2/9/09 - Cause and Effect
A cause and effect that happened in my book was when The Hardy Boys were at the Woodson Academy and Mr. Kurt said that the Academy belonged to him. The effect of that was having the Hardy Boys were working for their friend who says that it is his and they are working for a man who says it belongs to him. I think that the Hardy Boys friend is lying. I think that Mr. Kurt is the one who should own the Woodson Academy.

Across Five Aprils
I would like to persuade the main character Jethro in my book to think better of the Rebel side and not believe what the people around him think. Like his brother Bill went to the Rebel side and Jethro thinks that he went against his country. I think that if Jethro was old enough to join in the war he would probably have a really tough time deciding where to go. But, in the end I think that he would go to the Rebel side. I think that all of the people that tell Jethro that the Rebs are bad, are just agreeing with what they here in the paper and what other people tell him.

1/21/09 - Across Five Aprils

The major part that happened in my book was when John found his brother Bill where all of the Rebs were. Bill ran away from home and joined the Rebs. His brother John went and joined the Confederates in the war.

1/6/09 - Across Five Aprils
One opinion of the main character in my book is that Jethro wants war to happen. His family and Abe Lincoln don't want a war to start. Jethro was talking about the war with his mom and she said that Abe has come to a fork in the road and that he has to take one of the roads. I think that if the United States would not have started the war we would have looked weak, but we would have looked like are country that was well ran. Since we did start the war we look strong, but we still had the protesters to make the country look like it is well ran. Jethro is choosing the side that makes the country look like it is strong, but he is only nine.

1/5/09 - Two Goals For 2009
A goal that I have for 2009 is that I want to read 25 more books. I could do this by reading a lot. I have to read a 180 minutes each week so I figure that if I could double 180 minutes that would be two books a week. I think that I do read a lot but, I do not read enough books. I hope that I can find a long series that I enjoy that way I could have a lot of good books that I like to read. I might read the
Chronicles of Narnia.

Another goal that I have for 2009 is that I want to keep all of my grades above 95%. I will do that by making sure that I turn in all of my homework and classwork. I will also make sure that I do every extra credit thing possible. If my grade does get below 95% I will maybe write a report on what we are studying. If I pay attention in class I could get good scores on my tests.

12/17/08 - How Angel Peterson Got His Name
The major problem in my book is that everyone tries to break a world record. The risk is that they could die in the process. When Angel tried to break the record of seventy-four miles per hour on skis he was very confident in himself. He ended up beating the record when he didn't want to. Once he started going he wanted to stop but everybody thought that wanted to keep going because he started to say no but all everyone thought they heard was yeah. When Emil tried to be the first person to fly on a hang glider he was also very confident in himself (See a pattern). Getting going is what was the easy part, but once he got in the air he got more and more scared. Everyone was telling him to keep holding on, but when he see a pile of straw below him, he let go. I can't wait to read another one of the crazy things that Angel and his friends do next.

12/15/08 - Sharing Online Journal With Parents
When I told my mom that we had homework she acted like most kids do when they find out they have homework. She agreed to get on the blog and do our homework. When she got done reading it she had some interesting things to say. The first thing that she told me was that it wasn't long enough. The second thing that she said was that she wanted my paragraphs to be more like a story. She said they were to boring.
_
12/10/08 - The Rifle
One event that happened in my book that was important was when the gunsmith sold his gun to John Byam. This was important because the gunsmith didn't know what John was going to do with the rifle. He didn't know if John was going to join the British, and he didn't know if John was going to fight against the British. As luck would have it John ended up joining some volunteers to fight against the British. As for the gunsmith, well he got hung.

Another event in my book that was important was when John Byam died. This was important because John was the owner of the sharp shooting rifle. Since John died that means the rifle could be in anyone's hands. John was also a very good shot so the volunteers would have one less rifle and one less sharp shooter.

12/8/08 - Call Me Francis Tucket
The main character in my book is Francis Tucket. He was traveling by wagon train to Oregon when he was kidnapped by the Pawnee hunting party. He was rescued by a man named Mr. Grimes.

So, what did you think of
The Outsiders? For the last few years, it has been one of the all-time favorites in sixth grade. Do you agree? How do you compare it with the Hardy Boys books that you have read?
_
12/5/08---Bailey
The Outsiders sounds like a good book.My book is Love, Annie. It is about a girl helping people with their love lives. I am just recommend this book so you don't have to read.

_
11/18/08 - The Outsiders
I predict that then end of my book will be the opposite of what the beginning was. I think that the gang will be more careful and maybe stop getting into fights.
_
11/17/08 - The Outsiders
A prediction that I made that was wrong was when Ponyboy was walking and got jumped by the socs. I was predicting that he was going to take off running, but instead he stopped walking.
_
11/14/08 - Hay Meadow
When I read my book John started to like, and get used to staying alone with his sheep. When John got hit by the bear I thought that he wasn't going to live. I think it would be cool to live alone for three months in the canyons, except when a bear came and ran over you like a truck.
_
11/14/08--Brianna
That seems like a good book. What do you like about the book? I bet theres a lot of things you like about the book.

_
11/13/08 - The Hay Meadow
The main character in my book is John Barron. John is fourteen years old and has to take sheep to a hay meadow for three months. He says that he is too young to be by himself for three months, but his dad told him that his great grandfather did it when he was only ten. John is pretty bad in school, but tries his hardest to achieve what his dad wants him to. Johns mother died when he was only three when she died, so he doesn't know much about her.
_
11/12/08 - Canyons
Today I finished my book. Hooray!! The ending was great, but if you want to know the ending, you have to read the book yourself. I think that most people really wouldn't be able to get into it.

I would like to find a skull even though I might end up having more than one and have no room for them and have to leave them outside even though I can't handle bones in front of me in plan view for me to lay my eyes on I would try to find a set of skeleton bones even though I would donate them to a museum for the people to see the bones out on display every time there by them.
_
11/11/08 - Canyons
The best part in my book so far is when Brennan went camping in the canyons, and found a skull. Brennan was camping with his mother, his mothers boyfriend, and little kids. When he was trying to fall a sleep he felt something hit his back. He started to dig it out. When he was done, he found out that it was a human skull. I liked this part because, I thought that Brennan's life was too dull. So, when he found the skull I thought that it gave his life a little excitement. He got information about the wars, so that he could see if the bullet hole was from a gun from a war.

11/7/08 Mr. McGuire said
I love books in a series. It just seems like I get to know the characters better. And, I get into them so much faster. What will you do when you run out of Hardy Boys books?

_
11/6/08 - The Hardy Boys
When I read my book, I was thinking that the Hardy boys were going to die. The Hardy's had gone in a secret room where money was being counterfeited. They soon found out that they weren't alone. When they thought they escaped two guys pointed a gun at them. Like always the detectives arrested the bad guys, and were hero's again. I would like to see the bad guys win instead of the Hardy boy's.
_
11/5/08 - The Hardy Boys
Today when I read my book, the Hardy's were working on a case that involved a person, that is giving them threating notes. The Hardy's got hit in the back of the head and put on there boat while they were sailing down the willow river. When they regained consciousness the two detectives took turns pulling there boat until the were rescued.
