Which Book Character is the Most Upset?

Hi Students!

Follow the directions on the prompt. Take into consideration ALL of the characters from ALL of the books that you have read so far this year. Think! Which character would be most upset with how the author portrayed or dealt with him/her/it? Remember to back up your ideas with what you know from the story.

One good paragraph. Watch your sentences, spelling, and punctuation. Be creative!

Be sure you mention the character’s name, and the title of the book (the important words) should be in capital letters.


Create a Terrifying Creature


Follow the directions on the image. In addition: State your creature’s name (yetishark) or (explain the name if you modify the parts: sheti) and why the combination you chose is the most terrifying. Describe any special qualities/characteristics of your new creature and what your new creature does.

As always, begin with a creative lead in sentence and conclude with something thoughtful. One good DESCRIPTIVE paragraph. Let’s see some commas!

Let’s Go to India!


Hi Students!

Since you are currently learning all about ancient India, I thought it would be fun for you to take a virtual field trip to present day India via Project Explorer. (Image courtesy of projectexplorer.org)

1. I would like for you to watch the video “The British in India” and read the text below clicking on the links for more in-depth information.

2. On the right-hand side of the page, watch the videos ” A Taste of Mumbai” and “The Art of Henna” and read the texts and click on the links under each respective video for more information on those topics.

3. After the Henna video, you can watch the video on “The Sari.”

When you have completed all this, write to this prompt:

Reflect on what you have learned from your short trip and include the following:

History of India



And some personal thoughts (Have you been to India? Want to go? Have you had Henna done? Eaten Indian food? Anything else?)

Create your paragraphs where you see fit…watch your sentence structure!

Who Stole Frosty’s Nose?


A terrible crime has been committed! Someone stole Frosty the Snowman’s nose! You say you didn’t do it but, how do we know for sure?

Write your very best alibi explaining your whereabouts and how you couldn’t possibly have stolen Frosty’s nose. Be very persuasive…otherwise…

One good paragraph. This is a persuasive write, meaning you need to be very convincing with your reasoning. Good luck!

Have a very fun holiday break, safe travels, and see you in 2018!!

Deserted Island

Hi Students!

You get to take one book that you have read, one food item, and one famous person (living or dead) to a deserted island. What and whom do you take? Explain why for each fully.

Remember that the important words in a book title are capitalized.

Be sure to have a creative opening sentence!
