Summer Learning Journey - Day 5

DAY 5/21st  December
Activity 1
Think about all of the books that you have read this year and recommend one for Curious Kiwi to read. On your blog list the title and author of the book and then provide a short description of it. What is the book about?    
                                                                                                                                                                     James and the giant peach by Roald  Dahl
I think James and the giant peach is a great book to read especially for those who have great imaginations
So it was about a little boy who lived with his 2 aunts. One day he meet a man and the man gave him small glowing objects. As he was walking back he tripped and all of them escaped. One day he saw a huge peach, suddenly he saw a glow he digged thru it and then he crawled his way in.
Then he saw human sized insects and his journey to new York city began.
Activity 2
Read the following three reviews of books that are really popular right now in Canada. If you had to choose one for Curious Kiwi to read on the plane, which one would you choose? Post the name of the book that you would chose on your blog. Below the title explain why you would choose that book.

C:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\Catching Fire book cover image.jpgBook 1: Catching Fire (The Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins
Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol - a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create. Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
Book 2: Matilda by Roald Dahl

Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she's just a nuisance. She expects school to be different but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a kid-hating terror of a headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It'll take a superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves and Matilda may be just the one to do it!
Book 3: Diary of a Wimpy Kid – The Ugly Truth
C:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\DoaWK image.jpg
Greg Heffley has always been in a hurry to grow up. But is getting older really all it’s cracked up to be? Greg suddenly finds himself dealing with the pressures of boy-girl parties, increased responsibilities, and even the awkward changes that come with getting older—all without his best friend, Rowley, at his side. Can Greg make it through on his own? Or will he have to face the “ugly truth.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Hunger Games
I have chosen this book because I think it would be a very cool and adventurous book and heaps of Kiwi’s like action and a little only a little bit of romance                  (Sometimes not).
Bonus
  1. I looked around the room. Nothing seemed unusual, but then…

  1. I knew it was going to be an unusual day when my mom came into my bedroom and said...

  1. The spaceship was out of control and only one person could save us....
I looked around the room. Nothing seemed unusual, but then leaped out a hideous creature. I was deeply horrified what it was going to do to me. Suddenly something very strange, very odd happened it changed color.
Suddenly a huge flash appeared I couldn't see anything soon my  vision came back but there was nothing, no sign of that creature I had saw. There was just me standing in a corner scared.
The End

Hi Cherise!

Well done! Great reason for reading the book. I'm going to recommend Matilda to you too, just in case you haven't read it already.

I like your story! It made me want to know more. Don't be afraid to get really into it, you're clearly really creative and know how to make suspense in your writing.

Keep up the great work!

Looking forward to reading more of your blogs later!

Mark

Mōrena Cherise,

Great reviews! I've started reading a book called Conspiracy 365: September. It's one book of a very entertaining series, and it has kept me hooked, wanting to see what happens next. I'm not sure if you have read it, but if you haven't, be sure to give it a read!

Your story at the end was also very entertaining! Maybe you could write a book of your own!

Keep it up!
Iisa
