The Big Reflection -HOLES

In English, we have been reading a book called ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar from September.

This book is about a boy called Stanley Yelnats going to Camp Green Lake. One day, Stanley got caught for stealing Clyde Livingston’s shoes. He blamed all the bad things to his great-great granfather. At Camp Green Lake, they need to dig holes until they get out of the camp green lake. As he dig, he finds out the secret of his great-grandfather and the warden. If you want to know more… go ahead, and read it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When we were reading the book, our group worked on making connections between the characters. During the presentation we did, we connected to each other by using comparison words which went really good. We made connections between the book and the film.

I think our group was organized half way through because on the other half, we were a little rushing because we didn’t finish the presentation and didn’t know what slide each of us are going to say. We want to improve by making time to practice more and put more effort on slides and put more details to it.

During the presentation, our group used these comparison words: However, Also, In addition, On the other hand, (plus), and Like.

Our group presented some of the quotations in the book and connected to the film. We talked what was the same/similar and how we know that. We also talked about the film technique ‘montage’.

Our presentation was not too long and not to short so I think the audience were listening to us and also they were looking at us, so we could tell that they were listening.

We talked about our presentation for 5 minutes. I think we had enough details. Each of us talked quite well balanced so I think it went really good.
