Main Events of James Pease


Think back on our story so far. What are some main things that have happened in the story? Please write down 3 main events. For each main event include two details that explain what you remember from that event.


Here's an example from our last book:

1. Sarah Nita's village was captured by the blue soldiers. Her sister and her were tending the sheep when the soldiers came. Their dog kept them away from the village until it was safe.


(In my first sentence you can see the key idea: the capture of the village. The next two sentences were details explaining what else I remember about that event.)


That is just one example of one main event. I would like you to do that for 3 main events from our current story about Sgt. James Pease.

(1)I think that one of the main events is that when James got in the army. He got in the army because he used his uncles name. And he left because his aunt and his uncle did not know that he was gone. (2) Next when he became a Sergeant. He got to be the Sergeant because he was so good at keeping the journal. And when James called Shelp`s name he did not answer to it. (3)Last when he went with Sally and her family. Sally let James in her house. They had to get by a dozen of solders to get to there destination.
