I am reading Queste from the Septimus Heap series by Angie Sage. Here is a video of that:
I am working on reading fluently and not reading fast so then I do not have to stop in the middle of the sentence or mess up so much. I am much better at reading in my head than out loud. I think I need to work also on expression and pronunciation. I am good at understanding what I read.
What is your favorite book?
What do you think I need to work on?
Chapter Three-To the Dungeons we March!
Posted on November 15, 2013 at 5:19 pm by Melody Watson and
To the Dungeons we March!
Framata was running. Fast. She could hear the merte’s soft footfalls as they sped after her. But they were getting quieter and quieter. Finally, when she could no longer hear them so she stopped to rest against a large oak tree.
“What was that?” Framata said to herself as she heard a twig snapping behind her. Then in the blink of an eye a particularly large merte had picked her up, grabbed a rope, and trussed her like a chicken. That was when everything went black.
When she regained consciousness she realized she was lying on her belly on a cold stone floor. She rolled over and groaned.
“,Everything hurts” Then she heard a familiar high pitched voice squeal
“Framata what happened to you? you are all tied up and groaning, you even look dizzy!”
“Every single word of that is true Pandra, will you help me get out of these ropes?” she asked.
The next day when Brigora was at Ladaria’s house that day Brigora said bravely
“,Lets go find Framata and Pandra”
“What,” gasped Ladaria
“I said,” said Brigora again, this time a bit impatiently “,Lets go find Framata and Pandra.”
“I must be dreamining,” said Ladaria planting her head in her hands and firmly shaking her head.
“Nope, you’r not dreaming,” said Brigora.
“Ok but have you had enough time to consider that,” asked Ladaria.
“Yup,” said Brigora. Ladaria sighed.
“Dad will never let me,” said Ladaria.
“We will have to sneak away,” said Brigora “We will do it tomorrow so when I leave tonight get packed up.”
Then Master Sunwell’s deep voice boomed kindly “,Brigora it is time for you to leave.” So Brigora said goodbye to Ladaria and bounded down the stairs.
My Remembrance Day Poem
Posted on November 4, 2013 at 2:13 pm by Brooklynn and
When all the soldiers fought,
And how many died was a lot,
Because they brought us peace,
Remembering is the least
That we can do
They went away to war,
Saving what we had before,
And every Remembrance Day,
All filmed in black and white and gray.
We remember what they did,
None of them cowered or hid.
They did it all for us.

On Halloween I am going to be Moirane. If you have not gotten it by then I might write a post about what she is in early November. Halloween is so much fun. I like the big fireworks the best. This year after the fireworks we are going to light our own that we bought at the Co-op. We also go lots of places to trick or treat and this year I am going with Bronwen. My favorite part of Halloween is getting to get your costume ready.
What is your favorite part of Halloween?

When Mistress Greentop woke up she was still musing over where her daughter could be. Well Pandra Rodengloss too but to her, Framata was much more important. She decided to write a letter to her husband. It said:
Framata has gone missing, please look for her at the farm
She would have to wait until the postman came by. Meanwhile, She thought that she should probably talk to Mistress Rodengloss, she would be worried about her daughter as well but that thought got interrupted by a knock on the door. She stretched her way out of bed, threw on a robe, and answered the door. It was Mistress Rodengloss. She felt sort of embarrased. She was in her robe with bags under her eyes and Rodengloss was fully dressed and totally awake.
“What are you doing here this early?” she asked.
“Early?” said Rodengloss
“Yes early its- wait a second” She poked her head inside and glanced at her clock. She felt as though her cheeks were on fire. It was two in the afternoon. She had overslept. Badly. She said “Maybe we could talk some other time, I know you are worried about your daughter too but” she gestured to herself “I think you get it, bye,”
she said slamming the door so hard from embarrassment that a moment afterwards she heard a small yelp from the other side of her door.
The next morning when Brigora woke up she sighed. she would have to wait until tomorrow to see Ladaria because now she was getting ready for the walk back to the farm. She said goodbye to Master Sunwell, who said he would tell Ladaria when she woke up that Brigora said goodbye. She picked up her cloak and headed out the door. She waved to the smaller children playing on the road as she walked out of town.
When she got to the farm she shouted “Hi dad I am home!” and he replied
“Hi Brigora, my girl.” And then she headed to her room to get settled. She hung up her cloak on the hook in her room and plopped down on her bed. She was exhausted from the long walk back. Her father said it was good exercise though. She heard him yell, “Brigora, come help me and collect the eggs from those chickens there”
“Okay dad,” she sighed as she got up again to go help with the chickens.
Chapter One-Brigora and Landaria
Posted on October 21, 2013 at 7:28 pm by Brooklynn and
Brigora and Ladaria
The wind whistled through the nearly leafless trees. It was a cool shady night. A wolf howl broke the near silence. Brigora Dewleaf was scared. Well, it was not like she didn’t walk down this path every night to get from her farm to the town for the night. But, still this road sent chills down her back.
“Brrr,” Brigora shivered. “Well at least I am almost in the town, I can see it.”
When she got to the town Inn she said, “Hello Master Sunwell.”
He answered, “Hello Brigora, and if you are looking for Ladaria she is upstairs in her room.” Ladaria Sunwell was the Innkeeper’s daughter and Brigora’s very best friend.
“Thank you,” Brigora answered and she raced upstairs.
Ladaria’s room was neat and tidy, very much unlike the one she had on the farm, with small china dolls perched just so on her bookshelf with the books lined up straight. Ladaria was reading one on her immaculate perfectly made bed.
“Hi Ladaria,” Brigora said. Ladaria kept on reading. “LADARIA!” Brigora shouted.
Ladaria jumped up from her bed and demanded, “What, I was just at a good part daddy? Oh its you Brigora, sorry,” she said in her high squeaky (and now a little irritated) voice. “Well I guess I can read it later,” Ladaria sighed.
“Brigora, I have some very bad news.”
“What is it?” Brigora asked excitedly. “Mistress Sunwell, my mom, saw a merte.”
“Oh no,” Groaned Brigora, taking a seat on Ladaria’s bed. Merte were the evil creatures Lord Nefarious sends to places he would like to “borrow” people from. “I wonder who they are coming to take?” asked Brigora, gradually overcoming her shock.
“I asked mom who, but she scolded me and sent me away. I think they might be coming for Pandra Rodengloss. She is weird and crazy and, well, you can’t say she doesn’t stick out,” replied Ladaria.
“We could ask Framata Greentop, she is Pandra’s best friend,” suggested Brigora.
“Lets go,” said Ladaria confidently.
When they were down the staircase Ladaria asked “Dad, can Brigora and me go to Framata’s house?”
“Framata,” he said. “Who is that?”
“Greentop?” said Ladaria impatiently.
“Ohh Greentop. Sure as long as you are back before bed. You too Brigora, you are my responsibility while you are here and Master Dewleaf is on the farm, and also before you barge in, ask Mistress Greentop,” Master Sunwell said.
“Ok,” the two girls said together.
When they got to Framata’s house they rapped on the door and waited. In a while Mistress Greentop answered it. She said, “Why hello girls would you like to come in?”
They answered, “Could we see Framata?”
Mistress Greentop answered worriedly, “No I am sorry her and Pandra Rodengloss dissapeared last night.” The girls stared at each other in horror.
“Well then lets go home,” said Ladaria, standing in front of Brigora to hide her open mouth.
When they got to the inn Brigora horrifiedly whispered, “We are too late!”

A couple days ago we had pyjama day where you could bring a guy (what I call a stuffy) wear pyjamas and a house coat. It was so much fun! At the end of the day we had this fun game where when the music is going you dance with your guy and when it stops you fall asleep on the floor then they eliminate three people at a time. Jason did a tango with his big bear and he won.
After we had all the prizes had been handed out (for most colorful pajamsa largest and smallest guy) everybody went down to the library to pick out a book to buddy read with a partner. Then the day was over. Thank you so much to the students council for organizing this wonderful day!
We Had A Great time!
All about Aes Sedai
Posted on October 2, 2013 at 10:29 am by Brooklynn and
For the book the stories are saying Aes Sedai are witches and are sometimes called the witches of Tar Valon. When you are a teenager and you have the one power in you you are taken to the white tower to train. On your way there you train every night.
When you get there you are a novice and you are not allowed out of the tower. When you are powerful enough you can be raised to the accepted.
To do that you have to face your fears three times. Then you get to wear a white dress with seven bands of colour around the waist. You also get a golden ring and on it there is a golden serpent biting its tail. Then you live in the accepted quarters. When you are powerful enough you are raised to Aes Sedai.
To do that you have to channel under pressure, recieve the shawl, take oaths and choose your ajah.
Summer And the New School Year
Posted on October 2, 2013 at 10:28 am by Brooklynn and
I had a good time over the summer but I am glad it is school again. In summer I went to Big Lake a lot, played in the sprinkler almost every day, went to Mayne Island, and went to the Dunroven Farm. All in all, I think my summer was pretty awesome. Was your summer lots of fun as well as mine? What was your favourite part of summer?
Even though I love summer, school is pretty awesome too. I like doing math in Ms. Lansdowne’s class and I get a cool math program called Mathletics instead of Dreambox. I wanted to take french this year but Ms. Lansdowne already has 27 kids for it.
My sister, Sierra LOVES “Big School” and she says her favourite parts are playing outside and doing centers with Ms.Nessbit.
SCHOOL AND SUMMER ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!
Masala Youth Group
Posted on September 19, 2013 at 1:28 pm by Brooklynn and
Yesterday we were lucky to get a visit from the Masala youth group who came all the way from Finland! In Finland they were performing a play all in Fin called Sointula. Then someone from Sointula contacted them and asked if they would put the play on here, and guess what, they said yes!
They are going to put on the play on the weekend that is all in Finnish and three hours long so on Wednesday they came to the school to do theater with us. It was so much fun!
We played socket tag when someone is it if they tag you you put your hands on your hips and to be freed someone who is not it has to put their arms through yours. We played it in the gym.
We also played a game to learn names where you shake two hands at once say your name twice then let go and find two more people. Eventually it turns into one long chain.
We all loved it. We hope they could come again and do it with us soon. It was so much fun!
