Today we read the final chapter of our read aloud novel "Fish." Below is a Padlet with some of our predictions prior to reading today.
Many of us were surprised that the author ended the story the way that she did. We discussed some of the reasons why she might have left out the fate of certain characters; many of us thought she wanted the readers to imagine the ending for themselves. We tweeted author L.S. Matthews with some of our thoughts! She's usually great at responding and has even read some of our blogs, so it's been a cool experience! The novel may be finished, but we will continue exploring its themes and characters for a few more weeks.
We are a class of Grade 6/7 students in Surrey, BC, Canada. This blog is one way we will share our learning with the world!
