"Ghost Story" The day Patrice was killed!!!

There once was a girl that everyone thought was kind of weird. She would always wear the color black. Her name was Patrice Brown. She was a quiet girl that did not like anyone. She was the type of girl that had a mean attitude.If someone was to mess with her she would lose control. One day she was walking into school and everyone was being so loud, but she was the only one quiet. People was talking about her when she was going into the school. She didn't know who to kill first. A fat girl name Cindy threw a big ball of paper at Patrice and it hit her face. Patrice got so mad and was losing control of herself. She bit Cindy in her face. Cindy had a big bite mark on her face. She wanted to kill Cindy and a lot of people after school but she didn't know how. The next day she was walking across the street going to school. There were people walking to school and talking about Patrice Clothes. Patrice was getting real angry and started to jump around losing control. She was still in the street and she was still going crazy. She wasn't paying attention and she was hit by a big white truck. When she died she put a voodoo curse on the whole world and she killed everyone that made front of her.

Reading Response 2

Title:A Tree Grows In Brooklyn
Author:Betty Smith

This book is fantastic and I'm beginning to like it more.Also Francie is beginning to be my
favorite character in the book.Francie is very nice and loves to read books.She is just like me.
My favorite part in the book is when Francie goes to the library every day to read books. I can relate to that because I go to the library every day after school to read books too.
Francie read bigs books(chapter books) and she reads little books(picture books).

My least favorite part in the book was when Francie little brother and his friends
were being mean to this little Jewish boy. The reason why this is my least favorite part because
that is not nice to do that to people that is littler than you.They would of been scared if big people did that to them.I wouldn't do that to anybody because I wouldn't want someone doing that to me.
I like this book a lot and hope to know more about it as I read it everyday.

Title:This Land Is Your Land

How does the information in the box "A Day in the life(of me)" helps the reader understand
the article?

The information in the box helps readers understand the article by the reader reading
the information in the box and knowing what Ashirah do everyday.For example,
in the article it says that "Ashirap wakes up everyday at 6:30 and at 7:30 or 8:00 she begins
doing her daily chores". That can show the reader what she does everyday in her life.

Title:A Tree Grows In Brooklyn
Author:Betty Smith
Pages Read:8

I just started reading this book and so far I'm starting to like it.
To me in my own words by reading the title I think the story is gonna be about a girl that is lonely and she finds a tree and talks to it everyday and sees the tree as being her friend.In my
mind I think that the main character Francie is going to be my favorite character in this book.
I say this because so far in the story she seems like a nice intelligent 11 year old little girl.

So far I only read about 8 pages in the book and what I read was about a girl name Francie who lives with her mom,her brother,and her moms boyfriend. Francie is a girl who is very lonely and loves money a lot.Everyday she goes out to her backyard to see her big huge tree with leaves that looks like umbrellas.I think right now she is beginning to like the tree.But I wouldn't no unless I read more of the book.
