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

Own story: The earthquake that changed my life by Oscar

This story is for my favorite teacher. Friday was my last day at my old school and so I wrote a story to thank her for being the worlds best teacher ever. And here it goes:

One morning I woke up and ate my breakfast. We always had our radio on when we ate.

So, what is it all about?
Auggie is new at middle school. Before he was home schooled because he looked like he was in a terrible fire. Which he wasn’t. He was just born that way. He had to take 24 surgeries.

Review: The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q. Rauf

There used to be a free desk in the class room and then Ahmet came.
He was a very serious, shy and quiet guy but Alexa and her friends Josie, Tom and Michael made him feel welcome.

Review: Max the Detective Cat – The Disappearing Diva by Sarah Todd Taylor

The fluffy, groomed cat Maximilian was used to live in the “most fashionable townhouse in London.” Sitting on a comfortable, red cushion and having only the best of the best food a cat can eat.

I liked the book because it is a book about friendship. Maximilian didn’t give up and although he was sad at the beginning of the story when he lost his home but he was all happy again in the end. What I didn’t like was that Countess Arlington wanted to drown Max. I found that a bit rough and not necessary.

I would recommend the book for kids 8 years and older. It has 196 pages and is not so hard to read. Rating: 8/10
