Dewey's Read-a-Thon: Page 35, 3rd sentence
Our challenge his hour was to turn to page 35 of our current read and use the 3rd sentence on that page to be the beginning sentence in a new story/poem/etc. that we create ourselves. Here is what I came up with:
I am reading The Space Between by Diana Gabaldon. Page 35(ish – on an e-reader), 3rd sentence is:
“Oui?” Sister Eustacia took the note with the same care with which it was proffered.
Here’s my writing:
“Oui?” Sister Eustacia took the note with the same care with which it was proffered. “I see we are passing notes again instead of completing your French lesson. Well, Mr. Jacob, let’s just see what was so important that you had to cause a disturbance within the entire classroom.” Sister Eustacia walks to the front of the classroom, stopping at the very front. As every eye looks her way, she proceeds to unfold the note and without looking at it herself, holds the paper above her head for everyone to see.
The entire room begins to laugh, giving Sister Eustacia the feeling that the joke is on her. Upon further review, the sister realizes that the paper is completely blank. “What is the meaning of this, Mr. Jacob?”
“Absolutely nothing! Renee asked for a piece of paper to finish her lesson and I was just passing her a blank piece. Ne pas sauter aux conclusions trop rapidement. You might not want to jump to conclusions too quickly, Sister Eustacia!”
