Room 21: Will Marty Be Able To Keep His Secret?
During the month of November we finished the book Shiloh written by Phyllis Raynolds Naylor. The book is about a beagle named Shiloh who is found wandering around by a boy named Marty. Judd Travers owns Shiloh, but he doesn’t treat him right. He even names his dogs by numbers and hurts them if they don’t do something right. Marty secretly hides Shiloh for weeks and decides to not give him back. Will Marty be able to keep his secret and keep Shiloh? You will have to read to find out!
After finishing the book, we had a pajama and stuffy day. We set up our chairs like a movie theatre and watched the Shiloh movie in our classroom. We found a lot of similarities and differences between the book and the movie. Overall we really enjoyed watching the movie because the characters came to life! Here are some thoughts from the students in Room 21:
