I’m going out of my mind from reading “Out Of My Mind”

Over term 4 we have been reading “Out Of My Mind” as our read Aloud book.
As a class we had discussions on what we thought was going to happen next and why we thought something happened.
My opinion: this book isn’t like any other book. It intrigues the reader and it makes you want to read more when you get around the climax. I really want this book to have a whole series ahead of it.
I would recommend this book for year fours and above because younger than year fours might not be able to understand the words like empathy or sympathy.

Empathy VS sympathy.
Have you ever wondered when you read a book and they say that someone gave empathy/sympathy to another character? Well the book we’re reading in class did.

My Amazing Learning From Week 3 Term 4

I’ve been in the middle of writing a book on the app book creator. I’ve been doing this on our Monday free writing session. I think my book is coming along really well. I have used a narrative set out but with the main character telling the story. Here’s a sneak peek of my narrative.
