Episode 65: The Cloud, Chapter 3

Hi All,

Just a reminder that we are recording a novella that Mr. Chris and I wrote. The story, about kids solving a mystery using their technology skills, has twenty-five chapters. We’re putting out each chapter as a separate episode of the podcast.

Last week we brought you Chapter 2, where four friends met up at the school on the first day to meet their new teacher. This week, we’re excited to present Chapter 3 of The Cloud!

Stay well and stay safe!


What did you say? A word of the day! In our story 
there are many juicy words that are fun to use and say.

Congestion- To be so crowded with traffic or people that it slows down freedom of movement.
Shepherding- To guide or direct.
Shuffled- Dragging your  feet without lifting them fully from the ground.
Gesture-  A movement of part of the body to express an idea or meaning.
FurrowedTighten in  anxiety, concentration, or disapproval.

                             JUST ADD IMAGINATION! 

Try these activities to keep your imagination glowing 
after hearing the story.
  1. Picture your favorite character in the book. Sketch, draw, paint, sculpt or design the character you envision.
  2. There are a few conspiracy theories about what Mr. Brisbane was doing over the summer. Write your own theory that you would add to the stories that have been told!
  3. Research some fun Ice Breaker activities for the kids to do with their new classmates while they wait in the gym?


After listening to the story, can you recall the 
details to answer these questions?

1. Who wears a bow in their hair every day?

2. What story was more believable of what Mr Brisbane did over the Summer?

3. When did Mr. Brisbane furrow his brow?

4. Where was the large 4 sign hung in the gymnasium?

5. Why do you think Mr. Brisbane gestured for Melvin to sit down?

We Are All In This Together!
