In my opinion being unselfish is better than being selfish. Being selfish can make you be bullied and make you feel depressed, but if you are unselfish there will be friends coming to you and you will have a great school day.
In a book called ‘Iqbal’ there is a Pakistan boy called Iqbal. He was sold when he was a baby, and his parents got $12 for working in a carpet factory for 6years. He was sold to a carpet factory. His parents sold him but he didn’t regret his parents. When he was free he spent his time to speeches about freedom. This shows that his tome at the carpet factory was so hard for a young child. Iqbal wasn’t selfish he didn’t thought like this ‘I spent my life making carpets so you also need to work hard like this.’ He didn’t have parents but he knew about unselfish.
The factory people hated that Iqbal delivering his speech about freedom, so the factory people planed to kill Iqbal. Finally, Iqbal was killed by the factory people but Iqbal was remembered as a brave boy. He didn’t knew he was going to be killed but he tried his best talking about freedom and even though he didn’t know that, he was so brave to speech about freedom.
Being selfish can make you bullied and being unselfish can make people come to you and make people smile. This shows that Iqbal was really brave and unselfish.
In my opinion being friends with somebody is better than bullying friends. If somebody is not good at something you need to teach not bully. Don’t make them lonely, just be friends with them.
In a book called ‘The year of the boar and Jackie Robinson,’ the main character called Shirley, is from China. She hasn’t learned English before and she also hasn’t been in America. When she went to America everything was amazing. She didn’t know English so she didn’t have friends but she wasn’t bullied. That means that speaking is really important. But you don’t need to bully somebody if somebody is not good at speaking.
Shirley made her friends by sharing and caring. She shared her umbrella with Emily. And Shirley couldn’t wait to play with her friends. So sharing is important as friends.
Shirley was good at baseball so she was called as ‘Jackie Robinson.’ She really respected him and she got a huge golden key from Jackie Robinson. That would have been better than getting by another person. Because she respected him.
Shirley efforted and didn’t give up. Ignore what somebody did to you and just don’t give up and try your best. If you were lonely just try your best as if you were lonely. And if you have friends don’t be bossy because somehow you can be lonely too.
I prefer to not win by helping others. Winning is not everything. Helping others, believing, giving thanks, real learning and important meaning is much more important than winning. Even though you could win that isn’t more important than helping.
In the story called ‘The race’, the character Todd and Brett had a boat race. Brett didn’t want to lose to anybody because he didn’t know about helping, but Todd knew what was helping and he also knew winning isn’t everything. Everyone will think about I will win or I am going to win like Brett but , Todd wasn’t like everyone. Because of Todd’s competitive feelings, they were winning and other people were also trying to beat Todd and Brett. But one child had troubles, and started crying. Todd just saw that and tried to help the boy but Brett hated this idea strongly. Brett thought he was crazy. Why Todd wanted to help him was because he know the feeling when he help others.
Brett couldn’t make Todd go and help so he helped the boy . When they were helping the boy, the other people were coming. Brett was so angry now he was losing. When they helped the little boy, Brett felt different. This is like helping their grandparents or giving money to poor people. If you think ‘That is mine, I don’t wan’t to give it, I’m going to eat ice cream.’ and give money to poor people, it doesn’t feel anything like you did something great, but, if you think ‘Okay I need to share,’ and share money with poor people it feels different. That means that Brett knew friendship was more important than winning.
When Todd and Brett helped the boy the other people were winning. Brett was really angry and the boy thanks the two boys they even though they didn’t win but it wasn’t that bad. When you fell this feeling you want to feel this again and again and again and again. So, Todd helped the boy and Brett didn’t know this feeling so he didn’t wanted to help the boy.
As you can see winning is not everything, winning can be a great experience but helping will make you happier than winning.
When Charlie went to the chocolate factory Grandpa Joe was singing, Charlie was jumping around, Mr and Mrs Bucket were smiling for the first time, and the 3 old ones were gripping. Mr. Wonka said to Charlie do you want to ride the glass elevator. The glass elevator went higher and higher they could the the ocean and they could see other countries. There was a problem, Mr. Wonka said to Charlie press the button quickly but it was too late.
About Mr. Wonka. I think Mr. Wonka has wild plans. he doesn’t no what is happening and saying if it’s Charlie’s fault.
A connection about this book is that also my Grandmother is always positive and also grandpa Joe is also positive too.
A theme about this book is that don’t be so quick and make your self calm.
BFG drank the frobscotte and showed what happened The BFG was flying. Sophie saw that and said I want to try it. So she drank the frobscottle and also flew. They enjoyed the happiness and the BFG grabbed his dream catching netand sid I need to go to catch some more dreams. Do you want to go together? But Sophie said no thanks because of the other giants.But I think the BFG wanted to go with Sophie The BFG said Why don’t you hide in my pocket?
A connection about this book is that it’s not really the same but when I was young I tried to go inside the carrier. I was young but I couldn’t go inside.
About the BFG. The bFG is really kind and he really likes to do something with someone and he hates being alone.
The theme about this book is that be kind to everyone doesn’t matter what they did to you and be a nice friend.
The Bloodbottler ate the snozzcumber because the bloodbottler ate only meats like human beans he spat the snozzcumber. Sophie was behind the snozzcumber and she was holding the snozzcumber and she was in the bloodbottlers mouth, because the bloodbottler spat Sophie got out of his mouth. The bloodbotller was so angry he just got out of the BFGs cave. When the bloodbottler was gone the BFG quickly closed the door and whispered “Sophie, Sophie where are you Sophie?” Sophie was under the black cloak and explained to him what happened. He heard that and cleaning her. By now Sophie was so thirsty. Sophie said can I have some water but the BFG didn’t know what water is. Sophie asked what do you drink? The BFG said I drink ‘frobscottle’. The BFG held something like water, but this ‘frobscottle was so weird. The bubbles were going downwards.
The BFG thinks all around the world is like the ‘BFG world’ and I think he don’t have consideration. The BFG has so many emotion.
A connection about this book there is a resemblance between me and Sophie.me and Sophie where glasses and Sophie has lots of curious. I don’t know if my mom or my dad has curious but me and my brother has lots of curious. my brother has more curious more than me.
After the BFG talked about the ‘Snozzcumber’, a tremendous noise came from outside. The noise came again and somebody shouted “Runt! s you there, Runt? I is hearing you jabbeling! Who is you jabbbeling to Runt?” The BFG was so scared. and shouted “It is the ‘Bloodbottler’!” Sophie was behind the ‘Snozzcumber.’ The creature came in. The Bloodbottler was a gruesome sight. His skin was reddish-brown, his full face was round and squashy, his lips were like 2 gigantic purple frankfurters lying one on top of the other.
About the Bloodbottler:
The bloodbottler is really ‘disgusting’ He don’t even brush his teeth and I think he is really mean. Because he just grabbed the BFG’s arm.
A connection about this book is that I think the bloodbottler’s personality is the same as my brother’s personality. He always call me what I hate.
During baking the banana bread, I learned 3 things. The first thing I learned was we have to concentrate with the temperature of the oven. The second thing I learned was we have to be sure with the material. (baking powder, baking soda)And the last thing I learned was you have to make sure you put the wright fraction. If you need 1/5 salt but you put 1/2 salt it will be really salty.
The BFG said I was blowing dreams. Sophie was surprised.He said I can hear all sounds. I can also hear plants talking. Sophie didn’t know plants were talking.He said also cattlepiddlers(?) were talking. Sophie said what do they say? and the BFG said they are arguing about who is going to be the prettiest butterfly. Sophie just said Is there any dreams floating here? and the BFG said not here but I have it in my bottles. He said there is special dreams that don’t come to the Giant Country so I have to catch it. Sophie said how do you catch it? The same as you catch a butterfly. With a net.
I think Sophie has really many curious. I will understand I will ask questions like that if I was Sophie but I won’t ask that much question I think she is so curious.
I have a connection to this book. That I dreamed about catching dreams. I had a net in my hand and was catching circle shaped dream. It was sparkling and it was like a bubble.
The BFG caught Sophie and came to his house he didn’t eat Sophie but he kept looking Sophie. Sophie and the BFG talked and talked and Sophie said let me out of here. Then the BFG opened his giant rock door and showed the other giants. the BFG said if you go there and the giants see you the giant will run to you and eat you. Sophie said what are they doing and the BFG said nothing Sophie thought about her self and asked are they also eating human the BFG said lots of humans and said they go all around the world and eat human beans. Sophie was telling the BFG about her orphanage. the BFG heard that story and showed his giant tears. Then they didn’t have any chat. Then Sophie softly asked can I ask you something then the BFG said what? Sophie asked what were you doing at our village? the BFG said Ah HA! and continued saying I was blowing dreams.
about the BFG
the BFG is a kind Giant. He didn’t eat Sophie and he showed his tears when Sophie told about her orphanage. He has showed his tears. I think the BFG is really pure.
