Book Clubs: Eight Keys – Jot 1

So far in the book Eight Keys I don’t understand why it’s a mystery because the keys don’t lead to something mysterious. The key just lead to a room with pictures of her mom and a chair with a bear sitting on it and it the bears hand there was a letter from her dad that he wrote before he died (Elise’s parents both died when she was little). The letter didn’t have anything that had to do with mystery in it. I’m thinking that the mystery is having to find the keys and seeing what’s inside each room. I also think that part of the adventure is getting to know her parents a little bit more. Over all I don’t think the book has that much mystery in it.

Read Aloud: Star Girl – Jot 1

Hillary Kimball used to have power over everyone but now Star Girl does. I know this because at the start of the book Hillary “held court” and everyone agreed with her statement because they didn’t want to get on her “bad side”. But now everyone is following Star Girl around. I know this because at the school football game she was in the court during halftime doing dances and only a couple of people went, but at the next game 1,000 people went just to see her dance the only people that didn’t come was Hillary and her boy friend just because they want to get all of the attention. Another example that I know that Star Girl gets all the attention is when a cheerleader invited her to be on the cheerleading team Over 100 people came to watch cheer practice just to see her. Now instead of Hillary getting all of the attention Star Girl does.

Independent Reading: Jot 1 – Boys Against Girls

The Hartford’s are starting to like the Malloy’s. I know this because they were smiling at each other at the table and wally was thinking that if the Malloy’s weren’t there then he would be really board. He was also thinking that if the Malloy’s were not at Thanksgiving he would be sitting at dinner and talking about boring things instead of smiling and trying not to laugh. He’s also thinking that if his old friends were there they would be doing something fun but they wouldn’t be pranking each other and keeping secrets from their parents about the pranking. He’s also realizing that the Malloy’s are not all that bad.

Book Clubs: The War With Grandpa – Jot 2

I think Peter is starting to feel bad for grandpa and sad that he started the whole war. Peter is starting to realize that his grandpa is a great guy. He is also realizing that it’s not grandpas fault that he took Peters room. I think he’s realizing all of this because he’s having a great time with his grandpa going fishing and grandpa is being so nice to him. I think he is also remembering when he was little and that he played with his grandpa all the time. He’s remembering how much fun they used to have together. Maybe he’s thinking that the war is a bad idea because he wants to have fun and play like he and his grandpa used to.

Book Clubs: The War With Grandpa – Jot 1

Peter is so mad that his grandpa is coming to live in his house with him because his grandfather will get his room and Peter has to move upstairs into the guest room. Peters grandfather has a bad leg so he can’t walk up 3 flights of stairs to get to the guest room, that’s why he’s moving into Peters room.I predict that Peter and his grandfather will start to prank each other. I think that Peter will start to like his new room and at the end of the book grandpas leg will get better and they will switch rooms which means that Peter will get his room back.
