BELL WORK:
Want to know something INSANE?
27 full days together left! Does that stress you out? That stresses me out!
It also makes me sad.
WAAAAAAAAAAAAT? There is no time to slack my lovely little nose miners.
Let’s get on this and remember, I AM HERE TO SUPPORT YOU!

Period 4: ENGLISH 20
Chapter 2:
2. Prediction: How do you think the main character knows the stranger in the coffee shop? Did she overreact? What do you think she is afraid of?

We will now read Chapter 3
Chapter 3

1. What do you think could have stood out to the main character when she overheard the conversation between the mom and child? Specifically the line that says; “Maybe they like being nice and not hurting people, honey. You know, like we do.”

2. Why do you think she feels safe with the elephants close by?

ACTIVITY:
I would like you all to get a picture of what you think Leia looks like. Hand in your screen shot to Google Classroom and I will print and we will see how our ‘idea of what she looks like’ evolves and changes.

Ideas for FINAL FIX ME projects.
Don’t stress these are not due till after the book is done but if you want to start thinking about it now… go ahead!

Additional PROJECT ideas:

  1. Describe at least one significant problem Leia faces and discuss how he dealt with that problem. Use details from the story to support your ideas.2. Make up 5 interview questions for Leia, along with choosing 3 to answer how you think SHE would respond.3. Draw a map of the zoo the depicts how Leia feels about each of the places.4. Tell what happened before the story began.

    5. Write a different ending for the story.

    6. Where do you think each of the characters will be in 5, 15, 25 years?

    7. Your character calls into a radio show for advice. Choose which show your character would call in to and then create the conversation he or she would have with the radio advice giver.

    8. Think about all the kinds of mementos you would put in a scrapbook for your character, cutting out pictures from magazines or drawing the mementos he or she would have in a scrapbook.

    9. Write an opinion column like those that appear on the editorial page of the newspaper. Choose a theme or topic from the novel you just read and write the column from the point of view of one of the characters.
