The House on Mango Street Esmeralda Carmona Period: 5

PowerPoint Presentation:

The Plot: Esperanza(The main character), was being offered by Lucy and Rachel five dollars for her friendship, just to buy a bike. Esperanza, really didn't have any friends except for Cathy. Lucy and Rachel already had ten dollars to buy the bike from Tito, which costs fifteen dollars, so they offered their friendship to Esperanza, in exchange for five dollars. Rachel's sister is Lucy. Lucy was very small compared to Rachel, who laughed a lot with her teeth showing.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Cathy's really jealous, only because Rachel and Lucy were trying to steal Esperanza from her to buy the bike. Cathy told Esperanza not to talk to them, but since Esperanza really didn't have any friends, she went to go talk to the girls. Nenny, is Esperanza's sister, who wasn't there when Esperanza took about two dollars from her so that she could have friends. Esperanza doesn't really except herself for who she is and wants to change herself.

PowerPoint Presentation:

They decided to all ride the bike at the same time, so they did. They went riding up and down the streets. Lucy petaled, Esperanza sat on the back seat, and Rachel was skinny enough to sit on the handle bars.

PowerPoint Presentation:

After Esperanza gave the girls the five dollars, Cathy got mad and left. So the girls went to go buy the bike from Tito. After they got the bike they argued who was able to ride the bike first.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Theme: Friendship:The emotions or conduct of friends; the state of being friends “If you give me five dollars I will be your friend forever”, Friendship isn't about who gives you things or tells you they will be your friend forever, a friendship is showing you what a friendship means/ really is.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Neglect:The state or fact of being uncared for. “When I get back, Cathy is gone like I knew she would be, but I don't care.” A real friend wouldn't neglect the friend no matter for who or anything because you never know they might not ever come back when you need them

PowerPoint Presentation:

Freedom:The power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint. Being able to do whatever you want , whenever you want.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Figurative Language “Rachel is skinny enough to get up on the handlebars which makes the bike wobbly as if the wheels are spaghetti.” A figure of speech is the use of a word or words diverging from its usual meaning. It can also be a special repetition, arrangement or omission of words with literal meaning, or a phrase with a specialized meaning not based on the literal meaning of the words in it, as in idiom, metaphor, simile,hyperbole, or personification.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Connect In life its possible that you can ignore your friends and the next day they come back like if nothing happened, but sometimes that doesn't happen. Sometimes they don't come back, and that's when you realize what you have done, and what you have lost. Sometimes losing people teaches you not to do somethings and sometimes you learn what kind of person you are,especially to the people who really care about you.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Discussion: Was it right for Esperanza to completely blow off Cathy? Was Cathy right to tell Esperanza to not talk to Rachel and Lucy? Why did Lucy and Rachel bribe Esperanza and not Cathy?
