Pre Reading






What made you choose this book?
 When I first read the back of the book I heard that this book is about world war 2 and I like violence books.
What appeals to you?
The bombs and the barbed wires 
What hooked you in I knew that war books should have violence and other stuff that's so that is what hooked me in.

Title
If this is a war books name is called This land we call home 
why shouldn't it sound more sad and war like? instead of this land we call 
home.

Cover Design 
When I looked at this cover I think this would have sad
endings and destroyed houses by the bombs.

Blurb
I think this story is set in Pearl Harbor and I know that this story is about 
world war 2 because it said on the back. I think that there's war between
Japan and another country because this story is in Japan, so that's why
I think there's war. 

Prediction
The first thing I saw on the cover was the cherry blossom so 
I knew that there was gonna be somthing Japanese in this book 
and the bombs on the side so I knew that this book was about war

Discovery Time

Today in Discovery Time I played a game that was half rip rugby and half American football.

I showed Agency by playing by the rules in the game.

I showed excellence by listening to others 

I showed creativity by making other rules 
Next time in D.T(Discovery Time) I might do minecraft
