As part of our literature circle, the students choice to take part in a “blog.” The blog served as an exciting way to integrate technology and literacy standards. The book they chose is Wringer by Jerry Spinelli. The first six questions posted on this blog are created by the students. The questions following the student’s questions, served as the “teacher question” part of the literature circle process. As another extension, the students have an ongoing blog to serve as their writing porfolio (see the link category “student’s pages.

In His Shoes

If you were in Palmers shoes do you think you would want to be in that town?
So if you cared for a pigeon how he does, do you think you could still wring it?

Why else do you think that Palmer kept both the pigeon in his room a secret and the secret about him fearing the fact that he would have to become a wringer on his tenth birthday?

If there was another sequel for Wringer, what would it be about and why do you choose that?

How come Palmer and his friends have to be a wringer? How come Palmer doesn’t want to be a wringer if his friends were? Where did Palmer’s friend take Palmer when they snuck Palmer out of the house?

Palmer Stands Paralyzed

When the boys snuck Palmer out of his house they lead him to an old shed. When they went in all the boys, except for Palmer walked up to some crates, and then they soon opened them. Birds flew out of them all the boys except Palmer held their hands like they had a gun in it, and shouted BANG and BOOM and BOW! But Palmer stood there with his eyes opened wide; he didn’t move he stood like he was paralyzed. Why do you think Palmer didn’t move? What do you think he was feeling?
