Exciting to See Postings

Hi All,
It has been an exciting last week as I have seen so many of you posting on the blog. Great job!! The weather has turned now into much more winter-like days and it is a perfect time to curl up on the couch or your favourite comfortable spot and read a good book!  I think this weekend will bring some time for me to do just that.

I have a few more questions for everyone to comment on for this week.
Here they are:
1) Miggery Sow and the princess have entirely different lives. How do they differ? What connects them nevertheless?
2) Describe Despereaux and Roscuro. What is special about their names? What about them is different to other mice or rats, respectively? How is the "normal" mouse or rat supposed to behave?
3) Imagine you have broken a rule and have been banished from your community. What would you miss most? If it meant you could return to the community, would you say you were sorry, even if you felt you had done nothing wrong.

Looking forward to reading all of your wonderful responses.  Reminder that our meeting is November 21st at 10:00. If you have checked your book out of the library, I would suggest that you hang on to it until after our book club meeting.  Our next book, CatBoy should be able to be found in our school library, if you do not want to buy it or cannot find it in your local library.  I know they have purchased a few e- book copies.

See you on the blog:)!

A Year of Adventure

It is only the end of October and I feel like I have accomplished more this year than years past.  That also has led to not getting things done as quickly as I would like, lol!!!

This is going to be an exciting year in Book Club and we have an extraordinary line up of books for all of us to read and enjoy.

Our first meeting was the launch of learning new technology and our first book to read.  I loved meeting everyone and I am excited to get to know each one of you as we walk along our journey together this year.  My hope and prayer is that this year will bring us new friendships with a sense of community and that within our books we will learn about things that will help us to see Jesus in our lives a little clearer.

Our next book club meeting is Thursday, November 21st. We will meet in Blackboard Classroom and I will send the link the day before.  Hope everyone can join in for our discussions.

I will be posting questions in here each week for everyone to respond to.  The student who posts and comments the most will win a $10.00 Chapters Gift Card. The challenge will be to not only post your own answers, but to comment on the other student's posts.  I will take into account frequency of posting and also quality of posts and comments.

The first questions to answer are:
1) What is your most favourite book that you have ever read and what makes it your favourite?
2) What is your favourite character in Tale of Despereaux and why?  Please answer each question in a complete sentence and include 2 or more sentences.

I will be posting in here every few days, so keep checking back in and see more to chat about:)!  Till Next Time!!!!!
