This is an assignment from the Reading Workshop.
The Reading OAA test was a little hard to me.But some of the questions were easy to me. When I had trouble with a question I would
go back into the passage and I found the answer to the question. I think the first passage was the hardest passage in the test. I would also underline something important too. When I went back into the passage it made the test a lot easier. When I was done with the test I was thinking that it wasn’t to hard.
OurWay state is a big tournament for wresting. I go there a lot. It happens once a year. Last year I went there and I did not place. It is one of the biggest tournament in Ohio. If you place there you can go to Nationals. Last year I went and it was in Illinois. This year it is in Michigan. I hope I do good there this year.

Dear Mr. McGuire
I am reading The Maze Runner by James Dashner. It is a really good book so far.
One thing that was freaky was when Thomas was walking in the woods then Ben’s blood shot eye was staring at Thomas, and then Ben bit Thomas. Ben crouched ready to spring for another attack and then Thomas saw a knife in Ben’s hands. Thomas was filled with queasy fear disbelief that this was happening at all. Ben! Thomas look for the voice and was shocked to see Alby with his bow pointing at Ben. When Ben tried to attack. Alby shot Ben in the face with the arrow.
Chuck stopped right in front of Thomas panting and then the words slowly came Ben Ben he isn’t dead.The arrow missed his brain and Med Jacks patched him up. Thomas turned to the woods where the sick boy attack him the night before.
Another thing that was really weird about the book are the Grievers. What happened! Minho raised his eyebrows and nodded toward Thomas. Thomas sat quietly in anticipation as Minho struggled to stand up, wincing with every move, his whole demeanor just screaming exhaustion. Then Minho said “I found a dead one”. “Huh?” Alby asked. “A dead what?” “A dead Griever.”
Then another thing about the Griever. Minho and Alby went into the maze to see the dead Griever. Then Newt said ” They should be back in an hour or two”. But they were gone for most of the day. When Newt stared to see them come back running really fast and the doors were closing and Thomas went into the maze and the doors closed. When he got to Minho said the Griever are good at faking their death because they were beat up really bad.
The New York Giant’s are going to do awesome in 2013 just like they did in 2012 when they won the Superbowl. In 2012 and in 2008 the Giant’s beat the Patriots in the Superbowl and if they vs again the giants will win again. The Giant’s were always my favorite team in the NFL. The teams I don’t like at all is the Browns, Steelers, Bengals, and the Colts. GIANT’S ROCK!!!
I like the Skeleton Creek series because when I read the Skeleton Creek book it was awesome and I had to read the Ghost In The Machine and that was awesome too. Then when I finished Ghost In The Machine I decided I was going to read the rest of the series. They were awesome! I think the best books from that series was The Raven and Ghost In The Machine. Series books are what I read most of the time.
Series Books are a lot of fun to read. The reason I like the Skeleton Creek series was because one thing would happen after another. It always kept me on my toes. I think everyone should read a series of books especially the Skeleton Creek series.

My Book is The Always War by Margaret Peterson Haddix. http://www.haddixbooks.com/books/always_war.html. I started this book because my friend said it was a good book and he is right it is a good book. Margaret Peterson Haddix is a great author. The author writes great books a lot of my friends read his books and now I like his books too. When I finish this book I am going to try to read more Margaret Peterson Haddix books.
In The beginning of the book it was boring but now it is getting good. Then Gideon came back from the war and he was going to get a metal for being brave in the war but he did not take the metal because he said he was a coward. I liked that part because he just said one thing and then just took off somewhere else. He was puking in a trash can when Tessa found him.
Tessa and Gideon were in a plane near an enemy base. When they were trying to get the plane working a person came out of the closet and said you guys aren’t suppose to be here what are you doing here. I like how the author made the person say you guys aren’t suppose to be here what are you doing here. It made me think what is happening and where did the person came from.
Right now the plane crashed and Gideon got out of the plane and said I surrender I surrender and Tessa said that she saw every sweat on Gideon, the crust in his hair, and the way his hands trembled. I liked how the author made Tessa see everything on Gideon.
Gideon and Tessa got mad at each other. They were both picking up rocks and dropping them to leave a trail for them to get back and Gideon was holding something which was heavy and made his arms go numb. But he still did not complain.The author makes Gideon look tough.
Gideon, Tessa and Dek were on the plane trying to get out by pressing the eject button on their seats, but it was not working. Then a voice came on and they all stopped. The author made Gideon, Tessa and Dek feel like what is going on here.
I know you read this book and you liked it. I like this book too. It gets better and better every page I read. This is one of the best books I ever read.
The Always War by Margaret Peterson Haddix.
I think Tessa likes Gideon because in the book he runs and Tessa follows him and they don’t know each other that well. Tessa even went into his house to see him. Then She went on a plane with him and Gideon was going to die but then Tessa knocked him to the ground and said no one is going to die.
I think Tessa is a little bit jealous because she was yelling at him when he did not take the medallion and she was saying don’t you know what it is like for the rest of us those of us aren’t heroes? Don’t you know dreary our lives are and this was going to be our golden moment for us.
Tessa likes to be with Gideon because she run after him when he does not get medallion and she goes in his house and gives him flowers.
