Write a book review! Tell everyone about your reading.

Hello Everyone!  I hope you are having a fabulous break.  I am starting my second book.  I love having so much time to read.  Coming soon is my review of Auggie and Me by R.J. Palacio (Thanks for the book Double K!) The following is some tips from on how to write a book review.  I can’t wait to learn about what you have been reading.

Write a Review

Not sure what to say? Keep these tips in mind:

Be honest: Give your review personality and remember that kids want to know what you REALLY think.

Be detailed: Explain exactly what you liked or didn’t. Was it a story you couldn’t put down? Were the characters just like people you know? What made it special?

Be accurate: Be sure to get the title, author, and character names right, plus double-check your spelling and grammar. Remember our editing rules for publishing.

DON’T spoil it: Please don’t give away the ending! Tell readers enough about the plot to hook them, but keep them hanging so that they want to read the book.

Dec. 5th Homework

If you are not done with your writing, then get it done tonight!  Have an adult check your piece, so that when I check it will quickly pass.  If you are a publisher, then you have optional homework to find a great youtube clip on scrapbooking.  If you don’t have your memoir book yet, there is a picture of Amaya’s blue one.

Excellent work today Know-it-alls.  Lots of work was finished.
