We met with a small group on Saturday, since many students were out of town for fall break. Instead of beginning our next novel, we continued to do activities related to I Funny. Students began by writing letters to James Patterson. They told him what they enjoyed about I Funny, and asked him questions about his life and his writing process.
Students then worked on a choice menu. Choices ranged from writing a parody of a popular song to creating a comic strip based on their favorite scene from the book. It was a lot of fun! We also had to go play outside since it was such a glorious day.
Our next meeting will be on Saturday, November 2. We look forward to seeing everyone then!
