Yesterday I went to the annual seal circus. My family and arrived so early that we got to sit in the best spot-the front row. There were so many entertaining stunts. My favourite was by far, the acrobatic seals.They were doing all this cool stuff, and the best bit was when one of them accidentally fell into the water. Everybody started laughing, even the seal’s partner. look mum took a photo:
when we got home my mum posted the photo on seal-book and guess what. the next morning my mums photo was on the news and she was being interviewed about the extraordinary picture.
the only real physical side of Sammie is that it is a scruffy thing. i know this from this sentence:
I guess they didn’t want a scruffy thing like me messing up their uppity seaside neighborhood.
from this sentence i inferred that Sammie was a stray cat and hadn’t bathed in a very long time.
i personally think that this cat is pretty smart.it knows the way that humans around the area it lives are like and makes sure it only goes to the places at night to get the food. it knows if it were to go during the day it would get shooed away.
i believe that Sammie has an optimistic soul and loves playing around. i think that he is like a normal cat he likes cuddling and snuggling. but unlike other cats he is very grateful that he has a family to take care of him.
i think that Sammie is a very kind and playful cat because he likes when the family comes and takes care of him but he also likes his privacy because he said he liked being alone in his new home.
i think thatv Sammie sees that life is harsh but no matter what you will always have a happy ending.
Prompt: Cushion Scarlet Annoying Watered Violin
“AHHHHHH” yelled scarlet as her annoying brother exited her bedroom. She threw her cushion at him just as he slammed the door. She sat angrily on her bed as she looked out her watered window to the murky sky as it had just stopped raining. In one of the raindrops she saw a reflection of her violin that was in the corner of her room. She stood and went to grab it as she knew the only thing that would be able to calm her down would be her violin.
Fact #1 Fiction is All about the character
The main character in this story is Laurie. Laurie abandoned the proper uniform for his school which are overalls and instead wore his scraggy pants and a baseball cap. I think this shows that Laurie is quite misbehaved and doesn’t listen to the rules. He also made up a person that apparently went to his class and said everything that he, himself did was Laurie and his mother only found this out in parent teacher interviews.
Fact #2 Fiction is all about what your character wants
I think that Laurie wants to feel good about himself so makes up Charles so that he can say all the things that he did wrong was Charles. I think that Laurie doesn’t want to fess up to his parents so he makes Charles up to tell his parents what he is wrong but in another way.
Fact #3 Fiction is all about how your character gets or does not get what he wants
I think that Laurie does get what he wants but also doesn’t. he gets what he wants because his parents believe that Charles is doing all those things wrong and they never really question it. he gets what he wants because he feels good about himself. but he also doesn’t get what he wants because when his mother goes to the parent teacher interview she finds out that Charles was actually Laurie.
Fact #4 Fiction is all about how your character changes
There isn’t actually much change in this story because it ends with Laurie’s mother finding out that Charles isn’t real. So we don’t actually know if Laurie repents or if he gets away with it but there is a change in the story like when Laurie comes home saying that Charles became the teacher’s helper. That shows that Laurie changed his behaviour at school.
Fact #5 Fiction is all about the world the author creates
I think that the author made a really relatable world. I think that she made a world where kids Cn relate because its school and home. I feel that these are the 2 places that children spend most of their time at. I think that that’s why the author chose home and school as the setting or “world” to make it moe relatable for children.
This is a world where people can relate. Anyone from anywhere can come here and find that it is just like theirs.
I think 1 of the themes in this story is loss. I felt loss in this story when Alexia said that she loved music but couldn’t hear it anymore.
I think the author is trying to tell us that there are deaf people all around us and all around the world and we should learn to respect them and know that it can happen to you when ever. I saw an example of this when Alexia and her mother were using the whiteboard as a way to communicate.
I think that people who might connect to this story are people who have been deaf since they were born or tragically lost there hearing some time in their life. i have a connection to this because i watched a video on this boy who was deaf and he had to use sign language to communicate to his friends and family
A part in the story that is figurative is when Alexia is talking about how she can sometimes hear music but its in a sound proof box and she is out side the box.
This is the exact sentence:
It’s the only thing, if I really, really listen I can sometimes hear it, but it’s quiet, muted. It’s like its playing, softly inside a sound proof room and I’m outside the door, sitting and straining to hear.
When she says its like shes showing that it is an example and that its not the complete truth.
She shows that she wants to hear music again but can’t.
A repeating pattern in this story is that she is always saying she’s deaf and that her whole life has changed because she can’t listen to music. I think it shows that she used to express her self through music but now that she can’t listen to music anymore so she is lost and it shows that she showed her thoughts and opinions through music but no longer can because she can’t listen to music.
I think that what the author is trying to convey is that we should not take anything for granted because we could have our whole life perfect one minute and the next minute we could have it all gone. The author shows this when she said that Alexia woke up from amnesia and felt quite stressed that she could see people talking but she could not hear them. I felt this showed that we should not take our senses for granted and that we should feel very privileged of having our senses.
my family and i been living in this lighthouse for about a month or so and last night i just had my first encounter with lightning. surprisingly i was sleeping very peacefully on a stormy night but then the flash of lightning made me wake up instantaneously. i gasped in shock. i sat up as the sound of thunder rang through my ears. i got out of my bed and ran to my door. it creaked as it flew open. i ran up stairs to my sisters room i opened the door and not to my surprise she was also awake waiting for me to come.
