My sixth grade students have chosen to read “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.” We are currently studying literary elements including characters, setting, plot and theme. Today, we did a respond to text and here is a sample from one of my students.
The most interesting thing that has happened in the book was when Harry Potter had to run through the wall to get to the train. I was unsure that he was not going to make it because he closed his eyes and was running full speed.
My favorite character is Dumbledore, because he has an interesting personality. He is very funny, nice, and generous.
I predict that Harry will have trouble doing his test, since he does not know magic. I know that he will not do good because Harry also said that he was nervous and didn’t know anything.
I like the book so far.
