Chapters 4,5&6

Hi Fellow Book Club Members!

It was very exciting to read all your comments from the first 3 Chapters. I hope you are enjoying Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban so far! Make sure you take time to read other people’s comments and feel free to comment again if you’d like! Maybe you want to ask a question or point something out. Let us know if you are reading the book alone or with a family member or friend, or where you are doing most of your reading. I think it’s so cool that we can all be in different locations and still be connected! Also-if you are reading any other books let us know…maybe you can recommend a good summer read to a friend, teacher or principal 😉

I’ll start us off on this week’s comment thread.

For me a wondering is a little different because I’ve read the series so many times that I’m not wondering what happens since I already know! I’m wondering how J.K. Rowling got her ideas. Did she work alone? Did she create a list of ideas as they came to her? How did she keep track of everything so all the details were consistent throughout the series? I wonder if she re-reads the series or maybe she doesn’t need to?! I wonder if any of the characters are based on her at all? So many wonderings…I could think about this for hours! Maybe you are wondering some of the same things!

Happy Reading 📖 Chat with you soon!

Until next time ⚡️

Chapters 1,2&3

Hello my little Summer readers!!!

I hope you’ve all been finding time to read Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and are ready to make some comments!

I’ll start us off!!

My favourite part of re-reading the book so far is the feeling I get every time I pick up a Harry Potter book! It’s so exciting…even though I know what happens! I think each time I read the series I find something new . The magic of J.K. Rowling’s words just never gets old!

Please comment by July 10 and read chapters 4,5&6 by a July 14 ⚡️

Until next time,

Danielle

L.W.O.S.-Last Week of School!

Seems strange to say that this is the last official post of the school year!!!!…Well unless you are participating in our Summer Book Club and reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban with us!! Communicating through the blog and Instagram will be an exciting way to remain connected. Just a little FYI-the 3rd instalment of the Harry Potter series is quite a bit longer than the first two AND there are slightly ‘darker’ characters. If you are not interested in reading Harry Potter with us and would rather read something else please let me know what you’ve decided to read. You can still pop by the book chat and see if anyone else has read the book(s) you are reading and maybe give a recommendation! On that note…We are starting to read right away so if you need to…please grab a copy of The Prisoner of Azkaban and be ready for our Room 123 Summer Book Club!

*On this last week of school we will have many things to finish up and clean up. Here is a quick rundown of the week…

-Monday (26): Last rehearsal for our Robert Munsch Reader’s Theatre

-Tuesday (27): Reader’s Theatre Presentations, Grade 6 Farewell (p.m.), report cards go home

-Wednesday (28): Final Math group with 122

-Thursday (29): Meet the Teacher 1:10 (students only) & Awards Day Assembly 2:30

-Friday (30): Happy Birthday Canada ‘parade’ 11:00, dismissal 11:30

Throughout the week we will be taking work home so it isn’t all being sent home on Friday!

*I hope that all of you who were able to join us for our Canada 150 celebration last Wednesday enjoyed yourselves. It was wonderful to see so many families and share what we have learned about Indigenous Languages and Culture as well as Residential Schools and Treaties.

I love the idea of the Heart Garden to symbolize Truth and Reconciliation. Beautiful and thoughtful messages were displayed as families planted as a community.

*If you were at the school that night I hope you had a chance to take a look at our self portraits. I think they turned out great!!!

*I found this photo online the other day and feel like it is a nice end of year…advice…teachable moment type of thing!

Have a great summer everyone! Thank you so much for following the blog and letting me try something new.

*If you are joining the book club…we’ll chat soon 😉

Until next time,

Danielle

and Hudson!
