REFLECTIONS ON

THERE’S A BOY IN THE GIRLS’ BATHROOM

by Louis SACHAR


“There’s a boy in the Girls’ Bathroom” is an authentic novel used in the English course for Grade 7. We have been using this book with our students for 5 years because there are so many things to discuss, think, learn and share about it. A lot of laughs and tears at the same time... Things to learn from it, things to change about ourselves and things to hope for the future... This year’s grade 7 students put so much effort into preparing the wall display that we wanted it to be shared with more people and not to be forgotten. Here is a collection of our students’ work. Hope you enjoy it... Teachers of English P.S: All the work in the following booklet is students’ own work and has not been editted.


This book is a great book for learning life. It’s fun and emotional at the same time. The book teaches you a great lesson; people can change for good, they just need some love and respect. MELIS SARP 7/A

BRADLEY


BARTHOLOMEW Ömercan Akçit 7B When Bradley had his selfconfidence, his life changed. He began to get good grades and made good friends. This part of the story has stuck in my mind, because I realised that it is important to like myself and have selfconfidence. EKIN GÖKAY 7/G TBGB is an engrossing story and it makes you think. It is about a boy who thinks that he is a monster. He needs to believe in himself. But If you are the most hated kid in the school, believing yourself can be the hardest thing in the world.

enchanting

CARLA Tuna Özkaragöz 7E

Carla told Bradley that even monsters (bad people) have hearts inside their scary bodies. It’s a true thing. Bad people weren’t born bad. The things which happened to them made them become bad. They all have hearts full of sadness and sorrow. SELİN TOPRAKKIRAN 7/E

COLLEEN Mehmet Küçük 7C


I think Bradley has to realize for himself that he isn’t a monster. That is the first step. Until he knows he isn’t monster, how is anybody else supposed to know? YIGIT ÖKTEN 7/G

stunning I think this book should be read because it appeals to your feelings and you feel sorry for Bradley. It makes you think a lot and it is definitely very touching.

made me like reading English
