Title: My Forever Home

Author: Gail

 

Physical

it doesn’t say what he looks like or what he is but  i think it is a cat because he said

“Come on Sammie, here puss puss puss.”

and

“He is worth purring for”

he is the main character so he plays a big role. at first he is looking for a home then at the end a family takes him in. he is really angry at first then he softens up because he found a family that loves him. with his experience i am not quite sure what it was.

Intellectual

i think he was quite smart because he knew that in the middle of the night at the back of everyone’s door there was food for him to eat. he knows that now he has found a family that loves him and that won’t kick him out like all his other owners. he was a big impact for the boy because i sounds like he was a lonely child so having a pet and someone else is a big impact. i think if the family didn’t take him in he would survive just fine because he knew where the ocean was and were to get food and even better he had shelter. i think he learns that there was hope that people or a family would still love him.

” people left food out at heir back door and i knew exactly where to go and find it.”

Emotion

well at the beginning i guess he felt lost and hopeless and at the end i guess he feels the opposite to lost and hopeless. his feelings change because like i said before he felt lost and hopeless but at the end he feels like that he has a home and hopeful greater things will come. i think he feels like he is a nice and grateful cat but i guess over time he has to rethink it because no loves and he just has to keep walking. when he see people knocking down things that he lives with he doesn’t know what is going on so he thinks it is for him.

“now i have a massive bedroom underneath this platform. Wow, could my life get any better?”

Social

well in the beginning he doesn’t get along with any of the people but at the end he gets a family. i think the boy wanted to be his friend because i think he was hoping he would be his pet. at the beginning he was really low now at the end he is really high in the families eyes. i think i doesn’t affect the story much it’s just like at the beginning no one wanted him or liked him and at the end a family wanted him and gave him love and a home.

” wow i have a nice family, they all moved in that day.”

Philosophy

i think he thinks his life is like one big nightmare because nothing he did went right at first, i think i based this on because he just was walking around no where to go and no where to stay with the fact that no one wanted him to be there pet or part of their family. these choices don’t really affect him really. like i said before at first it was like a nightmare then it change because he found a home and a family. i guess the family really wanted a pet and i guess when they found him they were really happy.

“They became forever family.”

 

Reading Task

Title: Charles

Author: Shirley Jackson

 

1st fact

I think Laurie, Charles and the mum i think or narrator are the main characters. Laurie’s personality is like he gossips about what Charles does everyday that is bad. Charles is a trouble maker and loves to not corporate. the mum or narrator is like a nervous and sensitive type.

Laurie: “; Charles yelled during story hour and hit a boy in the stomach and made him cry.; Charles yelled during story hour and hit a boy in the stomach and made him cry.”

Charles: “Look at my thumb. Gee, you’re dumb.”

Mum/Narrator: “bad grammar, and this Charles boy sounds like such a bad influence.”

 

2nd Fact

I guess that Laurie wants to be cool because I think he wants to copy Charles because he is cool.

Charles:  “He yelled so much they sent a boy in from first grade to tell the teacher she had to make Charles keep quiet, and so Charles had to stay after school. And so all the children stayed to watch him.”

that is want he wants I think.

 

3rd Fact

well… I think he encountered just going to school for the first time and not being with his parents for a whole day for the whole year. because in the 1st paragraph it talks about how Laurie leaves for school with his next door neighbour.

“I watched him go off the first morning with the older girl next door.”

 

4th Fact

I learnt that Charles was basically the opposite personality to everyone mentioned in the story. I also learned that the main message ws I think to be your self because I guess he wanted to copy the other guy Charles.

“You know what Charles did today?”

5th Fact

the setting was at school and his home I think the author chose those settings because their your everyday places you  go unless you go to work. I think he created this type of world because like I said before I think the author chose this world is because that’s our/everyone’s natural environment.

“The day my son Laurie started school he abandoned corduroy overalls.”

Reading Task

Title: Joseph Bryant

Author: Anneke

 

Themes are abstract nouns

The feelings and idea of the story really helped me understand the main idea/concept of the story. I think the theme to this story was love, loss and maybe hope.

The first theme is love. In the story a boy and a girl are in love or each others crash. They share each others pencils and markers and sometimes when the teacher isn’t looking the would hold hands but while he in hospital and didn’t make it she would always have his love with her.

The second theme was loss. I thought loss because the girl in the story she lost her best friend and her sweetheart. She also stastes at the end that…. “And Joseph Bryant, my fifth grade sweetheart,  is the reason why I know the true definition of love.”

And the final theme is hope. because when they were in hospital they hoped he would get better even though he was getting worse. The girl was also hoping that she would get her kiss.

“I thought Joseph was going to kiss me or tell me that he wanted me to be his girlfriend, I remember having butterflies in my stomach and wondering what my mother would say if I had to tell her that I got myself a boyfriend.”

Themes are important human issues

I think after the story the author wanted us to think about what is the main message and how it would feel like if you lost someone you loved. I personally think the main message was have faith in your self because I think he kept saying I will stay alive. and it would feel terrible if you lost someone you loved because you will never see them again. So that is what I think the main message and how it will feel to lose someone is.

Stories apply to many readers

To people that have experienced loss to someone they loved or someone they knew then this story can bring back lots of sad and unhappy memories and to people that have not experienced loss this story can really make you think about what it would feel like and makes you very emotional.

Events represents ideas

I the hole text has a decant amount of figurative speech. like in the first paragraph has like 95% of just figurative speech. here is the first paragraph and you see for your self.  

“Love is a dumb and dangerous word. People misuse the word more than any other in the dictionary. I LOVE this apple, don’t you? or I just LOVE this shirt! but do they actually mean it? Most people don’t understand the actual definition of love. I do, which is why it frustrates me so much when people say that they love each other when they don’t. I know for a fact they don’t. And don’t even get me started when people say they are  in love with someone else. That phrase is destroyed by couples that say how they are in love with someone after a month of texting. They don’t and never will understand the true meaning of love.”

Experience evolves in patterns

In this story the repeating patterns a for depression. for example…

“Three years went by. Three painful years of visiting Joseph every single day in the hospital. Well, almost everyday; sometimes he was too sick for me to visit.”

“What is cancer? and immediately she started crying.”

They are 2 examples for the repeating patterns of depression.

Fiction is instructional

In this text the author doesn’t say what the themes are so you have guess what they are and as I said before the main themes are love, loss and hope. (you can find the information about them in the Themes are abstract nouns paragraph) And in the story they wanted to change joseph so he would live and get rid of his cancer so he can be a normal boy again.

Little ania

 

Read like a writer

Ideas

This text was about a girl called ania and how different she is and because her mum wants her to change and because of that she gets sick and at one stage doctors say she will die but an old man comes to her rescue her and makes her better. it was very clear and great story

Little Ania was a very unusual little girl. First of all, she started out looking different.

 

Organization

I thought it was structured very well everything made since in its order and it wasn’t like she was talking about one thing and then the next thing she just explained it them when one to the next.

Ania said her mother over and over. ]Why do you have to be so difficult!

 

Voice

with the voice I could defiantly tell that she used a lot emotion because like ania was always getting teased on and that she said her self she was going to die is very sad.

At school the other kids teased her about her great, wiry mop of black hair. I’m surprised you don’t have birds nesting in your hair!

 

Word Choice

in this text it used more tier 2 and tier 1 language and it wasn’t tier 3 because doesn’t say very hard or challenging words they were more like golden and every day words

 Please stop being so absurd!

 

Sentence Fluency

all the sentences were in the right place because it wasn’t like it was talking about her at school then at the hospital then at school again it was like every sentence was where it was supposed to be.

By the time she was seven years old she was so sick that she ended up in the hospital.

 

Conventions 

Everything was spelled correct with the punctuation he manly used full stops, quotation marks and explanation marks and grammar was really spot on.

“But I don’t want to eat meat and fish and vegetables!”
