Review: Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea

What is the name of your favorite teacher? I am spoilt because almost all of my teachers are and have been very nice. But there is one teacher in particular that I like the most because she is very kind, stays calm in any situation, motivates her students to give their best and is also fun.

This book is also about a great teacher.

Review: Waste of Space by Stuart Gibbs

I hope you all had a great Christmas break. Happy new year! Welcome 2021!

2020 was not the greatest year, but this quote I wanted to share, because it is a very good explanation of last year: “There is always a light at the end of the tunnel.” I personally found 2020 pretty good except Corona/Covid-19 of course. The virus also had good things to it – like everyone learned to have more responsibility than normal and we learned a lot about technology, whether at distance schooling or work. It was also very nice to have more time with my family and of course I had loads of time to read.

My motto for 2021 is: #1 Stay positive. #2 Be respectful to everyone.

Because of the virus we didn’t go away during the break and we only went out to play tennis or to go for walks or biking – so I spent pretty much time inside reading. This book my parents got me as a present on Christmas eve. After reading the Funjungle and Spy School novels and also part of the Moon Base Alpha series, I have to say this book is the best book Stuart Gibbs ever created! I loved it a lot and I got into trouble a couple of times because it was so hard to stop reading to have family dinner or lunch or breakfast or what so ever. I pretty much read it in one go because it was soooo good.

History research: World War II and the persecution of jews

In light of Veterans Day we talked about World War II and how the Nazis killed so many jewish people at school.  This made me very sad and I thought it would be a good idea to do some additional research on that topic.

Taking a Halloween break

Hi everyone! The last days have been very packed. My first week of going to my new school in person, getting used to online teaching although sitting in a class room (it does sound strange, doesn’t it???), meeting new class mates and so much more. It was kind of overwhelming and I did not manage to get my head around writing a review. I went through quite some books though and I have a lot to share with you in the next few weeks.

Hope you all enjoyed a nice Halloween with your families. Talk soon!
Yours Oscar
