Dear Anyone who dares to read this letter...Just Joking! :-)
I am reading an excelent book called Swindle by Gordan Korman. It is a book for readers with quick problem solving skills and for courageous, adventurous and risky people.
When I was reading, I used thinking strategies to help me understand the book better and to help me get thinking about the book. One of my fave strategies is prediction. I used prediction in this book the most. Like when I predicted that S. Wendell Palomino (a.k.a. Swindle) talks Griffin into selling a rare Babe Ruth baseball card for only $120 when he could have gotten it for much more because earlyer in the book it said that Swindle liked to lie, cheat and gamble, that mean green man. That prediction was niether contridicted nor confirmed because Swindle claims that he had a different Babe Ruthe card that was worth more than the one Griffin sold to him. I also predicted that even though Griffin did not appreciate his dads inventions, he would still use it because in the book it says he wants his parents to be happy, so that every one can get enough sleep and because Griffin wants a better life.
I learned how to Note Detail this week. I tryed it. it seemed like a solid strategy. I noted that Griffin likes to write his feelings because it lets him feel less stressed. I also noted that Ben likes to wonder. At one point Griffin gave Ben $60 dollars, but Ben did not know why. So he asked Griffin. Now if it was me out there I would take the money witha simple "Thanks". But Ben wants to know whatever he can.
I hope you liked my Blog this week. Don't forget to think while you read! Keep reading and you will do amazing things.
