Today, Inquiring Minds has been taken over by Richland’s students in Grades 4-6! We welcome these young bloggers to share their insights and opinions of the books they’ve studied, as part of the Silver Birch collection. This is the first installment of a series. We welcome your feedback for these writers, as they reflect on their literary experiences and write for an authentic audience through Richland’s blog.
Imagine you weren’t free. For some people this is a reality. Our Silver Birch Book Club had a great discussion about freedom, hope, and survival. We made amazing quotes and connections. These are some of them:“Life and death are two places too close together.” -N.M.
“Send animals back to the wild so they can be free.” -T.F.
“Animals breathe the same air as we do, so we shouldn’t kill them.” -J.A.
“Hope is the key to survival.” -K.L.
“Hope guides you through your challenges.” -K.L.
“If we didn’t have hope we wouldn’t survive.” -N.M.
“Hope comes in many shapes and sizes.” -N.M.
“Freedom is a right, but is not always respected.” -K.L.
In the end, this quote summed up our learning perfectly.
