1/22/09 - The Tale of Despereaux

I would persuade Despereuax to get the king to go down to the dungeon with him so the king see where the pathways and hideaways are. Despereaux gives up way to easily he was in Pea's room for two minutes trying to get the king to go with him to find Pea. The king did not even give despereaux an answer to his question and Desperaux left the room . I mean Desperaux explained to the king his plan and wanted the king to go with him. once he got done with his "plan'' he left. Just like he went to his dad and The head Mouse was there he asked The Head Mouse to repent him and he walked out with no answer.

1/6/09 - The Tale of Despereaux
One opinion that Despereaux thinks that he is in love with the Princess Pea. Despereaux was in Princess pea's room when her dad or the King was playing music. The Princess spotted Despereaux and picked him up. This is just the first part of Despereaux love for the Princess Pea. Despereaux learned how to read Books now he imagines that he is the

1/5/09 - Two Goals For 2009

GREAT GOAL!
My first goal for 2009 is to read more minutes . I would like to read at least 300 minutes every week. I think I could read more when i am at home. I would like to read more because I have only been reading around 200 minutes. I have a good grade but I would like to bring up my grade just a little bit.

My second goal for 2009


12/17/08 - Ida B
The main problem my character faces is her mother has cancer. After Ida found out that her mother has cancer Ida has completely changed. Ida no longer talks to anybody. Ida does not talk to the trees. Ida is mad at her dad because he sold part of the farm and told Ida she has to go back to school. Ida found out that the people her dad sold part of the farm to had a girl that is in Ida's class. Ida found Clarie and her little brother by a tree Ida was sitting in. Ida jumped down out of the tree and yelled at Clarie and her little brother to leave and it was her land and they did not belong on it. The next day of school Ida sat on the stairs as always. This time Ms.W came and sat next to her. Ida asked Ms. W if she had ever done anything that she wish she had not.

12/15/08 - Sharing Online Journal With Parents
I thought that sharing the online journal with are parents was fun. My mom could not say much about the journals because my dad was being annoying. My mom said that she thought it was a good idea . She liked that you can get on your child's journal and see how they are doing. Another thing she liked was that you can always check out what your kid is reading.

112/10/08 - Ida B
One main thing that happened today was that Ida finely got over not talking to anybody. Ida's teacher asked Ida if she wanted to read Alexadra Potemkin And The Space Shuttle To Planet Z. Ida B was scared at first but once she started to read she felt like she was no longer in side the class room and it made her more comfortable. This change was important because now Ida B is close to being her normal self.

Another main thing that happened today was that Ida's heart started to change back but it never did. Ida actually talked in front of the class and looked at her mom and Dad.

12/5/08 Mr. McGuire said
You have the first part of the So What, but not the second. What about facing troubles?
How do you like Ida B so far? Can you relate to Ida?
Please add another sentence or two when you write your journal entries. I would like to see more specific details.


12/4/08 I Had Trouble In Getting To Solla Sollew
The so what in Solla Sollew was that Dr. Seuss was trying to get out that there are troubles every where you go. And that no matter how hard you try to get away from trouble they always seem to find you. The main point of the story is to show how a little creature was trying to ecsape his troubles and he just found himself in more trouble. Like when he was on his way to Solla Sollow he found himself having to pull a camel and the camels owner.


12/4/08 Ida B
Today in my book Ida found out that her mother had cancer. Her dad told her that she had to go back to school. Ida's heart turned into a hard black stone and now she can't cry or show her true feelings. Ida also found out that her dad sold parts of the orchid. The parts that he sold are the parts with her favorite tree friends. Ida's mom is now taking better medicine so she wont get as sick. Ida's dad also got rid of LuLu.

12/4/08 - Emma Ida B
I have read Ida B and loved it but you are right its a little weird.


12/3/08 - Colin the Hardy Boys
It sounds like a good book we should get to gather and talk about your favorite part in your book. It sounds ochward.


12/2/08 - Ida B
So far in my book Ida B has talked to the trees. The tree named Paulie T. told Ida that there is trouble on the way. So Ida went to the Brook . And asked the Brook if Paulie T. was lying.


11/18/08 - Warriors
At the end of the book I predict that the ShadowClan will come back and want to fight. And that Firepaw will be the only one to stop them. I also think that Ravenpaw is not a trader and Firepaw will prove that. I think that the Shadow Clan.
------------------------
11/17/08 - Warriors
Today I thought that Barley would lead Bluestar,FirePaw , RavenPaw , GrayPaw , TigerClaw back to their Clan Safley
-----------------------
11/14/08 - Warriors
Today in my book BlueStar asked FirePaw, GrayPaw, RavenPaw and TigerClaw to go to Moonstone with her. on their way they had to sneak across WindClan terrioty, sneak by twolegs and sneak by dogs. FirePaw now is having bad dreams about his clan.
-----------------------
11/14/08 corbit c. said
this sands like a good book
.
-----------------------
11/13/08 - Warriors
The main character in my book is FirePaw. FirePaw is a young kittypet who stumbled in to the woods .A couple of cats seen him on the ThunderClan territory . Now FirePaw is a apprentice. And BlueStar is his leader. FirePaw has gotten him self in a lot of trouble from joining the ThunderClan.

-----------------------
11/12/08- Warriors
Today FirePaw now has to take care of YellowFang. BlueStar is now the mentor of FirePaw.
-----------------------
11/11/08 - Warriors
The best part in my book was when FirePaw ( Rusty) got in a fight with LongTail. This is the best part in my book so far because it shows the real courage lying inside FirePaw. I think FirePaw surprised LongTail which is very awkward. This is akward becaues LongTail is well trained Warrior.
When FirePaw attacked LongTail you could feel the thrill that FirePaw was having. You could also feel how weird LongTail felt. I could feel the excitement in all of the other cats. FirePaw was very proud of what he did. BlueStar was in shock of how FirePaw stood up against LongTail.

11/11/08 Cyranda H. Said
These are really good comments. One other thing is that I did get to read Granny Torrelli makes soup and it was a good book.

-----------------------
11/10/08 - Warriors
1. Rusty is now part of the ThunderClan.
2. Rusty's new name is Firepaw.
3. Three warriors went to battle with the RiverClan.
4. RavenPaw came back to the Clan with a cut on his paw.
5. RedTail died in the fight with the RiverClan.
6.Firepaw (Rusty) got in a fight with LongTail.
7.FirePaw (Rusty) is now really good friends with GrayPaw.
So far my book is really good it has a bunch of names though but still it is really good.
-----------------------
11/7/08 - Warriors
Today I finished Granny Torrelli Makes Soup And Started Warriors.
I predict that Rusty will get in to many fights with the other Clans. I also think that Rusty will not have the Warrior blood to become a warrior in the ThunderClan. But I am only on page 30. Rusty is just a kittypet who has lived in a Twoleg place his whole life and has never steped
foot off of his graden post. That is why I don't think Rusty would make a very good Warrior.
-----------------------

11/6/08- Granny Torrelli MakesSoup
Today in my book a new girl came in. The new girls name is Janine so far it seems like Janine loves Bailey. Granny Torrelli always tells story's about when she was around Rosie's age. By the way Bailey is a boy not a girl.
-----------------------
11/5/08- Granny Torrelli Makes Soup
Today I just started this book. The main characters are Rosie ,Granny Torrelli and Bailey. Bailey is blind and Rosie wants to be just like him.
Rosie and Bailey are to very close friends. When Bailey got his first Braille book Rosie wanted one really bad. She asked her mom over and over for one but she never got one.
