Chase's blog Lyda's core 4


Okay so this is our island . The name of the island is Scroggszilla .My island is very different . Our island has a place for shelter , a place for food and a place for protection . What dangers do you see as a person stranded on this deserted island. Be specific and explain your answers? I honestly don't really see any danger to this island .This island has everything you need to survive.

Create a list of characters from the novel The Lord of the Flies and add details about them using textual evidence from the novel.

Ralph : fair (8), 12 years old (10), arrogant (didn't ask Piggy his name (11))

Piggy: they call him fat boy (8), tells ralph his name is piggy and tells him not to tell anyone (11)

Jack: likes to be alone (20) hes smart (21) broad and happy at beginnig(21)

Simon:faint ,skinny ,black hair (25)

Sam and Eric: twins (19) two headed (19)chunky (19)

Roger: dark boy (22) he was slight or slim (22)

Type the rules we created as a classroom from the board. This is something we will return to. In the meantime, pick the rule you find most important (from the ones we created) and explain why that rule, above all others is most important on this island.


1,Travel in 2 people or more

2, Don't go out at night ;)

3, Share resources

4, Clean up after yourself

5, Communicate effectively

6, Do your job

7, Do not kill each other. I think number 2 is the most important. Especially when you are on a stranded island as kids always travel in groups of 2 or more. There are so many ways you can prevent danger. All 7 of these rules are really good to follow!

One of the themes of this novel is survival. Explain why the setting of this story adds to or contributes to the theme.

They are on an island with no people and no adults I would be freaking out to. There young kids how would they know what to do. Be happy with what you have and work with what you have .

Symbols are physical things that represent abstract ideas. The following are some of the symbols from the novel The Lord of the Flies.

The boys use smoke to try and signal planes above to come help them . Sam and Eric were supposed to be watching the fire but they were not ,so it went out this is a good example of do what you are told to do. Be happy with what you have and work with what you have .

green | yellow

meat | temptation

conch | law and order

Piggy's glasses | survival

painted faces | anonymity

Simon | goodness

The island | civilization

Smoke | rescue

Platform | democracy

Piggy | isolation

Describe the Beast that seems to be stalking the island. Use the text as backup for your information.

In the book there is a mysterious creature that the boys have called "Beast". In the book the author uses description word/ hints on how the beast appears. In the 6th chapter Eric and Sam are keeping up with the fire when they think the see the beast. The boys describe the beast to be huge with teeth, eyes, claws, and wings. The boys don't know exactly were the beast lives.

Retell in your own words what has happened to Simon. Use textual evidence to help you create a vivid paragraph.

a group of the boys walked up the mountian . Simon was trying to go down the hill and his knees were giving out .so he fell and went out in the sea

"which is better - to have and agree to hunt and kill ?"Using this quote, take a stand. Pick a side and explain why your decision is best on this island here at the end of Chapter 11. Don’t forget to use textual evidence to support your answer.

have a great 8th grade year ;)

Dear 2017-2018 students , Mrs Lyda is the best teacher ever. I have loved this year with her , hopefully you will too. She has helped me so much this year. So at the end of the year you will read a novel called lord of the flies. When we first started this novel I honestly did not like it but once you get farther in the book you will like it much more. Their's some stuff in this novel that you would never expect. When you first read it you will probably be lost . But over all its a very good novel. The first novel that we read is the outsiders. To be honest the adobe spark assignment was a good idea because you could see how good we do with the electronics and how we write ,I know I'm not the best writer in the world but i try to do as good as I can. I really like when you read to us because it put a real sense to the book. The best part of the novel for me is when Ralph realizes how dirty he really is and hes like I really need a bath and a haircut.
