If you were trapped on an island what two things would you bring with you?

Everyone knows the question: if your were to be trapped on an island what two things would you want to have with you? Well, I have been reading this book, Robinson Crusoe, it’s about a man who gets trapped on an island and has to stay there until he can find a way off the island.  Because of what happened in the book I was assigned to do a paper on what two things I would want have  if I was trapped on an island like what happened to Robinson Crusoe

The first thing I would want to have would probably be a knife with a built in sharpener so that if it ever gets dull. I would choose a knife for a few reasons. First, I can make ropes and baskets and many other things with it. Second I can catch fish with it. The way i would catch fish would be to first, find one and then I would have to stab it with my knife, in the head, and then make sure it is dead then cook it. Yes, it would be harder to use than just using a fishing rod but I can do many things with a knife but pretty much only one thing with a fishing rod. Also I can not use my fishing rod to help skin the fish but my knife would be able to!

The second thing I would need is a solar power heavy duty desalinization and water purifier kit. Everyone needs water. Many bad things can happen if you become dehydrated. On islands, if it is anything like Florida in the summer, it would be extremely hot. Therefore you will sweat a lot, and the more you sweat the more water you are losing.  Also you need water because your body is 60% water that should tell you how important water is. When you are dehydrated, you get really thirsty for water. if the water on your island is salt water then if you drink it you get more dehydrated. That is why I would want a solar power heavy duty desalinization and water purifier kit.

I was thinking about having a hacksaw so that I could hack through mountains to make a cave but then I either wouldn’t be able to eat or I wouldn’t be able to drink. I would rather drink than eat for two reasons. First water to me is way more important than food. And second, if I luck out there will be fruit in the trees for me to eat!

Switched at Birthday

Last week I got this book called: Switched at Birthday. It’s one of the many types of stories similar to Freaky Friday.

On that note, you can assume that it’s about two people who switch bodies and while they try to get back to normal, they find out what they love or like about the person who they switched with. This book is similar,  but these two girls figure out the struggles of each other!

One girl’s name is Lavender. From the name I would think she was the popular one. I was wrong, Lavender is  picked on because she is flocculent, Meaning hairy. She has a small amount of friends because she is made fun of.

The other girls name is Scarlet. She, of course, is the popular one. Scarlet has many friends and makes fun of Lavender. Lavender admires Scarlet and how no matter what Scarlet wears she looks very pretty.

Once they switch bodies they have to do everything that the other girl would so that no one will suspect anything. When Lavender was in Scarlet’s body, Scarlet’s friends would talk about Lavender and how they said she had to go to a dog groomer to get her hair cut. Then Lavender would know that they talk about her. They didn’t know it but this time they said it right to her face. That is really painful to know that they talk like this, about her, all time.

To find out what else happened you can find the book in the link above.

Ten Good and Bad Tings About My Life

I read this book called: Ten Good and Bad Things About my Life (So Far) .

I loved reading this book because it was about this girl who was in the fifth grade and on the first day of school she was assigned to write an essay, and include an outline, of her summer vacation. During most of the book it seems like she is talking to you and explaining her summer. You can, however, tell that she is writing this down because of the font changes. In the end, it shows a copy of her outline, and to me she said a lot for the small amount that was on her paper.

I can feel where she is coming from, in most of what she is saying.

I got this book from the public library near me.

I hope you can’t wait for more on learning in pajamas

Pajama Book Report: Judy Moody and the Bad Luck Charm

I read the book Judy Moody and the Bad Luck Charm by Megan McDonald. In my opinion it was a very enjoyable book! I am going to inform you why I think that.

Every book has an exposition or, in other words, an introduction. In the introduction it generally explains or lets you know who the main character is, where they are , and the position or situation they are in.

In Judy Moody it explains that she is the main character she claims to have a lucky penny that, of course, gives her good luck. It also tells you that she is in a restaurant with her family.

Next , we have the rising action. As you can tell from the title this is when the tension starts to rise and you can sort of feel like something  good or bad is going to happen.

I could feel the tension rising when Judy kept getting really fabulous luck I wasn’t expecting some of the things that happened.

The climax is when the most tension is “in the air,” or when the most important part is happening. That would be when Judy’s friend Jessica invited her to go with her to Washington D.C. to watch her pig while she was in a spelling bee. Along with that, a “mini climax” would be when she was watching the pig– it ran off and Judy couldn’t find it.

After the climax is the falling action. That is when everything is starting to settle down and there is not as much tension as there was before.

That would be when Judy found the pig and went back to the hotel room.  As well as when Jessica came back from the spelling bee to tell them her place.

Then. in the end is the resolution this is how it ended up or how thing went for everyone.

In Judy Moody, it turns out that Jessica won the spelling bee, Judy got to see the President of the United States, and it turned out she lost the penny BUT she still had her good luck so it ended up that she didn’t need the penny, she was naturally lucky!

Those are the five parts of a plot and that is the story of Judy Moody and the Bad Luck Charm!
