Ladies and Gentlemen,
Today you will begin an Author Study. The author we will be reading is Carl Hiaasen. We will be reading three of his books: Hoot, Flush, and Scat. Each book has a bit of an environmental science twist. There's also a mystery coming your way in each book. There will be plenty of action and amazing characters. We know you're really going to love these books.
Today, after your previous key time blog post has been approved, you will be able to select a book to begin with. The book will be checked out to you, so please be careful with it. Some of the books had to be brought in from other school libraries. Thanks in advance for taking great care of the books.
As you will see, there are plenty of connections between the three books, and all of them are incredible. You simply cannot make a bad choice.
Your first assignment is to read chapters one and two in your book and then write a comment on this post.
In your comment, please answer the following questions:
1. Who is the main character? What are five great words that the author uses to describe the character or their actions? What do you think is important about this character so far?
2. Would you like to hang out with this character in real life for a day? Why or why not? Be specific.
After your comment has been accepted, please respond to at least two other students.
Don't choose your friends.
Think about what makes a great comment.
Push your thinking, Dragons!
Mr. Moore and Ms. Vander Velde
