Completed Chapter 7

Friday, February 19, 2010

First, we would like to apologize for not posting anything last week. Some 40 inches of snow was dropped in our area in a matter of 5 days. All of this now gave us a small, mini break last week from Wednesday to Friday (which we now have to make-up later on this year).

We just finished chapter 7, Ashes and were left with many questions and wondering many great things. We want to know your thoughts on whether or not the Old Man still have Hugo's notebook or was that what was in the handkerchief?

I can promise you that next week we will catch up by reading aloud several times to get us back on schedule. If we don't have any snow, that would put us finishing chapter eleven or twelve by next week. I hope to have a voicethread post during this week so we can explore a different way to post comments.

After Chapter 3

Wednesday, February 3, 2010

We just finished reading about Hugo taking care of the clocks in the Paris Train Station. His uncle is responsible for teaching him how to take care of the 37 clocks throughout the station. We never actually see this uncle but he also has a pile of checks that have never been cashed. Where did the uncle go? Where is Hugo living? What about his parents? These are all questions my class had after reading this chapter. This post I would like to comprise a list of questions that you or your class had after reading this chapter or the next few chapters. By the end of this week, we should have read through Chapter 6/7.
If you are a class following this blog and project, I would love to hear suggestions for future posts, where you are from and any other ideas that your classes might have.

Finally, we see people from all over the country (and a few from outside) visiting the blog. Please, Please join in on the blog and project.
