Hi, My name is Valeria. I'm reading My Brother Sam is Dead. I have just finished reading chapter 6. The job i have is word wizard. My first word that i picked was gay. I found it on page 77 and i picked it becasue i thought it was diffrent. The meaning in the children's dictionary is: Merry or brightly colored. My second word for word wizard is: Surveying. I found it on page 75. I picked the word surveying because i thought it was weird. The meaning is the act or occupation of a person who makes surveys. The Third word i picked is read. i found it on page 78 i picked it becase it was interesting. It means to give meaning to. The Fourth word is commissary it's on page 82. I thought that it is strange. It means an officer in the church of England that represents a bishop.The one question i have about the reading is:What do YOU think WILL HAPPEN in chapter 7-8 and chapter 9?Thank you , Valeria
Dear Alexa I liked chapter 6 and I hope people don't disagree with me this time. Signed, Victoria

Dear Alexa, Those connections, I have trouble with. My brother is, well, my brother, and when my friends fight, I don't know what to do, but I will always try to do the more honorable thing to do. Abigail
dear aarohi,i think when you were discussion director you were very well planned and your questions were very thought provoking!!!thanks, alexap.s. if you don't know what thought provoking means look it up in a dictionary because i don't know what it means either i just saw it on a word wizard sheet!!!

Hi its Amanda and i am the ddiscussion director. My first qustion is What is the big idea what team you are on? My second qustion is why are they going doing at purdy's station?Third,why do they chop off fish heads? Do you think they will get hurt from all of the snow? What did Tim really think about the war?HAd he made up his mind whitch side he is on?Amanda
Dear Alexa, When I read, I almost always make a picture in my mind, except when I think it is boring, but this book is not boring. I can assure you, nearly everything you've red I have made a picture about.From,Abby
HI! It's Kristen again! I am Connector for chapters 7 and 8.Txt to self: If I where Sam I would want my family to write letters back to me.Txt to Txt: I read a book in the Dear America seris about Valley Forge, it said the men had no shoes and had to rap their feet to keep from freezing!Txt to self: when I was little I always looked up to my neighbors like the kids did to TimOne question I have is:Did Tim ever deliver the letter?-Kristen!
Hey it is Kayla.I am literary luminary for chapters 7 and 8.I picked page 90 paagraphs 3 and 4 because it was interesting.I picked page 95 paragraph 3 because i thought it was worth remembering.My last one i picked is page 96 paragraph 3 because it was scary.Kayla
i was literary luminary in the orange group for chapter 7 and 8. (pg.85 to 113)on page 88 paragraph 6 i have a quetion. do you think sam is worried? do you think a mom should be able to communicate with her son?on page 90 paragraph 2 i thought it was mean for the father to say it so meanly to tim.page 95 paragraph 3. doesn't it make you interested and want you to read more?please reply: Aarohi
Hello, Im Valeria on the orange groups Artful artist for chapters 7 and 8. I picked the scene that is on pg. 95 and 96. It is the best emotional page ever.I picked it becvase this book is related to war and since the guns reminded me of war i picked this scene.The one question i have about the reading is why do you think this chapter started with a date : The summer of 1776? Sincerley,Valeria :)
Dear Alexa,I made pictures in my mind mostly on page 95, 96 and 97 because it was violent and very interesting.Kayla
Dear Amanda, First, I think they chop off the fish heads because they do not want to eat the eyes and all of that stuff. Second, I think the big idea of the teams are when you grow up, you might have to make a choice like that. Lastly, I am not sure if they will get hurt because of the snow. They might get frost bite, or they could be bundled up.From Abigail
kewwl!!!!! kayla!!!! what pictures did you make???????!!!!!thanks, alexa
Dear Abby,Do you think everyone knows about the war and thinks the samethings about it? For example -what we have learned about "Paul Revere's Ride" etc. Are there any other misconceptions out there your think we shuold address here?~Mrs. D.
Kristen i agree i would also want family members to write letters to me to.and i don't think he did deliver the letter because it was out of the envolope and it says that mr.heron did not ask so i am infering that it is not delivered.-Aarohi
Dear Alexa,Mostly the man trying to kill their father Life.Kayla
Dear Alexa,I am making pictures in may mind but only when the parts get intersting like when Betsy was tring to take the letter. I also picture things when he was going to Verplanck Point, I could see the little kids looking out the window and Tim showing off. Good question!Kristen!
Of course i have Alexa...\I had a big scene from page 95 and 96. read my artful artis point and that is why.REad it to find out.Valeria
dear kayla,nice.thanks, alexa
Dear Valeria, I do see why you chose this picture! Though it is not my favorite scene, is IS somewhat related to the war, with all of those weapons. I am eager to see what your picture will be, that is, if I get the chance to see.Abigail
Aarohi,Thanks for making that clear for me! It was confusing when the chapter ended and Tim was back at the tavern. Now it makes more sense.Thanks again!Kristen!
Alexa,I agree with Kayla -why is it worth remembering the last paragraphs of chapter 6? What do we need to remember or learn from that section?Does it add to the story overall? ~Mrs. D.
dear kristen,THANKS!!!! THAT!!! IS!!! SOOOO!!! NICE!!! OF!!! YOU!!! TO!!! SAY!!! MY!!!! QUESTION!!!! WAS!!! NICE!!! YOU ARE NICE TO!!!!!!!do you have a question???????thanks, alexa
Dear Aarohi,I think page 88 paragraph 6 is a great paragraph.I do think Sam is worried. Do you?Kayla
Alexa,May I remind you -you are being graded on the quality of your responses. This is not AIM. Please type in full sentences so we can all follow the conversation more easily. Thank you,Mrs. D.
Dear Mrs.D,I do think that everyone knows of the war, but I do not think they all think the same thing. Some people are tories, some are Patriots. Some people might want the war to keep giong, some might not. I do not think there are any misconceptions here that we should address right now.~ Abby
Kayla i do think sam is worried that he is not getting letters from his family.-Aarohi
Dear Aarohi,me too.Kayla
Dear Alexa,I agree with Mrs. D I couldn't read your last letter to me or your letters to anyone eles. I think you said something like thank you... I think.Kristen
Alexa i think eventualy tim will choose sides and i think he will choose to be a patriot. what do you think?-Aarohi
Dear Alexa,I agree with Kristen.That coment was confusing.Kayla
Well kristen I don't think that was nice so you should make sense to!!!angrily alexa
Alexa and Aarohi,I agree. I think Tim will choose to be a patriot because he always says he looks up to his brother. Why do you think he will become a patriot Aarohi?Kristen
Dear Angerly Alexa,I too agree with Kristen. This is not AIM. Not a lot of people can understand you. I can not follow your coversations with other people. Please write in complete sentances so I can UNDERSTAND~ Abigail
Kristen i think that he will be a patriot because the same reason you think. he looks up to his brother sam. so i completly agree with your resoning.- Aarohi
Dear Alexa,Its me matt from Guns for General washington. I have read summeries from my brother sam is dead and it sounds pretty good but you have to read Guns for General Washinton to know what are comments are about. Matt

Dear VAleria that last one was from meAmanda
KristenI totaly agree with you. I can see why you could not read that.Kayla
Dear amanda and valeriayou guys have different opinions it doesnt matter
that was from victoria
Dear Amanda you forgot to write your name in the last post you sent to me..?It was the best chapter eever. I think it was the best because i read it to my head and i made pictures of what i was reading in a quite room maybe you should read the chapter again and in a quite room too!From,Valeria
Dear, VictoriaMaybe we doent have diffrent opinions i think it's better if we would know and see what are the last results.From,VAleria
Dear KristenWhy do you not like chapter 11 and why did you think it was gross?\Valeria
I am discussion director for chaters 9 and 10.One of mine is... What would yo do if you were tim when his father got captured?please wrte back,kayla
Dear kristen sorry for the misunderstandingwhy so you think chapter 10 was gross?Valeria
I am word wizard for chapter 9 and 10. Woodlot pg.114 a small wooden section slogged pg.115 (not in dictionary) rumps pg.121 back part of body,where hip and thighs meet. shilling pg.129 an old british coin, 1/20 of a pound~ Aarohi
Dear, KaylaI would be crying as harder as his mother was.I would not live without my father.He supports me on everything.What would you do?VALeria
AarohiThose words are very interesting!!!Wouldn't it be cool if we got to see an old british coin.kayla
Dear Valeria,I would gp to my brother and tell him what happened.Then i would go to my grandparents house and tell them and try to find out all the informationKayla
Dear Aarohi,I very much agree with Kayla of thinking those words to be interesting.I have once seen a old british cold but it was old and rusty.Pieces were falling off and it was also not that big.Valeria
ValeriaThe end of chapter 10 is gross because neds head pops off and and there is a knife in his stomach.It was so bad that Tim trew up. I hope you read it because the last sentence is very important. It tells what side Tim is taking.~ Aarohi
Dear, KaylaI would do most of those things. but, i however don't have my grandparents near me at this moment.Valeria
I am discussion director for chapter 9 and 10.1)would you ber scared if you were alone and a posibilty of a cowboy snaeking up on you?2)Did anything surprise you when the father got captured?3)Do yiou think their mother over reacted when she found out their father got captured?Why?Kayla
Dear Aarohii did read the whole chapter 10.I will admitt it was kind of gross but i still think that that chapter is pretty important in the book.Valeria
Kayla If my dad got captured then I would panic and be very worried about him. maybe even start to cry because of that and because i am lost and want to be home.~ Aarohi
Dear Valeria,The comment you posted to Aarohi about chapter 10 is true i agree but i think it is more gross than you think.Kayla
Aarohi,It doesn't mean he is not going to be a Tory but it could. He doesn't say I'm not a Tory anymore he is just afraid of being a Tory beacause he might be killed. I would be afraid to what would you think if you where Tim???Kristen!
Dear Aarohi,Thatis also what i would do.Kayla
KaylaYOu guys shouldn't over react on that but i respect you because it's your opinion.Valeria
Dear Valeria,Thank you!Kayla
KaylaYou are Welcome!Valeria
AlexaCould you tell us about your job so we can reply and have a conversasion with you?~ Aarohi
Dear Aarohi,I agree with Kristen he could also decide to be a tory but there is a chance of both.We shold read the rest of the book and find out.kayla
Dear amanda,different people are in different places in the book you shouldnt be asking people where they are just to say oh im past you wayyyy past youVictoria
Dear Veronica, What did you think of this book and WHY?
Amandathe on e for veronica
Dear Valeria, What did you think of the book?Would you suggest it to anyone else?Did you like the story? (YES OR NO)Amanda
dear Amanda I think the book was good and sad because when the father was in jail and whn they found out that he was dead. your friend, Veronica
Dear Veronica, I agree with you because it was good and sad and also shocing at the end of the book!Amanda
I am connector for chapter 11 and 12.~On one of the pages it says that there was a hat with a feather in it. Like in the song "Yankee Doodle"~My sister is stubborn like Sam.I know i am not word wizard but on the way i found some words i did not know.pg.167 cholerapg.170 exchequerpg.180 munityCan word wizard find the defination for me?~ Aarohi
Dear Amanda, I tought that the book was really tragic and scarey at some moments. Actually, yes i would suggest it to somebody. I might think some of the war boys like william or gregory because of all the weapons but, i'm not sure becase of all the sad moments too. I liked the story but a few parts made me think as if i was in the story so, it was kind of scarey!sincerly,Valeria!
Dear Valeria,I agree with you too it was scary and I would also suggest it to Gregory and Willian too.Amanda
dear kayla Those were some good questions for chapter 9 and 10!!!! your friend, Veronica!!
Dear Everyone,What did you think of the book My Brother Sam Is Dead? Was it good or bad to YOU. Was it too gorey? Not enough? I personally liked the book most of the time. Now did you like the book or not?~ Abby
OMIGOD!!!!!I can not belive sam died!!!From the title I thought it just ment he was like in big trouble. "dead meat". But I don't think he deserved to die because he was just choosing the side he thought was right so the dad shouldn't of gotten angry at sam for being a patriot. Also I don't think he deserved to die because those people that framed him for steeling the cattle when he wasn't was not write.Do you think he deserved to die????????Alexa
Dear, Amanda and other pupils.I was discussion director for the orange/gold group.My first question was:1. Who would you suggest this book to? Why.?2. Do you think their would be another book or part? Why.?3. How do you feel about Sam dieing?.4. If you were Sam's mother would you let him stay in the war?.5. What were the emotions you felt while you read the book.?Valera!`*
Dear valeria those were great question for chapter 14 !!!!from veronica
I was literary luminary for chapter 13 and 14.pg.183 paragraph 1 Why does he laugh? It does sound like the truth.pg.184 prargraph 3 How do you think mother is feeling/thinking? why do you think that?pg.189 paragraph 7 how do you think they feel?My quetion was: what do you think would happen if the story went on 2 more pages?Please reply~ Aarohi
Dear Alexa,I actually thought the same thing about the title. It is hard to accept that he is dead, yes, but it was even not for a good cause. I mean, stealing his own cattle? No. He did not deserve to die.~ Abby
Dear Veronica,Thank you! Did you like the book?.Valeria
I am Word Wizard for page 146 to the end of the book.1)The word dwell is on page 167 and it means to live in a place.I picked it because it was interesting.2)I picked the word rumor because i have a connection to open circle.Page 172.It means general talk or doughtf7ul accuracy3)Enampment:It is a settle in a military camp.Page 190.I picked it bacause it was also ineresting.4)Bayonet means a weapon like a dagger made to fit in at the end of a rifle.Pagwe 203. I picked it because it was strange. Kayla
AlexaI don't think he deserved to die because it wasn't him but the general does not know that. when tim and mother went to tell them it wasn't him, of corse they won't belive it. Any one wants to save their brother/son.~ Aarohi
Hi it's Kristen.My Word Wizzard sheet is missing so if anyone sees it or has it please tell me. Thanks. WORDS:cholera pg. 167 (new) a dangerous infectious diseaseexchequer pg. 170 (new) seige pg. 171 (different)munity pg. 180 (new) Other definitions were not in my dictionary and I am out of time. Sorry.Kristen
Dear Aarohi,In your last comment you said the general doesn't know that Sam didn't do it (steal cattle) but he does. Tim went and told him and he said he would consider it but he didn't agree, he just wanted to make an exaple of someone. I also do agree with you it wasn't fair that they killed Sam, it wasn't that bad what he did (of didn't do).Kristen!
Dear Abby,I agree. I liked it most of the time but it was to gorey. Heads falling off and things like that aren't for me. Gregory would like it.KRisten
