ISH page 6,7

“Marisol, his sister, was watching him. What do YOU want? He snapped”

“I was watching you draw,” she said.

Ramon sneered. “I’m NOT drawing! Go away!”

Marisol ran away, but not before picking up a crumpled sheet of paper.

“Hey! Come back here with that!”

Ramon raced after Marisol, up the hall and into her room.

From just reading the words (above)

What emotion do you think Ramon is expressing?

Ramon is feeling angry ,frustrated,annoyed at his sister because she took his drawing.  Or maybe she was trying to be helpful but Ramon wanted to be left alone.

What emotion do you think Marisol is expressing?

She might have been feeling helpful.

What COLOUR do you think the page will have?

Explain why?

Maybe the colour will be red because Ramon is angry and he doesn't want anyone to talk to him.  Or it could be purple too,too show that Ramon is sad.


Ramon does not look too happy in the PICTURE

What do you think he is feeling? What can you see in the PICTURE that lets you know that?

Ramon looks mad in the picture.  Also he looks a bit confused.

What colour is used on this page?

Yellow maybe because his sister is happy with his pictures but ramon is not so the yellow colour might be used for his sister.

What did that colour represent on pages one two and three?

The colours used were yellow and purple.  The yellow stands for happiness and the purple stands for how the bins were smelly.

What do you think the colour represents here?

The colour represents happiness but the blue on the ground might stand for his drawing and how bad they are.

Making links

What do you think Ramon thinks about his drawings?

How do you know? (was it something he said? did?)

He used to think his drawings were good but now he thinks that they are not good enough because he put his pencil down and said that he was done with drawing.  Also he tried to make his drawings look right but he never did.

ISH page 8

“He was about to yell but fell silent when he saw his sister’s walls…

He stared at the crumpled gallery.”

From just reading the words (above)

What did Ramon see in his sister’s room?

Maybe he saw some of his drawing that he tried to make look perfect.  Her walls were like an art gallery.

Why do you think Ramon fell silent? What emotion do you think he is feeling?

I think he fell silent because he saw his drawings on his sister’s walls.  I think he is feeling shocked at his sister’s doing.  I also think he is happy because for once someone actually admire his drawings.

What do you think Marisol thinks about Ramons drawings?

I think she loves his drawings because if she hated his drawings she wouldn’t have had them on her wall.

What COLOUR do you think the page will have?

Explain why?

I think a colour that represents shocked or yellow for happy because he is happy that someone like his drawings.


Now take a look at the picture and the colour and see if you can identify

What do you see?
