  21. 21. Example 3rd Grade Reading Response: “Ramona Quimby, Age 8” by Beverly Cleary ,Touch of the flu! Egg in her hair? Poor Ramona!<br />“Ramona Quimby, Age 8” is a nine chapter, one hundred and ninety page book about an eight year old girl in third grade. The story was written by Beverly Cleary. She started school with a surprise gift from her dad, only to have it stolen by a boy she called “Yard Ape”. One day at lunch she tried to be cool and show off for her friends by cracking an egg on her head and found herself in a big mess. When flu season hit she learned how awful it felt to throw up in class. She and her sister learn about using good manners at the dinner table. As time goes on Ramona and her family solve their problems, and learn to be more caring for each other. They also learn to be more considerate for each other when time alone is needed.<br />
  22. 22. Example 3rd Grade Reading Response: Paragraph 2<br />My favorite part was during a scene where Ramona’s class is at lunch, “She took a firm hold on her egg, waited until everyone at her table was watching, and whack—she found herself with a hand full of crumbled shell and something cool and slimy running down her face.” (“Ramona Quimby, Age 8”, Bevery Cleary, p. 60) I thought that was funny because she wanted to be cool like the rest of her class, by breaking a hard boiled egg on her head. But guess what, her mother was in such a hurry she gave Ramona a raw egg! Whoops! I did something silly like that before to try to be cool with my friends at school. <br />
  23. 23. Example 3rd Grade Reading Response: Paragraph 3<br />“Ramona Quimby, Age 8” is one of the best Beverly Cleary books I’ve ever read because it pulled me in better than any other book in her series. (I have read 6 of her books.) The book reminded me of other books that I have read. It made pictures in my mind and sounded like a real person wrote it. It also sounded good as I read it, flowed easily from sentence to sentence and sounded like a real 8 year old girl’s life. These traits made me want to keep on reading until the end of the book. <br />
  24. 24. Example 3rd Grade Reading Response: Paragraph 4<br />I think the one thing the author wants me to know is that when my family may be having problems I can be of help by obeying them and not fussing, disturbing, and/or annoying them. I liked this book because the author chose strong, powerful, descriptive words that made gross, imaginative pictures in my mind. Like in her lunch scene at school, “something cool and slimy running down her face”, and at her dinner scene at home, “One edge of her meat was covered with tiny bumps.” I recommend this book to good readers who enjoy good long lasting chapters*.<br />
  25. 25. Important things to remember:<br />Choose a book that you have an understanding and an opinion about.<br />Write down narrative elements (character, setting, plot)<br />Think to yourself about the story and ask questions. (What did I like not like, etc????) <br />Use the graphic organizer to write to gather your thoughts and ideas.<br />Finally, write your rough draft.<br />
  26. 26. Great Work Today!<br />
