Exposition— The Hobbit

I think the conflict so far on this book is “Man vs. Self”.

Because on page 3 it says that “Hobbits never have adventures or did anything unexpected.” But on page 4 it says”this is a story of how a hobbit had an adventure, and found himself doing and saying things altogether unexpected.” the hobbit also went to the adventure the following day…

I think this story is talking about the main character doing something he never done before… I had a similar experience too. although it’s a long time ago, but I still remember it clearly. When I was only 7 years old I had the first speech of my life. you can imagine how hard it was for a 7 years old kid to do something that they never done before.  So I practiced a lot and had so much pressure on waiting it. although I mess it up a little bit, but I started to love this kind of things with growth of ages. So I base on the conflict I wrote, I can predict that maybe the theme of this book is “Trying New Things”.

 

“The Monkey’s Paw” / “Genie Lamp”

This found poem was created with the words of William W. Jacobs. In the story, “The Monkey’s Paw”, my poem is explaining the theme and the conflict of the story: wishes, son dead, mutilated son…

I changed the font style of “wishes” into “wishes” is because the definition of wish is: feel or express a strong desire or hope for something that is not easily attainable; want something that cannot or probably will not happen. But in the story they got something they want, but at the same time they lose something even more important (200 pound and the death of his son).

“back to “normal””: It’s kind of normal after the falling action of the story: “The street lamp opposite the house shone flickeringly on a quiet and deserted road.” But their son died and I think the mood and nerve of the family will change.

For “show”: what I think about this story is that it’s a story talking about “fate ruled lives, interfere fate caused sadness.” So I think it is a “show” of “fate ruled lives, interfere fate caused sadness”, but I can’t find “show” in the story so I just add it. (I think it’s very important! So I changed it into different color.)

The background’s picture I chosen was “Genie Lamp”, because the people who had “Genie Lamp” also can wish for something they want.

For “fate ruled lives”, I think it’s the theme of the story! Because every plot in the story were based on “interfere fate caused sadness and fate ruled lives”.

My First Week Back to School

  • The best part of my first week at school was the “Amazing Race” because it helped me to learn more about my classmate and it was fun!

  • During the first week, I didn’t really enjoy in the new class, because I didn’t really make new friend 🙁 🙁 🙁 

  • During EAL time I want to focus on improving my vocabulary and speaking, because I am not very good at those and those two are very important in English.

  • I world like to share this article-https://newsela.com/read/eclipse-animals/id/33775 from Newsela, because it is talking about what will happen with animal when the Eclipse is coming. I like nature so I am interest about this and  Eclipses are very rare to see.
