What would an example journal entry look like? Here’s one for imaginary PeteStudent#24:

For “Hobbit Journal Topic #2” I wrote:

  1. Do hobbits ever wear shoes for, like, going to parties and stuff?
  2. How long can hobbits live?
  3. Where do hobbits live?

Esther Sparhawk answered my last question:

PeteStudent#24: Bilbo and many other hobbits live in underground houses, in a place called the “Shire”. It says so in the book.

  1. i choose Autumn’s side of the story and she wrote

    I choose Dori’s side of the story.

    As I was running away from the goblins with Bilbo on my back a goblin reaced out and grabbed my legs making me fall. I let go of Mr. Baggins as we both fell onto the dark floors of the cave. Goblins were fighting, my fellow dwarves and i were falling over bodies and bumping into one another. Gandalf almost slashed my head of with is sword Glamdring. Then there was a bright flash. Once I could see again I saw goblins were retreating and screeching. Gandalf yelled to follow him and that is exactly what I did. I just assumed that all of our group were following. I did not have time to count how if we had all of our people back in our group as we were running to the gates. As we raced through the gates that is when i noticed that I had lost Mr. Baggins.

    what she did good is…

    ☺ she has very great detail and knows how to tell a story
    ☺ she rembered the name of the sword which is good
    ☺ and she rembers what they did like screaming or a noise that they make she does not leave out nuch at all
    ☺ and she rembered to put whos side of the story it was

    things she need s to work on is…

    ☺ she did not capitilize the word I as in her in some
    ☺ places and in some places i thinks she need cammas

    but over all she had a very good story good job Auti. ♥

    Smiley faces for bullets? How inventive!

    molly whuppie uses repitition
    ☺ molly tricked the giant and took his things and he never got her cause he would not cross the bridge of hair
    ☺ molly is the shotest and the youngest so she is like a dwarf
    ☺ in the book there was a trick played so they are alike in that way

    Your journal entry needs to explain these things better:
    What is repeated in “Molly Whuppie”? Does someone say something over and over again? What is said? Also, what trick is played in The Hobbit?

  2. Hobbit Topic #14
    I choose the conflict when they come to an enchanted river and can travel no further without some means to cross.

    They reach the enchanted river and decide that the only way to make it across is by making so type of raft… (the original one in the story is not there.) They gather some logs and line them up together. Then they use the rope that they originally use to hook the other other boat to tie the logs together… Next they find thick, strong pieces of bark to use as oars… The raft successfully gets them to the other side in a sigle trip and they continue the rest of their adventure.

    A) They need to find something to use or do to cross the enchanted river.
    B) They use logs and rope to build a raft.
    C) The boat that was on the other side is not there.

    *REPLY*
    Please re-do this, using the terms “conflict” and “resolution” in your response. You’re welcome to copy/paste what you have here and just type in the necessary literary terms. Thank you.

    I chose Kalems story
As we were running though the tunnels I heard a yelp, and then I saw a flash. In that moment time slowed. I could see the goblins coming step by step, as if walking. I pulled the sword from its sheath, the sound of metal on metal ringing in my ears. As I lunged for one of the goblins I tripped on something soft. As I fell I heard a cry and felt something scurrying away under my hand and sword. The next thing I knew was the sound of the strong and commanding voice of Gandolf saying to follow. We ran for hours on end following what seemed like a small floating ball of light, which we all knew to be as Gandolf’s staff. Before we had arrived at the lower gate the goblins had already smelled us and were heading our way. When we met up with them, the goblins were so spread out that we picked them off enough to get through the gate. While jogging our boots’ scraped along the dirt and gravel path in the mountain air. I looked back, seeing we did not have Bilbo Baggins.
    what kalem did well is he remembered to put punctuation in his story.
2. another thing that kalem did well is he told the side of his story well and with detail.
3. the final thing that kalem did well was he used description to tell how the goblins found them in the tunnel.
the things that kalem did incorrectly
1. He skipped from one part of the story to another.
2. He used wrong punctuation in parts of his story.
3. He kind of retold the story and what the book already said. he should Fantasy is literature written by using magic or supernatural phenomena.

    they use this in the plot, theme, or the setting. Some examples of fantasy is like the Goosebumps series, they are fantasy. came up with some creative scenes that he made up.
Good job
    No, JC Student #14, I think the Goosebumps series are considered MYSTERIES, because they solve crimes and/or mysterious situations like ghost sightings. A fantasy novel is going to have more dragons, wizards, unicorns, fairies, and other magical things. Ghosts are considered supernatural, but not typically an element of fantasy, which leans more toward the MAGICAL.Fantasy is literature written by using magic or supernatural phenomena. they use this in the plot, theme, or the setting.

    Bilbo: Um…

    Bilbo: Yes! My creator.

    Amy: So you’re the hairy dude.

    Bilbo: Sure?

    Amy: Where are you then?

    Bilbo: I’m stuck in a tree, and I need a map of the Middle Earth. But you’re just a giant, so I guess you wouldn’t…

    Amy: Well like… I have one right here. So what do you need to know?

    Bilbo: Well first off, how much farther until I get outta the forest?

    Amy: Well, have you passed any weird spider-looking things yet?

    Bilbo: We’re kind of close to them.

    Amy: And there’s sort of a hill in the way, right? And you’re supposed to be looking over the branches?

    Bilbo: Yuppy guppy.

    Amy: Well on my map, I see a bunch of spiders with a bunch of webs, too. So you must be near there, so you must go directly East to get out of the forest. Because you see, if you look northeast, or maybe even north, you might be able to see the Elven King’s halls.

    Bilbo: Er… sure?

    Amy: You following me, Baggins?

    Bilbo: Um, no.

    Amy: Just go East. Climb down the tree, and look away from where the webs are, as in the opposite direction. Go straight, and see if that takes you to the end of the forest. You can do it!

    And on another journal I wrote:

    1. The things I remember about Mirkwood from the story are:
    *Mirkwood is on the eastern side of the Misty Mountains.
    *Before the dwarves get into Mirkwood, they have to pass the edge of the wild or something like that.
    *There is a dreary forest when they first arrive; it is very dark, and when they sleep and take turns standing gaurd, there are creepy eyes that stare at them throughout the night.
    And according to the book:
    *There is forest surrounding Mirkwood, all the way around.
    *The dwarves cannot have their ponies accompany them in their journey in the forest of Mirkwood.
    *They could not eat much in Mirkwood, for they only had a small amount of provisions there.
    *There is a small water crossing that they must use a boat to cross, but when Bombur falls in, he falls asleep, so they do not drink the water from that water.

    We didn’t have any magical beings such as wizards, dwarfs, hobbits, dragons, or trolls. These fairy tale beings were made up to either amuse or scare children.

    When the Wargs chase them up a tree.
    Bilbo will be changed into a Warg Whisperer
    Everyone was being chased by scary mean looking wargs and there was no where to go but Mr.Bilbo Baggins came in and sat down and talked to the wargs
    Bilbo:Why you beautiful looking wargs what must you want on a lovely evening like such??
    Head warg(Willy): All we want to do is eat dwarves and go on with this so called lovely evening,now move over and let me eat! demanded Willy.
    Bilbo: Why you musn’t want to eat these dwarves!
    Willy: Well why not??
    Bilbo: Well because… they do not taste good at all they are chewy and very fattening and by the look of your body you eat very healthy and these dwarves here just aren’t for you!
    Willy: Well I do eat quite healthy but I am still starving!
    Bilbo: I know just the thing!
    Willy: And what might this be?
    Bilbo: Just about half a mile down that old path there should be Goblins coming for us and they tase soooo good there nice and juicy. So if you just start heading that way you will soon meet up with them in no less than ten minutes and you will have a much better meal!
    Willy: Why thank you sir! We will be on our way.
    Bilbo: Anytime glad I could help!
    CONFLICT: Bilbo and the dwarves are being chased by wargs.
    RESOLUTION: Bilbo talks the wargs into going back and eating the goblins.

  8. For Hobbit Journal # 8 I wrote:

    I have choosen Gandalf…

    All the sudden, multiple gobblins came rushing towards us with anger and yelling. They sang horrible songs, and there was fire near my tree. After a few seconds, the flames reached the bark and my tree was on fire. So I climbed up to the top of it, then my wand flashed, it seemed like lighting. Then out of no where, the Lord of the Eagles swooped down and saved me from the fatal coincedence and took me to refuge.

    I pick the Goblins’ Underground Cave.
    From my memory…

    2:A lot of goblins lived there.

    From the book…
    1:The tunnel/cave was very long.

  9. In The Hobbit Journal Topic #10
    *1. “The Three Billy Goats Gruff” uses repetition.
    *2. Three goats want to cross a bridge to get to the green hill on the other side. The smallest of the three goats crosses the bridge and is immediately threatened to be gobbled up. The same happens with the other two goats.
    *3. In “The Hobbit”, the evil gobblins reminds me of the gobblin in “Three Billy Goats Gruff”
    *4. “The Three Billy Goats Gruff” is different from J.R.R. Tolkien’s story “The Hobbit” because in The Hobbit there are many gobblins that live in a cave, instead of under a bridge, and they eat dwarves and other meat, instead of just eating goats.

    Esther Sparhawk | December 9, 2010 at 7:19 pm | Reply
    You know, Megahn Student#5, I almost used “The Three Billy Goats Gruff” for my example, because it does exemplify repetition and the grotesque antagonists (i.e. goblins/trolls) so well. But note, on your #3, you call the villain in “The Three Billy Goats Gruff” a “goblin” when he was actually a troll. Furthermore, trolls appear in one of the early scenes in The Hobbit too.

    In Hobbit Journal #15, you asked us to look through our comments that we have posted in the past, copy and paste to this journal so we can learn all we can from Mrs. Sparhawk and our classmates. The problem is, you’ve only commented once on all of my journals. I wanted to wait, but I was afraid I would get deducted the points from not posting in time. Sorrie! Only got one. Thankss(:

Now these weren’t just your regular 60 foot tall monsters that like to eat Haley. No,no,no,no, these were 61 foot JELLO MONSTERS! Jello monsters are very dangerous and they like to eat people named Bilbo and whoever is traveling with him through the Black Forest of Mirkwood. Bilbo and the dwarves were very frightened, but then Kili had and idea. He said why don’t we eat them before they eat us. So they hate the Jello Monster.

    Kalem: Hello who is this?

    Bilbo: Whoa where did that noise come from?

    Kalem: Ummm, the cell phone in your hand you probably have it on speaker.

    Bilbo: Oh, well then Bilbo Baggins at your service.

    Kalem: Oh your the hobbit in the book I am reading.

    Bilbo: Me in a book, like the ones I would read in my hole between first and second breakfast?

    Kalem: Well I guess it would be that type of book.

    Bilbo: Oh I wish I was was back in my hole with a full stomach… Wait If I am in a book then there must be a map or might you know if we ever get our of this dreadful forest?

    Kalem: Now that you have mentioned it I remember there is a map in the book. OK I found it you are actually not far from the end of the forest. You just can’t see it because you are in a large valley. There is also great forest spiders not far from you and the only way to get past them is to… Beep Beep oh I have another call I have to go bye.

    Bilbo: Wait wait! How do you get past the spiders?

    Alright DerekStudent#9! That’s a fantastic description (both your own and the one from the book)!

    2. “You can’t catch me, I’m the Ginger Bread Man.”
    3.There are wolves trying to catch food in both stories.

    This is one of the best responses I’ve seen. It’s short, but very precise. Nobody can argue with your #4!
