What do you think of the new theme?
This week’s topic revolves around The Wednesday Wars and Kiki Strike. Pretend that Holling or Kiki has been invited to your house for dinner. Based on what you know about your character from all the assigned reading so far, please include the following in your paragraph:
What would be good topics of conversation for the dinner table? Which topics would you definitely want to steer away from? What questions would you ask of your character? Remember to support all opinions with examples from the reading.
Girls, if you feel you don’t know enough about Kiki, you can have one of the other girls over for dinner! But please specify which one!
Be creative and remember good opening and ending sentences.
This week’s post has to do with Greek mythology and your god or goddess. Pretend that a new amusement park is opening up in the Tampa Bay area, and you have been asked to design a ride or attraction for this new theme park called Mount Olympus World. Based on everything you have learned about your god or goddess, what type of ride or attraction (be it purely for fun like a carousel ride or an educational attraction like Disney’s The Land) would you design? Keep in mind that what you design must reflect all that you know about your god or goddess. Be creative and have fun, but make it somewhat plausible. I am not looking for anything silly. Please include the following guidelines in your description:
1. Give your ride or attraction a name.
2. Be specific in its purpose. (Think about why a ride or attraction is in a theme park and why you re-visit your favorites.)
3. Be detailed in your descriptions. We should be able to picture your ride in our minds.
4. Design something you would go on. (Think about what you like, but do not copy or take an idea from Disney World, Busch Gardens, etc.)
I am looking for a good paragraph or two with a clever introductory sentence and a clever closing sentence. Please do not re-state your first sentence as your last.
Since many of you share the same god or goddess, please be respectful and do not borrow anyone else’s ideas. Make it your own.

Greetings English Students!
Please follow the directions on the image and compose one good paragraph. Be sure to answer all of the questions. Camelot is the fictional place of castle and court in medieval times associated with the legendary King Arthur. Westeros is a fictional place found in the series A Game of Thrones. DO NOT USE THIS ONE. You all should be familiar with the rest of the choices.
Narnia is door number one and so forth.
Since many of you are reading or have read independent reading books that involve some time travel, I thought this prompt might be fun. Please follow the directions on the image and answer all the parts of the prompt. Be sure to explain all reasoning with why.
