Memoirs of a Goldfish - Page Text Content

FC: Erin Zihlman-Pack EDUC 3482.01 Module 5: Activity 1 Dr. Sourdot 29 March 2012

1: About the Book! The Goldfish loves swimming around in his bowl once. He loves swimming around so much, he does it a second time. The Goldfish is content in his own personal space. Just as the Goldfish is getting comfortable, a diver figurine that is full of bubbles and no words makes his way in the fish bowl. All of the sudden more neighbors appear. A few plants, Fred who is a very crabby crab, a couple of guppies, and a big angel fish named Cha Cha.

2: About this Book Continued... There is not enough room for the Goldfish to swim which frustrates the Goldfish. The Goldfish expresses what he is going through over a 14 day period. In the end the Goldfish is back to his very own bowl. However, the Goldfish surprisingly misses his former neighbors. They all reunite is a much bigger and better aquarium.

3: A memoir is an autobiography that takes place over a period of time. The students will learn and understand what a memoir is and practice doing journal entries.The journal entries can be from the point of view of any or all characters in the story or from the students' own life experiences.

4: Directions: I want you to start your journal entries over a 14 day period. Your entries can be about the emotions any of the characters from the story are feeling. You may choose one or all characters to write about. You may also write about yourself. Tell me what your highs and lows of the day are and how to deal with any challenges you are facing. You will create a username and password in class. There will be designated times during the class day that you will be able to add your entries. Do not forget to include the date of each entry. Have fun and really try to connect with the emotions the characters or yourself are feeling. You will also be able to view your peers' work. Be creative and enjoy this activity! | Journal Entries!
