Nicky and OLivia I totally agree with you guys. If I could be friends with anyone in “The Sign of the Beaver” by Elizabeth George Speare it would be Attean. I would love to learn how to hunt and learn new skills on how to hunt. I would also like how Attean would show me a different ways to live my life besides the normal/usual way I already live my life. But like OLivia said I would love having someone there for me whenever I needed a shoulder to cry on or someone to talk to or even just plain old having someone who you can trust and rely on.
After reading “The Sign of the Beaver” by Elizabeth George Speare, if I were Matt and Attean didn’t teach me how to hunt I would feel insucure, irresponsible and most of all afraid. I would feel this way because surviving on your own is pretty scary and if you don’t know how to hunt for food than you are pretty much left out there to starve to death. By the way, Nicky the reading was 39-76.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!
I agree with you Olivia. If I were Matt I would be upset if my dad told me he had to leave for six to seven weeks. The way Matt’s dad told him that he was leaving wasn’t in the best fatherly way as possible. I would be a little disapointed and maybe a little angry even though he was only leaving to get his mother and his sister. I wouldn’t want my father to get hurt in any sort of way. I would also dislike it if my father left because I feel as if I couldn’t take care of myself as well as I could if my father were there. This is why I would react in a negative way if I were in Matt’s situation.
Great job guys I totally agree with you. After reading the book “Crash” by Jerry Spinelli I have realized that the life lesson in the book is not to jump to conclusions so quickly. In the book Crash and Mike (Crash’s frind) likes to torture Penn ever since he has moved from North Dakota to Pennsylvania where Mike and Crash live. I aslo agree with Nickolas, Bett and Olivia that people can change. In the book Crash had a little crush on Jane Forbes but he got a little jelous when he saw Jane help Penn clean off his shoes, even though Crash was the person who squirted musterd in them. But in the end he gets invited to Jane Forbes party. Also in the text the last sentence of the book is “Penn Webb is my best friend.” This proves to me that you can’t jump to conclusions about people. It also proves that when people change it sometimes could be for the better, espically in Crash’s case because it made him a better person.
