Job 2: Connection Captain
When Artie was roller- skating with his friends, he skate came loose and he fell. He starts the book by saying “It was summer I remember I was ten or eleven. I was roller- skating with Howie and Steve. ‘Til my skate came loose.” When he fell, it reminded me of when my mom told me a story about when she fell when she was rollerblading. She had been roller- skating most of her life and this was the first time she was using roller blades. She tried to use the brakes on her roller blades and leaned forward because on roller- skates the brakes are in the front. So my mom leaned forward and she fell and hurt herself.
When Vladek was telling his story about when in 1939 he fought in a war, he said that his country was fighting against Germany. When Vladek said “We were all dug into trenches near a river. On the other side it was Germans.” This part reminded me of when I lived in Germany. It reminded me of going to school, Berlin International School (BIS), and having German class instead of Portuguese. It reminded me of the time I hit my head on a branch during recess. It reminded me of the winters with snow storms.
This picture is a picture of my school in Germany that I mentioned earlier (Berlin International School (BIS)). I lived in Germany for 3 and a half years. I went to BIS for 2 years. I don’t remember a lot because I was only 5 or 6 but from what I do remember, my experience there was really good.
