Get Ready for 1/11: Soul Surfing Games & Movie Night at Westhampton

While reading “Soul Surfer,” what themes did you notice?  What messages is Bethany trying to share with her audience?  Post about it!

One theme I noticed and liked is that of helping each other.  For example, after the devastating tsunami in Thailand, she is right there trying to help out.  After her encounter with the shark, she turns that tragedy around into a way to reach out to other people.  Browse around her website, http://bethanyhamilton.com/, and you’ll see other examples of her working to help numerous causes.

How about you?  How can you help?  Are you part of our school’s EarlyAct club?  Do you volunteer anywhere?  Did you know even your choices of where you shop and which Internet games  you play can make a difference?  Try out the games Free Rice or Answer 4 Earth and for every correct answer, a donation is made towards the cause.

Happy posting, playing, and I’ll see you tonight for the movie!

Get Ready for 1/4: Soul Surfer Symbols

Symbols abound in Soul Surfer, starting immediately with the title:  Why do you think Bethany Hamilton’s journey was entitled Soul Surfer?  What does that symbolize?  Talk about it with your classmates and leave a comment with your ideas!

Feeling artistic?  The world of professional surfing is funded through product endorsements from companies such as Rip Curl and Quick Silver.  They all have their unique and recognizable branding symbols.  Your challenge:  Create your own brand’s symbol.  Think about what your icon can symbolize about you.  Then make it happen.  Want to work on your Mac?  You can create a drawing in your Google Drive account and then share it with Ms. Andria to post up on our blog.  Prefer working with print?  Use the library’s art supplies and doodle away.  We can scan your illustration if you want to post it on the blog.
