reading is Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. In my book my main character is Jacob Portman and he explores a broken down house that used to belong to Miss Peregrine. In the house he walks around and looks at how old the house was. This house was Miss Peregrine’s home for all of the really Peculiar Children.

In the house the walls were ripped, there were broken toys on the floor, the couches were dusty, there were vines on the fire place, the chairs was torn up, there was mold on the windows, rickety staircase, in the kitchen was a science experiment gone terribly wrong, evidence of children long gone and the walls were black and furry. In the house it looked like it snowed indoors just because of how dusty and dirty it was.

Jacob Portman has to find out what was happening in there while Miss Peregrine was in charge of what went on in that house. Jacob explored the house alone when it was all broken down and ugly. The stairs were squeaking loudly when he walked up stairs. While Jacobs looking around he finds lots of gross things on the carpet, in the kitchen, on the walls and on the chairs and he has to find out who did it and when it happened. Jacobs resources have told him that there may be a chance Miss Peregrine and the Peculiar children might still be alive after all that has happened and he’s going to find out why and where they are.

Spring Break

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

For spring break I am going to St. George and i am going with my family. My Mom, brother, and my two younger sisters. My dad would be coming with us but he had to stay home for work. Usually we go to St. George in a car so that’s how we are planning on getting there this time too. My grandma and grandpa have a condo down there but since they are on a mission we go and stay there lots. By our condo is a pool and we go swim in that all the time. We also have lots of places we go and hike at and we go and see lots of cool rocks there. Our family goes to St. George a lot. That’s usually where we are if we want to go on a short vacation. For spring break we leave on Sunday and get back on Friday so we are there for pretty much the whole week. I love when we have breaks because we don’t have to worry about school and we get to have fun with friends and family. When we go to St. George we always go to this yummy Mongolian grill place where they cook noodles and meat in a bowl for you and it’s really good.

Declare your book

The book I’m going to be reading is Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. I chose this book because it seemed interesting to read and my mom told me that it would be a good book to read. I think that I’m going to like this book and really enjoy it. It seems super interesting to read to I’m excited to read it.

The main character of my book is named Jacob and he is sixteen years old. This book is mostly read by adults and teens. I don’t think little kids would get it or understand it. It’s more of an older kid kind of book and the main character is 16 like the people who would enjoy it.

This book won The #1 New York Times Best Seller. This book was made into a movie and I really want to see it cause it seems really good. This book is really good and I just started it.

 

Call to Adventure

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Everyday I wake up in the morning and I go to school. I practice piano everyday and play tennis sometimes. I have six people in my family, two sisters, a brother and my parents. Usually after school I either do things with my family or hang out with some friends. I have homework in some classes and after I do that I have some free time.

I love to play tennis. Its so fun to have a sport I really look forward to. I’m not good at it but I have people in my life who teach me how to play and teach me what to do. My parents have played for a while and my grandma plays to so they teach me how to play. I am on a team every summer and it’s super fun. I was on a team last year with my friend during the summer and I loved it. It’s so fun to play a sport that I can be taught by my family and that I can teach later on.

Some tennis teams take try outs so that might hold me back from playing. Some tennis teams you might have a bad couch so that could hold you back from wanting to play. You might not be able to be on the tennis team because of where it is and how much money it costs to be on the team so that could hold you back from playing on that certain team.

My parents are helping me with this adventure. They are teaching me how to play and what to do. They are so supportive about this adventure and I’m happy they are here to support me with this. My grandma is also a big part of this adventure because she has taught me so much about everything.

My personal Quest

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

An experience I had when someone pushed me to do something I didn’t want to do was in PE last year when I didn’t want to run anymore but my friends motivated me to keep running and I got a good time on my mile. I’m happy I listened to them because I wouldn’t have got a good time on my mile if I didn’t. My friends are really supportive and motivating when I don’t want to do something.

Another experience I had when I helped someone through something was when I went to go get soup for someone in my ward. She lost her memory for a day and forgot her family. She got it back and we got her dinner to help her feel better. She is ok now but it was scary to think she was forgetting everyone she knew. I’m happy we had the chance to help her with something and make her feel better. Lots of people have helped me in my life and i’m really thankful for them.

After Christmas review

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

During Christmas break I had lots of fun with my family and friends. I watched the Greatest Showman 3 times. I went to bear lake and while we were there we went swimming in a pool. We also went sledding down a huge hill and made jumps to go off. I love to ski but we didn’t have very much snow this year so we didn’t go yet. We played lots of games and watched lots of movies. For christmas I got a new Iphone 6s. It works really well and it’s a great upgrade from my other phone.

The book I chose for my book report is the Fault in our Stars.

I chose this book because one of my friend’s read it and she said it was a really good book so I decided to read it. I asked my friend what book I should read and she said this one. The author of my book is John Green

My reading level for this book is 6-12 grade Amazon.com

One of my New year goals is to start eating healthier and working out more. I think it would be fun to get in shape and be healthier this year.

Write about the end of the term

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

This term, when I read Anne of Green Gables it took me about a month to finish my book which was 309 pages. I didn’t feel rushed at all till the end when I knew I needed to finish it so I could do my report in time for extra credit. I thought it was a good time limit though and thought that if maybe I did it again I could finish it faster. I could have probably had a better schedule for reading my book and knowing when to read, maybe a time limit and a certain time to read it and everything like that. I’m going to try to read as much as I can next book report so I can finish faster, not have enough time, and do my best. It was a comfortable time limit and a good time to finish my book, especially if I did it more on time and had a calendar for it.

I thought that it was pretty easy to write blog posts, especially if you read on google classroom the instructions about what and how you are supposed to write them. We did a lot of blog posts but I feel like when we wrote them they helped us understand the concept a little better like what is setting, plot, symbol, theme and ect. I thought that it was a little hard sometimes to write it in the day it had to be due but if you stayed on task we definitely had enough time to finish if we worked hard and did what we were told to do.

I liked the project I picked because I like to draw and be creative with things like that and the movie poster gave me freedom to do what I love. I really like art and colors and I also thought it would be cool for my book and would be really fun. I really liked my book report and really thought that it was fun. I don’t think I would change very much about it because I already liked it. Maybe I would change a little bit of my picture and added things but other than that I really thought that it was good and that my book was good.

Symbols and Themes

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

In my book, my main character is named Anne. One of the important items in the story is Anne’s clothes. Anne’s clothes symbolize her life and what kind of things have happened, they show that she is not very wealthy and does not have very many changes of clothes. I think her clothes are one of the most important symbols in the book because it shows you how she lived and how she was treated and things that happened to her when she was an orphan.

On my book cover, It shows Anne sitting in a dark room with a suitcase, hat, her dirty clothes and a blank face. She almost looks completely alone and afraid which was how her life was until Matthew and Marilla decided to adopt her. It looks like she is scared  and doesn’t know what to do. I think that they were marketing the book to women about 20-30 or girls about 10-12 years in age. I don’t think I would change the cover of the book because it definitely shows what you need to get out of the book. Anne is an orphan and in the picture for the cover it gives you that hint.

I would have to say the theme of my book is a girl who is and orphan and she gets adopted by a nice family who had the heart to keep her even when she is not what they were looking for. The book is basically about a couple, Matthew and Marilla, who live in Green Gables and want to adopt a boy but when Matthew get to the train station the only person left there was a girl. Matthew tries to figure the situation out but Anne finds out that they never wanted her in the first place so she doesn’t want to stay but when they tell her about how they decided that she could stay and they wanted to keep her she was so excited. The story is about how she gets adopted and how she goes on adventures and with her new friends and with her new story. She learns so many things and meets so many people, Green Gables would never be the same without her.

Parent Teacher

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Dear Mom and Dad, During the twenty minutes of in-class silent reading time, I read Anne of Green Gables. Out of those silent twenty minutes, I read the whole entire time. In class I usually read about ten pages. To finish my book in time I need to read fifteen pages a day. I think I can finish it in time for my book report and be able to have it turned in on time. If I read in class and take it home every single night I can definitely finish it in time. It will be a little bit of a challenge to remember to read every night but I think I can do it.

During english in B4 I am often helpful to my friends and the people sitting next to me. I am on task the whole time during class and understand that the teacher needs to teach me important things. I am willing to take risks for my education and learning. I don’t get distracted and I am always doing my assignments. I do my work and try to turn it in on time all the time. I will try to have all A’s all the time but when I don’t I try to get them in most classes and am trying to get my other grades up as fast as I can. I am constantly making friends and having fun with new people but when it is time to work I do.

I do the best I can to get good grades and to have my teachers grade my work fast. I have most blues and if I don’t it is a green. I will try to get those to blues and when I have a red I will get it up as quick as I can. I will talk to my teachers when I’m behind on something and finish the assignments as quick as I can. Hopefully I will be able to hurry and finish everything on time so I don’t have a problem with trying to catch up. I try super hard to stay on task with whatever task and/or and assignment I was given to finish. I’m doing as good as I can be doing right now and will keep trying to do everything I can to keep up and not fail in any of my classes on A and B days.

Plot

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

In my book I’m reading for this book report Anne is a little girl who wants to learn new things each day and who wants to be nice and a good girl. She learns how to be nice, kind, loving, friendly, smart, she learns how to say her prayers, read, cook, make friends, and have a happy attitude. She is super sweet and she cares what you have to say. The first conflict is that when people travel important news by people the news doesn’t come out the same way you would have said. Matthew and Marilla traveled the news that they wanted a little orphan boy through people and the news came out wrong and they thought that they wanted a girl.

The second beginning conflict is Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert want a little boy to help them do jobs and to help in the yard and be a hard worker. When Matthew gets to the train station he finds a little girl waiting for him. He didn’t know she was waiting for him because they were expecting a boy. He talks to some people and they straighten out that the lady at the orphanage dropped her off for them. The conflict here is that Matthew doesn’t want to tell her he doesn’t want her so he doesn’t and has to take her home. When Marilla sees her she is surprised and doesn’t know what to do. They decided they would keep her for a day and then take her back.

The next conflict is Anne hears that they did not want her and she doesn’t want them to be unhappy with what they got. Matthew and Marilla decide that they will give her a couple days to prove that they will want to keep her and that she can be a good girl for them. She has to learn how to work hard and be a good and nice girl to them and everyone around her. In the orphanage Anne wasn’t taught these things and so she has to learn how to do them and how to obey. When things happen to Anne she doesn’t know how to act about them and how to handle them so she handles them the only way she knows how to. Throughout the book Anne needs to know how to act and how to behave she learns kindness and charity and how to handle things that have never happened to her before. The basic story line is Anne learns how to go through things with new family, friends, a home and with a new life.
