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.

1.I think that the old man has the notebook because he likes it.

That would be so awesome because we love Voicethread. We have read ahead, so we will not comment because we don't want to give it away.
Some cool real historical facts you can learn from reading this book and looking at the website: Automata were created by magicians. There was a real train crash in Paris. Georges Melies was a real person, who made real movies such as A Trip to the Moon (you can watch this on YouTube), and he collected automata and was a magician. You can learn about old movies and about Paris. You can learn lots about the author Brian Selznick too.
