Othon:Litareary Lumanery chapter 15 pg.58 paragrph 2 I think it is very tense and in that paragraph th tense breaks out and the ice cracks!
Literary Luminary Ch14 when the largest cannon falls into the lakeCh14 when they take the cannon out of the Mohawk riverBy:AJ
Othon to Manas and Victor Me to I would like to know more, But I think I have not read it yet. I can not wait to read it!
I picked chapter 19 paragragh 1 because it shows how the man felt. I felt bad for what the man had to go through because the book says that his back ached his shoulders burned whith pain. Thats why I picked that part.~Josuan
dear gregory,when did you get the snow mobile?victor chung
Othon to Josuan Sometimes that is I feel after ma long day. I liked how you explained how the man felt
Dear AJ Did that cannon hurt anybody i hope not and how did they take it out they must have bull power to take it out of the lake.Manas
Dear Josuan What man are you talking about?Why does his back ache,Why are his shoulder burned with painAJ
Dear A.J.,Why did you choose the part about the cannon falling into the lake? Did you find it interesting? Sad? Descriptive? If you were Will, how would you have felt during that scene?~Mrs. D.
Dear ototn what is MA stand forManas
Dear Matt I do not have a snowmobel!Gregory
dear Manas,it is chapter 19 for the cannon crashing.Victor Chung
Othon to Gregory When did you get a snowmobile
Othon to all I am sory for all the mastaikies in my letters
Williamchapters 11-141.In chapter 11 there is a big snowstorm and i have been stuck in a big snowstomr before2.There are muskets and cannons and stuff like that in chapters 11-14P.S Othon my name is not Wialiam its William
Dear ManasThe cannon did not hurt anybodyBut a man with an ax who's job was to cut the rope incase that happendAJ
Dear AJ,the cannon is still useibule so they can still use it in the war agenst the britsh.Victor
WilliamChapter 141. when the ice cracks i wounder why it sounded like a gunfire2. ive seen ice crack
Dear william, I have ben in a snow stom too.Victor
Dear A.J.from:Matthew, There was a guy that got hurt his name was J.P..He broke his arm when the cannon strings snapped then the cannon fell into the pond
Gregory to OthonAt 4am it is foggy
Dear Victor coolWilliam
Matthew & Josuan, You both picked the same section for you Literary Luminary -The opening scene of chapter 19.It is very interesting however because you chose it for very different reasons! Both of which are valid! What would have happened if they:A) Did not work together so cooperativly?B) Gave up because they were so tired and in so much pain?How do you think the story would have turned out?~Mrs. D.
Othon to Matt That was not J.P. who fell off it was his father who broke his arm look on page 58 to find my awnser
Dear Everyone,Just to clarify when I was doing my job I thougt that when the drunk guy was in the middle of the road I thought that was scary because if you see a guy in the colonial army lying on the road you would think he was dead. So thats why I said it was scary... I thougt it was funny because Will Knox wipped him and sweared to him. Its also worth rembering because of all that happened.Matt
Connectortext to self- i have ben in a snow storm.text to text- there are other books about G.W.Text to worled- this rely happond.victor
William & Victor,Can you elaborate more on your snowstorm /cracking ice connections? How did you feel when you were involved in that? How do you think your situation compares to the troops in the story?~Mrs. D.
Dear Othon,Yeah you were wright it mentioned it in the story. Matt
Matt I agree with othon
Othon to William If I had that job(LL) I would put for one of the paragraghs on page63 paragragh4 where the caw,caw,caw is
Dear othon, i thought the person was J.P.Victor
Othon to Victor Look for the awnser on page 58
why did three troopships come from englandwith a whole passelof new sojers.why did they want to tell bow wow that howes had to scrap from the bottom of the barrel.what is the point of the book.
AJParking lotI have a connection to the world We were recently talking about rumorsin the 18th chapter of guns for general washington, paragraph 3 it says that there were rumors going around about the british
Dear othon I have a difforent book than you .Victor
othon to victor page 85 in your book
Dear Mrs.DiNapoli,What would have happened was that A if they did not cooperate good together Will Knox would have abandoned soliders and would not get to George washingtons army.B they would not get to George washinton and they would not deefeat the British. Also I think the colonial army would win with hill advantages and bigger cannons. Matt
Was it cool at the end when they started shoting at the british
heyy it's alexa from my brother sam is dead!!!!!Your book sounds interesting but your comments don't make sense.Alexa
connector1: I have a freind named J.P the name stands for Jhon Pattersson2: I have seen in a movie cannons fall off a cliff and fall in a lake.Manas
Zeuss,What do you think the point of the book is?Maybe there is not necessarily a "lesson" here -but a description of certain events. What do you think would have been different if this trip to Fort Ticonderoga was unsuccessful?Can anyone help explain what the colonists mean when they say England is "scraping from the bottom of the barrel" to get more soilders?What are the troops in England thinking /feeling at this point?Zeuss if no one else can answer that question we can talk again!~Mrs. D.
Dear AJI like your parking lot connection.it mostly relates to the story and to open circle.
