This week was a pretty easy week. This week we started of with reading a new book that we picked out individually for when we do another one paper for our book reports at the end of the six weeks. We then continued the book October Sky and now that I have had a chance to read more of it, it’s getting a little more interesting but I still am not a huge fan of the book.
With what we’ve read of October Sky we used that knowledge to list out some of the characters characteristics, individually then discuss them as a group. Going over the characteristics as a class really helps me understand the book and the characters more because each group had to have different pairings for the people in the book they were going to compare to or see how they each benefit from each other. Something else that I learned was October Sky is also Rocket boys and I thought that was very interesting!
