Literary Essay

           In the book eleven Rachel had to wear a raggedy old sweater that wasn’t hers. When Ms Price gave her the sweater Rachel said, ” Ummm… That’s not, not, not mine.” Of course  Ms.Price didn’t believe her with her small muttering voice. This shows that because Rachel didn’t stand up for herself enough, she had to wear the disgusting red sweater in front of her whole class.When Ms.Price found out the sweater wasn’t hers she acted like everything was okay, and Rachel still didn’t say anything  to stand up for herself.

Teamwork is even harder when it comes to standing up for yourself. You have to persuade your teammate when you are working together. Even though teamwork makes it harder for you to stand up for yourself; in the story The Race Todd did it. Brett and him was going to win the boat race, but behind them a little boy’s boat was sinking; Todd wanted to save him but Brett wanted to win. That’s when Todd spoke up for himself in a strong and clear way. Soon enough Brett agreed to him and they went to save the little boy.

Eleven and The Race both show that standing up for yourself will help you. Rachel ( In Eleven) had to wear the sweater that wasn’t hers and didn’t get her way like Todd. That is because Rachel didn’t stand up for herself enough on the other hand Todd did, by standing up for himself.

Standing up for yourself will help you like how Todd helped the little boy. He persuaded Brett unlike Rachel because he stood up for himself and got what he wanted. This is why standing up for yourself will help you.

 

Litary essay #1

Don’t give up instead, believe in yourself. When you’re not good at something, some people think you shouldn’t do it so you won’t embarrass yourself in front of everyone. When you’re not good at something you shouldn’t give up. You should practice it to become better. Imagine you’re taking a test on the thing you’re not good at, then you’ll have to do it. Instead of standing there in the test, embarrassing yourself, you can practice beforehand and actually do something nice up there. Like Lupe in the story The Marble Champ.

In the text Lupe was never good at any sports but was she was amazing at academics. She even said to herself, “I’ll never be good at any sports, I wish I could win something(In sports) anything even marbles!” This showed that Lupe isn’t confident in herself with sports, she even admits that herself. Lupe however, really wants to win something even when she said the word marbles. She decided she wasn’t going to give up and was going to win at something and that thing was marbles.

When Lupe was practicing marbles the narrator described her as: “her face was red, her palms were sweaty but she was not giving up she kept improving her thumb muscle,” Lupe eventually bet her brother in a game of marbles which means all her hard work was paying of. In other words, Lupe was determined to win something and didn’t give up, which made her better at the sports marbles.

At the end of the story Lupe won the Marble race. In the world many people do great things by not giving up and believing in themselves like Lupe. Trying to imagine a world without Disney is almost impossible yet there were times where he failed and picked himself up and tried again. Lupe didn’t give up too and achieved her goal of becoming The marble champ.

 

Wings of Fire: The Lost Heir

In the prophecy the 5 dragonets will end the dragon war by choosing the next heir of the Sand kingdom. Tsunami was one of them, the Sea wing, they can breath underwater and light up their wings and tails to talk Auquatic which was a underwater language. Since Tsunami was raised in the Talons of peace so they could fulfill they never taught her this language.

Queen Scarlet the sky kingdom Queen capture the Dragonets, but they escaped and now they’re looking for the sea kingdom after they found out Tsunami was the missing princess so they could have shelter from the sky wing guards who are looking for them.

When Tsunami went for a dive in the sea water she spotted someone it was another Sea wing! He was the first Sea wing she has ever seen but since she didn’t know how to use the underwater language Tsunami went out of the water to talk to him. The Sea Wing introduced himself and told Tsunami that he was called Riptide and he quickly sent she and her friends to the Sea wing palace after he discovered that Tsunami was the missing princess. When Tsunami reunited she learned that she had a little sister Anemone.

Tsunami’s mother, Queen Coral welcomes her with an opened wing, but a mysterious assassin has been killing the Queen’s heirs for years and Tsunami is in their list. They already killed one of the newly hatched dragonets so theres only one more egg left and Tsunami volunteered to watch over it. She gave the egg to her friend Sunny to take care of since she’s a Sand wing and they can produce heat foe the egg. When Tsunami went over to her friend’s chamber she found them locked up and treated as prisoners so she managed to persuade the guards to give the key to her and unlocked her friends. After that, she realized that maybe her mother gave them orders to lock her friends up so she formed a plan to see if real.

Queen Coral’s first daughter challenged her mother to the throne and almost kill Queen Coral so the Tsunami’s friend think that her mom sent the assassin to kill her off springs. Tsunami however Tsunami thinks it’s her mom’s brother Shark that did it.

Tsunami’s plan was happening ,in dinner she confronted to her in front of Queen blister and her subjects that she saw her friends starve, chained up and much more. When the guards said that it was Queen Coral who ordered them to do that in Auqatic Coral said Silence, Riptide taught her that word so she knew her mother ordered them to do so.

Then on the dinner table, Queen Blister mentioned how was the secret weapon going and Tsunami tagged along with them to see what it was….

CHARACTER

Tsunami is a Sea Wing that lived under a cave for years in the Talons of Peace for the war to end and fulfilling the prophecy they stole her egg from Queen Coral. Sea Wings can breath underwater and swim fast, however to Tsunami swimming wasn’t her strength and breathing in sea water was new to her, since she’s been raised in a cave.

CONNECTION

Sometimes Tsunami wants others to listen to her but they don’t which really ticks her off which is something I feel when my brother doesn’t listen to me.

THEME

I think the theme is

‘Do what’s most comfortable to you’

 

 

The Wide Window: A series of unfortunate events.

SUMMARY

After Violet Baudelarie , Klaus Baudelarie and Sunny Baudelarie’s parents death they went to live with their uncle Count Olaf however he didn’t care for the children all he wanted was their money. When Violet is older than 18 she would take her parent money that they left for her. Count Olaf wants this money, the children however captured him but he escaped and vowed that he would get their money. After Count Olaf escaped they were sent to live with another person but he got killed by Count Olaf so they decided to live with their Aunt Josephine who they were told was scared of Lake Lachrymose some people say its because her husband was eaten by the Leaches on a boat in Lake Lachrymose

When the kids went to meet their new guardian at first her house seemed to look normal until they got a closer look. The house was attached to a hill by thin metal stilts, and with one move wrong it seemed as if the house was going to fall into its depths. Mr. Poe went to give the kids a peppermint present before handing them to their new guardian, but he didn’t know that they were allergic to them.

Aunt Josephine was giving them a tour of their new home and so far Aunt Josephine appeared to be afraid for every thing from the welcome mat to the radiator which she said to not turn on or it might explode. Aunt Josephine also love grammar and assumed the children liked that too and the presents she gave the, but they didn’t and pretended to like it.

Aunt Josephine then took them to the super market where they met a man called Captain Sham, but of course he was Count Olaf in disguise the three kids knew that and tried to warn Aunt Josephine but  she didn’t believe them. Later on ‘Captain Sham’ Called Aunt Josephine in private, when the kids came back they found a note on the table saying something like, I Aunt Josephine has suicided and now hand you over to Captain Sham. In the note was a lot of grammar mistakes which seemed a little weird because Aunt Josephine loved grammar.

After Mr.Poe discovered the news he arranged a Lunch where Captain Sham would sign the contract to become the 3 kids guardian, on the table the kids had to think of a plan Violet tied her hair up in a ribbon to keep it out of her eyes which meant she was concentrating really hard think she had an idea she gave each of her siblings a peppermint and told them to eat it to buy more time. The allergy effect came and Mr Poe allowed the kids to go home and then they would pick them up when they feel better.At house Klaus discovered something the grammar mistakes spelled out a word Curled cave then they realized maybe Aunt Josephine was still alive but was hiding in Curled cave.

Since it was an emergency they stole a sails boat to go to Curled Cave and Aunt Josephine was there. She told them in the phone call, Captain Sham told her that he really was Count Olaf and told her to write a letter handing the kids to him. Aunt Josephine was too afraid of him so she wrote the note and threw a stool out of the window then escaped.

Now the kids have prof that Captain Sham it really Count Olaf all they need to do is get back on the island safely with Aunt Josephine. The problem is in Lake Lachrymose was a lot of hungry Leeches so to get to the island safely was a problem, when they went on they boat the Leeches were bumping against the boat and formed a hole where water filled in the boat and some Leeches swam inside.

Just when all hope was  lost, Captain Sham came and rescued them but since Aunt Josephine could prove that Captain Sham was really Count Olaf he threw her over board in to the Lake where the Leeches ate her up.

When they arrived at the island Mr.Poe was waiting for them to be handed to Captain Sham. When the older kids Klaus and Violet were trying to reason with him that he really was Count Olaf. Sunny was looking at Captain Sham’s peg leg where Count Olaf’s tattoo was and with a bite the Peg leg fell off to reveal that Captain Sham was really Count Olaf. Before Mr Poe was going to arrest him he ran. The horrible man was going to from another plan to steal the Baudelarie orphan’s fortune.

CHARACTER

Sunny is one of the Baudelarie orphan, her hobby is biting, she likes to bite, and chew on anything her sharp teeth can break. Like her older siblings Sunny is allergic to peppermint, if she eats them she’ll get red patches all over her skin and have a hanging tongue outside of her mouth. Sunny also can’t stand rattles and the horrible noises they make annoys her. Even though Sunny is still quite small and dose not speak fluent english her sister and brother can always understand her and Sunny can understand them too. When she never wants to see something again she also hides it under her bed, for example,  she once had a rock which she could never be able to chew open so she hid it under her bed to never be reminded of it again.

CONECTION

I know that in this world there are a lot of orphans that are having the same feeling as how Klaus, Violet, and Sunny are experiencing.

Confessions of a so-called Middle Child

Charlie Cooper is a girl that got expelled from her old school, she had been forced to read some ‘dumb books’ and her sister Pen and brother Felix got to play outside. Charlie knew where she was going to the mental health plan where Dr.scales wanted Charlie to explain her feelings. Charlie hated to go there and today she got the opportunity to never go back. Dr.Scales quickly explained to her that if she made friends with the biggest loser in school she would never need to came back to meet him. The reason why Charlie got expelled was because of Ashley set her sights on her best friend Roxy so she decided that she would put some laxative in her food but she accidentally put it in the cafeteria food. Charlie however would never tell Dr.scales about Ashley because then she would have to come to Dr.Scales twice a week.

In her new school Charlie have made 2 friends Trixie and Babs, Babs is like a little puppy without Trixie she would be lost. Pen, Charlie’s sister became popular like in their last school, and always did good stuff like helping the bullied. Thats when Charlie decided that she would try to stand up for Marta the most bullied girl in the school so she would never ever have to go back to Dr.Scale. Trixie is trying out for the gymnastics team but many other students are also trying out for it. So far Charlie had a good start 0 enemies.

CHARATER

Trixie is the so-called popular girl in the school thats fighting for the spot in the gymnastics team because she wants her face on a cereal box for amazing gymnastic of the uneven bars.

CONECTION

Just like Charlie I’m also the middle child, this also reminds me of another book where a boy got expelled from his own school and had to get a new and fresh start at his new school, like how Charlie got expelled.

The Wide Window

SUMMARY

After Violet, Klaus and Sunny’s parents death they went to live with their uncle Count Olaf however he didn’t care for the children all he wanted was their money. When Violet is older than 18 she would take her parent money that they left for her. Count Olaf wants this money, the children however captured him but he escaped and vowed that he would get their money. After Count Olaf escaped they were sent to live with another person but he got killed by Count Olaf so they decided to live with their Aunt Josephine who they were told was scared of Lake Lachrymose some people say its because her husband drowned on a boat in Lake Lachrymose

Aunt Josephine also love grammar and assumed the children liked that too and the presents she gave the, but they didn’t and pretended to like it.

 

CHARACTER

Aunt Josephine is almost scared of everything but the strange thing is that she doesn’t seem to mind that the house is holding up by thin skinny metal legs that hangs over the cliff. Also the fact that she’s scared of Lake Lachrymose still remains a mystery.

CONNECTION

Sometimes when someone gives a present I don’t enjoy I would also pretend to like it to be polite and so I don’t hurt their feelings.

CHARACTER:

Violet is the oldest child of the three kids, she’s an amazing inventor. Whenever she has a idea she would always put her hair up in a ribbon so her hair won’t distract her.

CONECTION

This reminds me of another book called Harry potter because both Harry and The three kids had terrible guardians who look after them, that doesn’t really care much about the kids.
