Today I took the reading index test and I think that I did really well. I got a 1235 and that is above 11th grade reading level. Some of the questions were really hard to answer, but overall I think I handled it pretty well. The test was kind of hard for me because on many of the questions, there were big words that I had no idea what they meant, so I guessed on a few of them. Based on my reading today, I think that I could do better at trying to understand things, and not just guessing.
For term 3 I read a book called Scarlet. It was a great book! I loved how the book changed from different points of view every chapter. At the end of every chapter, it left it on a cliff hanger, so you couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. I couldn’t put it down. I liked that the book report was not just an essay that you have to write about your book. I’ve always liked that the teacher makes the book report something clever. I wish that I had read the directions more carefully and paid attention to what I didn’t do correctly on the book report, like not putting a title on the book report and not doing the stars on the rating for the book. I don’t think that I would’ve changed anything in the “perfect world”.
For term 4, I decided to read the third book to Scarlet- Cress. All of the Lunar Chronicles books’ are based off a fairy tale which makes them a fractured fairy tale. Cress is based off of the fairy tale Rapunzel. I didn’t decide to read this book because of the book report, I decided to read it because of the book I previously read-Scarlet.
