Mrs. Malphy's 4A
Global Read Aloud 2014

In today's reading, we see that it's getting harder and harder for Ellie not to tell the truth about Grandpa to her friends.  When Raj makes a comment that Ellie's cousin dresses like his grandfather, Ellie thinks to herself, "If only he knew."  If you were in Ellie's shoes would you start telling people that Grandpa isn't your cousin but your grandfather instead or would you just keep the secret?  Explain why you would make the choice that you did.

I would tell a lie because things would go wrong if I don't want grandpa to feel bad.

If I were Ellie, I would try to keep the lie about my grandpa because if I told Raj, he might tell his friends and the might keep telling people. that is one reason why I would lie to Raj.

If I was in Ellie's shoes I would tell Raj the truth because he would believe me that he was my grandpa so I could trust Raj that he would keep the secret and I would not tell anybody else but Raj and keep it between us three and my mom and I wouldn't tell my mom's boyfriend.
