Civil War Letter.

Dear Family, Its 1863 May 5th I'm Helping The Confederate State.

The Civil War Is Going On And On I'm Working In The War I'm A Nurse I Said To The People "While Our Soldiers Stand And Fight, I Can Stand And Feed And Nurse Them.

And I'm Trying To Do Everything That I Can To Help Them Like Make Clothes,Shoes And Spare Food That Any Armies Have.

And The Life During The War Was Very Hard For Soldiers Because When There Guns Didn't Have Anymore Powder They Had To Refill It Even If They Were In War They Couldn't Stop The War Just To Refill The Gun

From Andrea,

                        Love You,

The Lightning Thief Final Blog.

The Movie And The Book Are Very Different But The Book Was Better Then The Movie. The Book Was Better Because It Had More Action And Awesome Things Like Ares And Percy Fighting.
The Movie Is Very Very VERY Different Because Some Parts That Happen In The Book Never Happened In The Movie.
I Loved Everything About The Book And The Movie It's Very Exciting And Adventuress. In The Whole Movie It Was Awesome The Book The Same. Some Of The Parts Are Very The Same Both In The Movie And The Book.

I Would Change When Ever Percy,Annabeth And Grover Went To Hades And Percy Asking For His Mom And Everything Hades Telling Percy To Give His Helm And The Lightning Bolt. I Would Change Some Of That Part Like Different.
Like Hades Would Say "Percy Jackson Son Of Poseidon You Stole My Helm Now You Will Pay".
And Percy Will Say "Not With Out A Fight Even If Your My Uncle"!!!

And Then They Start Fight And Percy Wins He Gets His Mother And Both Of Items.
That's All :]

Percy’s choice. Write a paragraph defending or attacking Percy’s choice to leave Camp Half-Blood for the school year. Is it wise? Why or why not?


Um....I Would Attack Percy's Choice To Leave. Its Not Wise Because If He goes Back Then Monsters Will Attack Him When He Goes Somewhere Even If He Knows How To Fight But Still I Would Stay At Camp Just To Be Trained One More Year Or Something Else.
