I would like you to read the book Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren (1945), at least some chapters. I think Chapter number 4 is very interesting, it is called "Pippi Goes To School". However I cannot find a pdf version of the (whole) book. Go to the public library or to a bookshop or go here and click next. It has no paragraphs but it has audiobook option, so you can listen to it while reading it which seems great!
First of all, I want to thank you for your great participation and the kind feedback in ERW1.
Secondly, I want to ask you to printscreen your journoportfolio and send everything as a pdf document to my email. Some of your portfolios have shown some problems. It seems that there is a free trial period, which didn't exist when I started using this online tool a couple of years ago. I am really sorry for any inconvenience.
So, first challenge, breath in, breath out :) and prepare a document with your name, the link to your journoportfolio, and printscreens of the different articles and send it to me by email.
BTW, I had to change the dates 2019 (last week 2018 and ERW 2) because there were wrong! I used 2018 calendar! They are very similar. Any issue with the new schedule, let me know. It is available on our Moodle platform under "Read carefully".
I was listening to this magical song "Arrival of the Birds" and I really want to share it with you, let's say, as a Christmas present, if you want :)
I propose two tasks:
1. Listen to it. No rush. It's almost 8 minutes long.
2. After listening to it, what thoughts / feelings did you get when listening to it?
3. Write a creative story with this song. :) What is this song about? You may use this great tool to help you get some ideas, names (just by clicking on the left menu you may get names, settings, whatever you may need to start and continue creative stories).
They are optional tasks. :) or it wouldn't be a present, don't you agree with me? :)
Have a beautiful week!
P.S.: Feel free to contact me by email if you need anything.
For our third reading and writing challenge I want you to get to know this beautiful, amazing, inspiring website called Human of New York by Brandon Stanton. Brandon photographes people on the street and starts a conversation with them. What people share may change the way you think about life, others, etc. This project has been a huge success and it has been able to raise millions for people, schools, communities in need just by sharing the stories on Facebook!
3.1. The website is organised in three sections: Stories, Countries and Series. Please start with Stories. Read some and then share your favourite. Then continue with the other two sections Countries and Series.
3.2. If Brandon had interviewed you last time you were getting home, what would you have said?
Read some poems (or all, why not?) by the amazing Tim Burton (yes, the film director) and share your thoughts (which is your favourite poem?) and write your own poem inspired by Tim Burton's poetry. Choose a weird character with a weird story and write a poem!
I am looking forward to reading your opinions and poems!
