Merging Storylines!

Sahville is wondering...

If you could put two stories together, which two stories would they be and why?


If you could talk to your book, or the author who wrote the book, what questions would you have?

(This is another question from Emma - she's on fire!!)

The Book or Movie Debate

Emma wants to know - "What is better - the movie or the book?"  Why?

Madison Wants to Know...

What are your reasons for loving books?

Capri Has Been Wondering...

Why DO people write?  What motivates us to write?

Persistence in Reading

A question from Emma...

If the book you started reading was one you didn't like, would you keep reading it (Habits of Mind - Persisting) and why or why not?

Here's One to Get Your Brains Ticking Over!

If you could take one character out of a book and put him, her - or it -in another book, what book would you choose and why?
How would they react to being in a different setting and a different plot??????

Books and Movies

If your favourite movie was a book would you still read it if it had less detail?  Explain why you think this?

A question from Timothy on Where and When...

Where and when do you read your Literature Circle books - and other books.  Do you have a favourite place to sit and read?

Why Should We Read Different Types of Books?

A question from Emma

One of the questions for this week is around reading as widely as possible.  Why is this important?  Is it important?  How would it help your learning?  Why should we try a different type of book than we usually read?
