My book

The book I am reading is lost and found, it is about two little boys that are twin brothers.  The thing about these twins is that they don't like being twins.  They don't like people thinking of them as a whole, they want to be though of as one person and apparently they were also determined to be though of as one person. The twins would scheme their way out of school by having only one of them going to school at a time and because their twins people couldn't tell the difference between them, one day after another the twins would take turns alternating who went to school. Another scheme they came up with is they were going to the mall but they didn't want their friends to find out that they were twins so they had one of them wear his regular clothes and the other one wore his regular clothes too but he also put on glasses and a baseball cap so that if people seen them they wouldn't notice that they're twins. They were a good distance from their parents too because they also didn't want people to know that they were with their parents

Independent novel

Nothing has really happened in my independent novel yet. So far all it's been about is twins alternating turns going to school because they wanted to feel like one person instead of two

Thoughts on animal testing

No they should not all be treated the same because if a something unwanted is in you house then you kill it but when things are invited into your house then you have a responsibility to care for it 

No we should not test animals because if we wouldn't like if we were tested so why is it okay to test other living beings

42 reflection

Discrimination in my words is separating people from other people because of what they look like or what they sound like. Being different in jeneral. Discrimination still happens a lot today in our society but just in different ways. People might be discriminated because of a disability or because they way that they talk.

I have witnessed people have to go through discrimination. This kid wanted to play soccer with some kids but they didn't let him play because he wasn't the best at the game. The kid was really sad and he started crying because he really wanted to play but they wouldn't let him.

When is there dignity in silence?

the principle accuses you of something you didn't do. I would tell him that I didn't do it even if I did and I would keep telling him that I didn't do it and I would be interrupting him. If I would have just stood quiet he wouldn't have gotten that mad and sent me home if I would have just corroborated with him I would have stayed at school that day.

Blog thirteen:survival

  1. Why do you think certain items were ranked differently? Because some items were more important to survival then others were
  2. Why did you change your minds about the rankings? Because I was taking into consideration sanarios that would happen and that you needed certain supplies for 
  3. Did your team work together well enough to survive the Hunger Games? Explain. No because only one of us survived the games but we had good team work and we didn't argue 
  4. How did you overcome conflict and disagreements? We didn't have any 
  5. What would you improve on the next time to increase your chance of survival? Try to think more deeply about the items that I pick

Blog 11: thinking...

The Parts of the hunger-games that I find the most interesting is the fact that they pick two contestants from each district because usually is one representative for a town or something like that

 the parts of my independent reading book that I find the most interesting is that the main character Brian's mom is letting him fly to a different state to go see his dad by himself and he is only 14

The parts of the hunger games that bother me are when the brought in the muts because I think that it was a dumb way to try and bring the tributes together and to kill one of them off. I think that something els should have brought the tributes together and either Katniss or peeta kill Cato

The parts of my independent reading book that bother me are that the book is so predictable the pilot has a heart attack the plane crashes he has to survive there are obstacles you just know what's going to happen next

Blog 10 love

I think that Katniss is slowly getting feeling for peeta. She is starting to talk about kisses and how there both aware that they are kissing. She also keeps saying that she doesn't want peeta to die. But I also think that Katniss is trying to act like she loves him so that she'll get more supplies from the sponsors.

blog 9 survival

What survival means to is that you do anything to be able to stay alive and be happy as long as you have every thing that your need like water and food you are surviving.what survival means in the hunger games is that you have to do what you have to do in order for you to stay alive.

Blog 8 lying

Lying is not always wrong, lets say your friend were to ask you something about them like if they ask you if they are fat or ugly or something like that it would be okay to lie  to them so that you don't hurt their feelings. This strategy is seen in the hunger games when Katniss kisses peeta to make the Capitol happy

Blog two perspective

I'm standing in the crowd waiting for them to call the first name. Then suddenly I hear it "prim Everdeen" I get a feeling in my stomach and I feel like I'm about to cry i look at Katniss my older sister right away she's screaming and crying this feeling that I have in my stomach won't go away and then Katniss screams I volunteer I volunteer as tribute I start to cry and scream no because I don't want my sister to have to go to the games then suddenly I feel the strong arms of Katnisses friend gale grab me and take me away

Blog 4 Katniss and me

I think that Katniss is brave for volunteering for her sister because that says a lot about a person. I think that family always comes first and if your willing to die for your little sibling then you are a good person in my eyes. I think that Katniss is very skilled and that she could win the games she might not think it but she can.

Blog 7 HG chapters 16-1

i really liked these chapters because Katniss is finally trying to attack the career tributes.
I also really liked these chapters because of rue. She is really smart and nice and she knows how to survive and even though she's only 12 she still survived this long in the games.
Now that Katniss got the bow and arrows he chances of winning are very high and I actually think that she is going to win. I think that rue is going to be taken out by one of the careers because I don't think that Katniss would be strong enuff to kill rue.

Setting

the setting is important because the whole idea of the hunger games is death and they want other people to win the games instead of the career tributes every time so it might make the games more interesting 

If the hunger games were in a different setting then it might not be wasps that are on the branch it might be a different type of advanced weapon

Blog Five

Dear mr.snow I think that you are an abomination to this world. What kind of sick person does it take to take people from their family's lock them in an arena and brutality murder eachother for your entertainment. How would you feel if you were taken from your family at such a young age and be forced to go kill people. Yeah that's what I thought you wouldn't like it would you so stop making people go kill eachother for your entertainment and stop the hunger games.

Fashion

The outfits that we wear express what kind of person we are because if your a happy and up eat person your gonna wear a lot of colors and if your a quiet person that doesn't like to be noticed your gonna not wear a lot of colors. Clothes tell people weather your cool or lame.clothes have so much power in people's minds because people want to look good. We wear certain clothes because we think that they look nice or cool. The school tells us what clothes mean because if you wear a certain color it's considered gang related

Blog One: Hunger Games Intro.

In the Hunger Games i have mad respect for Katniss because she basically gave up her life to save her sister. It sends a strong message about family. I feel bad for the people in district 12 because I would hate to be poor and have to hunt illegally for food and to have to take care of my family at such a young age.
