We did this really cool activity in class. We had to pretend that we were Ghost from the story by Jason Reynolds. We had to write four things that we thought Ghost was thinking before the running Race. I really enjoyed this activity.

Walt : deliberately choose words to create an effect on the audience
I was able to write a speech with a lot of persuasive words to make my speech have a larger effect on the audience.
My next step is to put more persuasive words in all of my writing not just my speeches.

Walt: make a prediction based on the cover and blurb of Ghost by Jason Reynolds.
I was able to look at the cover and pictures with the runner to make a prediction about why I think this story is about a boy and what he gets up to running and what I think the story will be about. I was also able to read the blurb and make a new prediction on what I think the story is about.
Next time I will look for more detail to make my prediction more justified.
