Hank Zipzer 2
I am still reading HANK ZIPZER, NIAGRA FALLS, OR DOES IT? By: Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver. I’ve gotten up to at least 10; so far, the book is about his life. But he’s doing an essay. (Something he is really not good at)
This is the book where there is no idea what would happen next, but I’ve been trying to make predictions, like in the mid-beginning of the book, I predicted that he would have to write a report/do a project on Niagara Falls because the book title has “NIAGRA FALLS” in it. It turns out he has to write a report about “what you did over the summer”. Hank said that he got a paragraph, but it looked wrong, so he erased something, and he made a hole. He tried to fix it, it got so big, he could see his home desk. So since he wanted to see his friends, he said/lied to his dad that he wrote the 1/5 of the paper (the paragraph). I made another prediction; I predicted that since Hank knows what the key to his essay is, he would run back to home and remake it. But he didn’t he decided to make a model of what his essay is about. (Niagara Falls)
There is not much Inferring in this book, but I did make 1 so far. I inferred that since they went to a bowling alley owned by the bully’s father, so I questioned would they see the bully (they went there because Pop-Pop-Pete knows someone who works there)
Now since this is a book where you have a lot of questions of what would happen next! I questioned “Who is Fern”, well that’s the guy Pop-Pop-Pete knows at the bowling alley. And why did Hank put on his paper, “NIAGRA FALLS, OR DOES IT?” Why did he put the “or does it????” I made one more question, as said in the prediction category, about making a working Niagara Falls model, remember? But I questioned that how in the world would he make a working model with boats, moving water, and all of the stuff a water fall would have. Well he made the moving water out of a hose, pump, and tube, and the boat was made out of LEGO and had LEGO people in it.
I found a new word, Brim, but I tried to look up what it meant because it didn’t tell, but there was no answer. I’m guessing that it means the other brim too, the edge of something.
Well that’s all I have to say,
