Introduction to Book Punch
Book Punch guides students through the steps of thinking and writing about well-known core literature. Students write paragraphs responding to interactive writing prompts. The program tutors students to develop ideas and organize their thinking about what they have read.


In the story, Ramona is growing up. She is doing things that show she is more independent, but she has mixed feelings about growing up. Think about how you are becoming a more independent person and how you feel about growing up. Write a paragraph describing something you are doing now that shows you are growing up and becoming more independent. Include your feelings about your new independence.

Frequently, things do not turn out as expected. At the beginning of the story, Ramona is excited about her first day of third grade, but everything doesn't turn out exactly as she would like. Write a paragraph about the surprises during Ramona's first day of school.
