This man vs. man conflict is between Nick and Mrs. Granger. Nick wants to use the word frindle, but Mrs. Granger does not. Mrs. Granger tries to stop him.
I chose the character Nick Allen. Nick is stubborn because no matter what, he wants to keep using the word frindle. I chose Nick because he is the main character, and one of the people in the main conflict.
My New Word is...
The theme in Frindle is be careful what you wish for. This is the theme because Nick wanted frindle to become a popular word, but then everyone started to interview him, and it made him feel uncomfortable.
I hope you enjoyed my presentation!
Nick Allen wanted to use the word frindle, but Mrs. Granger, who was his ELA teacher, wanted him to use the word pen, which had an important history. So Nick came up with a ton of ideas to get his word frindle more popular. Then the word frindle became used as an everyday word.
My made-up word is heem-heem. I chose this word because when my sister, Stella, and I were little we called each other heem-heem. This means sister, and I still use this word today.
