Maus Activity Part 2

Heylo guys so I’m back to do the second part of the assignment for the book Maus.

Write an overall impression of what Vladek went through in Auschwitz and how it changed him. How has it affected Artie and Francoise?

Vladek went through a lot in Auschwitz. He struggled a lot there but it made him who he is. His time in Auschwitz is a big part of his life. Vladek stayed the caring, kind, helping man he was. As a Jew, he was worth nothing so he had to become resourceful to make a living. Some of his talents also showed because he would help the people in Auschwitz and get food, better clothes and wouldn’t have to struggle and eventually die. This didn’t really affect Francoise but it did affect Artie. He felt depressed and sad that he didn’t get to listen to his mothers side.

Well, my class has finally finished reading the two books and I have to say I quiet like it. Thank you to Mr.Hays^. Also you guys should give this Book a try, it’s amazing! I am very sad for all the people who died due to the war, you could call it between the Jews and Germans!
Anyways…that is all for this blog post, See ya next time^💕👋

Maus Activity Part 1

Hello everyone…so today I have a class assignment! I read a graphic memoir called Maus and I have chapter questions that I have to answer so lets just get right into it.

Chapter 1

Why does Art Spiegelman use mice instead of people to portray the characters in the story? What do the mice represent?

  • He used mice instead of people to hid their identity from the people.
  • The mice represent the Jews.

Chapter 2

Why does Ms.Stefanska go to jail? What role did Anja play in Ms.Stefanska going to jail?

  • Ms. Stefanska went to jail because she hid some comunist papers.
  • The role that Anja played was that she was the one who gave her the papers and told her to hide it.

Chapter 3

What does Vladek mean on page 50, when he says, “Well at least I did something.” Do you believe that he is justified in feeling this way? Explain.

  • Vladek means that killing one of the Nazi’s men, he did some what of a service and didn’t leave the body.
  • I don’t think he’s justified in feeling this way because he did after all kill someone.

Chapter 4

Although Jews were allowed only limited rations under the Nazi occupation, Vladek manages to circumvent these restrictions for a while. What methods does he use to support himself and his family?

  • He sells clothes and uses jewelry to get food and looks for jobs.

Chapter 5

How did Vladek care for Anja after the destruction of the Srodula ghetto? Contrast his behavior toward his first wife, during the worst years of the war, with the way he now treats Mala.

  • Vladek treated Anja very kindly after the destruction of the Srodula ghetto. He was supportive and treated her with great care. Vladek didn’t treat Mala well and blamed her for lots of the problems.

Chapter 6

Why does Artie call his father a murderer? Is he justified? Who else has he called a murderer, and why?

  • Artie called his father a  murderer because he burned Anja’s (his mother) diaries.
  • He is justified because that was the only way he could have known about his mother and her conditions

 

 

 

Stargirl!

Hello peeps, How is it going? So this week I am back with another book review and the book is Stargirl…..I honestly love love love this book! Its one of my favorites and I will say this for sure that you have to grab a copy 🙂 Anyways lets go on to the review……

Author: Jerry Spinelli

Setting: Mica High school

Summary

Stargirl (main character) left homeschooling and went to a real public school for tenth grade in Arizona. When she got to the school, students kind of hated her. She was always happy, outgoing, full of enthusiasm. She carried a Ukele which she would sing “Happy birthday” to people and had a pet rat named Cinnamon. The students thought that she was fake. They only liked her when she cheered for their football team. She also cheered for the opposing team and the school didn’t like that and it turned the school against her. Leo (being dumb) told Stargirl to change and be like everyone else because the school didn’t like them……Leo is a guy in the school that Stargirl is dating. She changes herself but……..Haha you have to read the book to find out 😉

At the end of this book she leaves the state.

There is a second book for this novel so guess who will be doing a book review on that next haha Mee! 🙂

This book is very cute and just full of life….I really how it talks about Stargirl being different which is a good thing…..You don’t always have to be like everyone else! Really appreciate the message this book gives out.

Author: Colleen  Houck

Over View (Back of the book)

Passion. Fate. Loyalty.

Would you risk it all to change your destiny?

The last thing Kelsey Hayes thought she’d be doing this summer was trying to break a 300-year-old Indian Curse. With a mysterious white tiger named Ren. Halfway around the world.

But that’s exactly what happened.

Face-to-face with dark forces, spellbinding magic, and mystical worlds where nothing is what it seems, Kelsey risks everything to piece together an ancient prophecy that could break the curse forever.

Plot

The main event of the book is that Kelsey goes through an adventure to solve a Indian mystery! She faces many obstacles and since this is the first volume in the series it’s not really completed. So you have to read to find out if she solves it or if something else happens?

Characters

The Characters of this book are: Kelsey Hayes, Ren, Kishan, Durga, Damon, Yesubai, Anik Kadam, Nilima Mehta, Mr. Kadam, Mr. Davis.

Conclusion

I like this book because it is very adventurous and it takes you on an great adventure with Kelsey and it is very well written. I don’t really dislike this book, it is good overrall. Plus this is a series so it’s exciting to see what will happen next! 😉

What I cherish?

I cherish a lot of things but most importantly friends and family. Friends are just always there when you need them and you can trust them. You can tell them your secrets and have fun, they will always support you.I cherish my family because well there my family and they support me through everything. Family and Friends are just the one thing that every needs. They are definately what I cherish.
I cherish Friends for a lot of reasons which are that they are always supportive , they never deny to help you, you will always make friends no matter how young or old you are . I honestly have a great friends. They are always there when I need them and they have always understood me. Friends are just loyal and they do the best things for me. These are the reasons why I cherish Friends.
I cherish my family because they are the one thing that everyone has and they will always do the best things that are appropriate for me. My parents and my siblings or if it is just my grandparents or uncles, no matter how they relate me they have always done something good for me. For example: my parents make sure I get education and they taught me to always do the right thing, respect and always help others. Friends and family are just great and I also cherish them for one more reason, because of the fact that your family members can also be your friends and your friends can also be your family. They don’t just have to be blood related to be like your family.

Hello again, so we were assigned to make 3 paragraphs of what are the things we cherish and post in our blogs and that’s what I’ve done.
Thank you for reading this ^_^ see ya next time!
