what a blog is. But be sure to check out the changes on the webpage, too!
Here is a blog done by 5th graders from Mamaronek, N.Y.
Here is a site that was designed by elementary students that gives
everything about blogging from A-Z!
We will talk about these sites and blogging more on Monday. Do
these student blogs inspire you to think of things we might do with
the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe?
I would like you to post the list of words you were whose meanings
you were uncertain of by Monday. I have made a list and I am curious
to see if I guessed right.
Here are some of the questions or thoughts I am responding to from Thursday.
Hannah asked, "in the book why does the person start walking in snow is it magic or something?" Hannah also aksed, "in the book are the characterrs good people or bad people?"
1st Hannah, Your question about the significance of the snow is important. What do some of the rest of you think the snow might represent? 2nd -- It seems that Susan, Peter and Lucy are all good -- but what of Edmund? Can we really say that he is bad?
Sophie said, "I think the Faun is really nice to let a child go. But eating Turkey Delight from a magic queen! That is plain wierd. p.s. did I spell Wierd right?"
Yup - You followed the old rule, "I before E - except after C or when followed by A, as in neighbor or weigh."
Anybody want to tackle why the faun lets Lucy go? You are right, Sophie--it is nice.
Also -- I think we will make Turkish delight to see if you all like it.
Emma said, "Mr.Lewis's mother and wife both had cancer and were ill when they died." Good observation Emma. The biographers say that he really went downhill fast after his wife Joy died. It is lucky for us that he wrote the Narnia books before this.
Be sure to post once before Monday. I picked up copies of the book
at the library this afternoon for those of you still waiting for it.
