The Strange Case of Origami YODA

The Strange Case of Origami YODA
Origami Yoda #1

Book Report by Emiline
    The force is in one special school with ... a paper Yoda!?!   Anyway, origami Yoda was funny, crazy, and great!! So were the characters: Tommy was nice. Dwight was funny and weird. Harvey was, well, just mean. People heard about origami Yoda because of, you know, gossip.  Well, soon enough every one was asking origami Yoda about random stuff and he was always right.  Everyone wrote down adventures with origami Yoda in Tommy’s notebook. Surprisingly it was a setup for the boys, Tommy and Dwight, to get girls—because they’re nerds.  But then how did Origami Yoda tell the future ???   Is it just Dwight’s hand or is it really the force?  Find out in Origami Yoda.

My Book Report for The Strange Case of Origami YODA
By Marsh

Tommy is gathering information to see if Origami Yoda can tell the future or not.  Origami Yoda is a finger puppet that is used by a middle-schooler named Dwight.  The students of McQuarrie Middle School’s seventh grade believe that Origami Yoda might be able to tell the future.

       Tommy needs to prove that Origami Yoda can tell the future so, if he asks a girl out to the dance, he won’t make a fool of himself.
       I think Origami Yoda is a great book for all people who like Star Wars.  It is jam-packed with humor.  I liked how it was so descriptive.  If you like this book, don’t miss book two, Darth Paper Strikes Back. It is coming soon.  I think it will be great, like the first book. I give Origami YODA five monsters.

  1. Bre...I mean Marshall and Mey, oh, I mean Emiline,

    I want the two of you to know that I checked this a few times, and SILLY ME, I did not know I could comment (Well, I thought you had to be a member and I don't have a membership card. I figured it out)!! I am not a master blogger, but you two are. I have read every report and watched every clip. I want you guys to know that you ROCK!! We no longer have AR at school... YEA!! So, we are going to try to do more fun ways to do book reports, and since the two of you are the masters, I will just sit back and drink coffee while letting the two of you teach my classes. Maybe I'll run out and get a massage or a pedicure while you guys take over? Will that be ok? Thanks in advance.

    Seriously, this has been amazing to read. I forwarded the link to Mrs. Pajerski, Mrs. Tidwell, and Mrs. Gravitt. There is no way I would keep this kind of rocking hard work to myself! I can't wait to see you. We have a great new Horizons room, and we will have so very much fun this year. (especially since I get to sit around and drink coffee and all)...

    I love you two very, very much!!
    Mrs. Snook

  2. Haha, but you teach Horizons much better than we could. You could just show some classes the blog and then drink some coffee! Cant wait to see you for Horizons. Do we have to turn in book reports if a monster eats it?

    <3 you too!

  3. Marsh and Emiline,

    That was so much fun! I loved it and so did Gabe and Graydon! Keep up the good work, we're going to get The Strange Case of Origami Yoda today!

  4. Hey libit and theGs-

    Thank you so much. You'll love the book! Lets eat Texas Firecrackers and watch bears soon. I can hold the pan while you pack the luggage in the cars. Hope to see you soon!

  5. Um, Marsh and Emiline,
    The answer is yes. You will have to turn in a book report even if a monster eats it. I guess you should continue to blog them. It's a little harder for a monster to eat a computer...or for that matter, the whole internet!!

    It was good to see you today. I can't wait for this year. And I just watched all of your videos AGAIN!! Hugs...

    The Best Horizons Teacher EVER!!

  6. So, what if a monster does eat the computer? Or, what if there's computer zombie virus?

    Well, as much as we would like to have a normal school year, the blog is fun even though monsters always eat our book reports.

    See you soon,
    The Best Bloggers EVER!!!

  7. How fun!! I hadn't seen this book before. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!!
