1) Because of the work you did with your book club project group, what is the most important thing you learned about your book? Explain your answer.

2) What is the most important thing you learned about working in a team?

3) Whatever team you'll be working with next time we do a project, what does the team need to do better than your current team did?

4) When we write or draw about our books, why do we use thinking prompts?

5) Look at another student's bookshelves. What is one book you found that you would like to read? Why did you select this book?

6) Write a short story about something that happened at school, but add a fantasy element. Your story should be about as long as what would look like a page on lined paper. BE SURE TO INCLUDE:
- correctly punctuated dialogue
- setting description
- sound
- action

message 7: by Sam (new)

Sam | 46 comments 6) The last period bell rang.
" Almost done!" I thought to my self. It was the last day of school. I couldn't wait to be free. I walked down the hallway and saw a slight glow coming from the vent near by. I knelt down and took a look inside.
"Freddy! What are you doing?" I asked.
" we'll, as you can see I'm glowing. That's what I do when I'm nervous."
" Nervous about what?" I asked.
"Paige," Freddy said." It's the last day of school and people go crazy!"
"Whatever happens you'll be fine, now come on we'll be late for science class." Freddy and I hurried along. When we walked in the door Paige was standing there.
"Hi Freddy" she said in a manly voice. Uh oh, he stArted to glow again. Once he sat down Velma stepped in front of him, " hold on I got that for ya" she sat down and turned in to a big pile of gew. Freddy stood there traumatized holding his books in his hand.
"Freddy'" the teacher said"please sit down."
"Ya Freddy." Repeated Paige. So Freddy did. SQUISH! Ew! Then the bell rung and we all ran out of class. Freddy walked behind all of the others.
" I can't believe I put up with them!" He said
"It's ok, you were the bigger person. They just gave you a hard time. Don't worry, what goes around comes around!" And we both walked out of that school never to return.

6)Once upon a time there were two little babies named Lyla and Nathan. They have had a secret ever since they met each other at the park and their secret is… they are super babies! Here’s how it started. One day, while they were going to the park with their moms, they settled near a bush. When Lyla looked at the bush she saw something purple. She told Nathan what she saw and they crawled off their strollers and headed behind the bush. They saw a purple spiral and underneath it was a piece of paper that said “Hello Lyla and Nathan, if you step in this portal you will be transported to a place called goodvill. It is a place where chosen people turn into super heros, in your case a super baby”. Lyla and Nathan had never been chosen to be a super baby before, so they crawled into the portal and soon saw a place filled with lots of babies that were crawling about with capes. They saw a place called get a free cape, so they crawled with excitement and got a blue and pink cape. Pink for Lyla and blue for Nathan. Then they saw a flashing green light on their wrist, it’s a watch! They touched the green light and told them to report to mission room and press the right button so, they pressed the button on the right and immediately they were at the mission room. Then right in front of them appeared a man and led them to the commander. The commander said “Hello, Lyla and Nathan your mission today is to help your moms because the bad guys knew that we sent new super babies in and created a robot to make your moms disappear in thin air. So stop that machine and fly”. At once Lyla and Nathan took off and headed to the exit and found themselves where they began and the portal closed. Then they saw the robot in front of their moms and they flew as fast as they could to knock out the robot but instead, when the robot saw them charging at him he accidentally hit a tree and bounced back and hit the robot and the robot had disappeared in thin air! Then Lyla and Nathan flew to their moms and gave them a nice snuggle and the portal opened up again and they flew up to the portal and were back in Goodville. Then the green light appeared on the watch and they pressed the right button and again they were back at the mission room. Then they went to the commander's room and the commander said, “Lyla and Nathan, I have given you this medal to appreciate you for being brave and confident from fighting the robot”. So Lyla and Nathan took the medal and headed to the exit but before they could leave the commander said to keep their capes in case they come back to the park and go back by the bush and see the portal. Then Lyla and Nathan left Goodville and returned home with their moms and lived happily ever after.
The End.

message 27: by Cbranscomb (new)

Cbranscomb | 18 comments 1)The most important thing that I learned from this book is that it has multiple theme's or lessons.

2)That I should be able to choose my partners not you and to choose them wisely.

3)To do more than usual cause our group was small so instead of doing one part do 3 or 2 to get the job done.

4)So people know what the image means or what it is suppose to represent.

5)I would like to read the Hunger games cause it looks like it has a lot of action and suspense I liked the movie even though it made me mad my dad and I said that it wouldn't be kids out there fighting it would be parents if anything because they would fight for there kids.

6) Hey my name is Chris and I am at a super hero school I have multiple powers and my friends and I are in our study class to build awareness and intelligence but our teacher keeps dropping our grade it's annoying we aren't talking or anything just doing work. "Um Mr. Inferno why do you keep dropping our do now grade if we are dong our work and not talking," no reply, I asked asks again but he ignores me like usual but my friends say forget about our parents will handle it.
The next day after our parents talked to him he didn't bring down our grade he just was mean to us, but soon right after my friends and I got a little to angry, "Why are you acting like a ***** for the past few days its annoying the **** out of us," he replies, "Why are you yelling at me you better know your place a matter of fact I challenge all of you to a teacher against student duel. If i win you listen to me and don't care what I do but if you win I will leave you alone," "We except." we replied
We got ready for the battle BBBBBaaaaaaannnnngggggg we fought Mr.Inferno is strong but he couldn't handle our strength we one and he left us alone and gave us the proper grades we diserved the end.


message 28: by Rushi (last edited Dec 05, 2013 03:02PM) (new)

Rushi Patel | 33 comments 1) The most important thing that I learned from my book was that you can't trust anyone no matter what if your secret is too rare to be told to anyone.
2) The most important thing that I learned as working as a team was that you can't give up on what have started and another one is that no matter how far you are for your project to completed you can't stop there you must work through to get it done.
3) We need to have a better organization on what people are doing and how fast but good they do it.
4) When we write or talk we use thinking prompts because we could show our thinking about the book and can show we understand the book.
5) The book that I liked on another's bookshelf was The Titans Curse. I chose this book because I wanted to read this book too.
6) "Hey Mr. Boss, can we have a extra credit if you make a strong spell on the mouse and have the formulas written down on the goblin skeleton" a student said.
"Yes" replied Mr. Boss.
Mr. Boss was very happy that his students were wanting to learn.(I mean who doesn't want want to learn about magic and all that other stuff.)Well there was one boy who hated to even learn about magic and his name was Harry Einstein. His ancestor Albert Einstein was the man who invented magic and was a story behind magic in his hidden library where no ordinary person could find. He hide five keys somewhere in the world and gave it to people that he trusted the most because the magic in that book is very strong and risky if you don't have a proper will. But one day people fought over the book, the humans and the wizards/witches. The humans lost and than hated magic because the magic they did wasn't as powerful as the wizards. "BANG BANG POW POW AHH AHH!" They all were satisfied after the war was over. From that day humans hated magic because of what crisis had came to them when they had this enormous war. The End.
