Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Book 2)
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Book 2) | J.K. Rowling
In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the summer after Harry’s first year at Hogwarts has been his worst summer ever… the Dursleys more distant and horrible than ever before. But just as he’s packing his bags to return to school, a creature named Dobby the house-elf announces that if Harry goes back to Hogwarts, disaster will strike. And it turns out, Dobby is right. Harry and Ron miss the Hogwarts Express, so they fly to school in a blue Ford Anglia, crash landing in the notorious Whomping Willow. Soon other worries accumulate: the outrageously stuck-up new professor Gilderoy Lockhart; a ghost named Moaning Myrtle, who haunts the girls' bathroom; the strange behavior of Ron's little sister, Ginny Weasley; rumors about the "Chamber of Secrets," a cavern buried deep below Hogwarts; and a magical diary owned by Tom Riddle, a Hogwarts student of long ago. Harry is also shocked to discover that he can speak Parseltongue, the language of snakes - a rare ability that Lord Voldemort also possessed - and that anti-Muggle prejudice exists in the Wizarding world, even affecting Harry's friend Hermione. But all of these seem like minor concerns when someone starts turning Hogwarts students to stone: an evildoer said to be the fearsome Heir of Salazar Slytherin, on of the founders of the school. Could it be Draco Malfoy, Harry's most poisonous rival? Could it be Hagrid whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one person everyone at Hogwarts most suspects: Harry Potter himself?

I‘m about to start a re-read of my VERY worn copy of The Chamber of Secrets. I wonder how many times and by how many people this book has been read. I first read it when I was on maternity leave with my now 19 year old and she eventually read it herself. I hope it doesn‘t fall apart as I read!

Reading this for the first time. Yes I know they've been out forever! My sister finally convinced me to read them. Why not on my 3 week vacation visiting family right.

Another fantastic MF novel in the HP series by JK Rowling. NY Times Bestseller and 2nd book in the series, this would be a fantastic pick for LC. Harry Potter is back for his second year and thinks it will be a normal school year with friends. Not too soon into the new year do strange things start to happen when Harry is around. The chamber of secrets has been open by the heir of Slytherin and everyone thinks it Harry! Harry and his friends..

Kcompton2912 Go on a mission to find out who‘s doing this and clear his name! This link is a great discussion guide to use with the LC. http://hpread.scholastic.com/HP_Book2_Discussion_Guide.pdf The UDL principle 8.3, foster collaboration and community, as well as the EL strategy 10, teach think, pair, and share strategies in cooperative groups, can both be met with this book in a LC setting! #UCFLAE4313SU19 1w

Still madly in love with my reread of the Harry Potter series. In this one, I was charmed when I crossed some of my favorite quotes and surprise at how short the scene in the chamber actually is! #bbrc #middlegrade #over250pages

I‘ve got to go to the library!” And she sprinted away, up the stairs. “What does she understand?” said Harry...”Loads more than I do,” said Ron, shaking his head. “But why‘s she got to go to the library?” “Because that‘s what Hermione does,” said Ron, shrugging. “When in doubt, go to the library.”

I haven‘t re-read Harry Potter in a long time, and I usually say the 2nd is my least favorite (or the 5th). But, I‘m excited to finally read the British versions. Had forgotten how many details in this book come into play in the 6th & 7th ones. I got this one in my house color—Hufflepuff. My Pygmy puff, Violet, from HP World is included in this pic.

4 1/2 ⭐️ While I loved the illustrations of the book, I just didn‘t like it as much this reread. Think it was largely due to the fact that I just read it about 6 weeks ago. This reread was for the Harry Potter and the Sacred Text podcast. Still a very good read. #2019 #harrypotter

I really this book because we get a better look into what harry has to go through with Voldemort. The wizards chess is my favorite part of the book/movie.

Modern fantasy and was written in 1998. This book is about Harry Potter going back to Hogwarts only to find out the chamber of secrets has been opened and he has to figure it out. The book begins with running away from his mom in the real world to go to Hogwarts. When he gets to school he finds out about the chamber of secrets. He ron and Hermione get past fluffy, a room of flying keys, and a wizards chess to kill the serpent.

Finally on the second book of the Harry Potter series— Ahhh! I‘m on chapter 11! I‘ve been so excited about these books— I have been missing out on the fandom. I can definitely say this book has continued my fascination so I can‘t wait for the rest haha. It‘s weird because even though I‘ve watched the films the books still create their own magical world within my imagination hehe 😜

Yesterday, my favourite bookstore had 30% off on all the books! And I finally got my hands on this wonderful 20th anniversary edition of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets!!! In addition, I bought The Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio (in the photo) and The Sorrows of Young Werther by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Can't wait to read them! #HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets #JKRowling #TheDecameron #GiovanniBoccaccio #TheSorrowsOfYoungWerther

I don't care if it's illogical that Harry breaks rules and saves the magical world as a child, I still love it and nothing will change my mind 💚

Furthermore, the #forbiddenforest was a favourite scene to explore last summer in the London studios

Having reread this series a few times without particularly being a Potter-head, I'm realising that I come back to them like I would comfort food. I have lots of new books on the go at the same time and I like having an old faithful that I know I can rely on to be good. J. K is a genius and so funny.

I absolutely love the Modern Fantasy novel by J.K. Rowling. The book is good for a literature circle group that can discuss the book and it‘s very controversial matter. The Chamber Of Secrets begins, as did the Philosopher‘s Stone with Harry once again at home with the dreadful Dursley‘s. There are mysterious happenings at Hogwarts and Harry, assisted by his staunch friends set about discovering the truth to the Chamber of Secrets and look for

Ms.Bursey clues to help them understand the attacks on the children at the schools. The UDL principle for this book is 2.2 and the ESOL strategy is 7. Show students how to use graphic organizers like semantic mapping and imaging. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/books/harry-potter-and-the-chamber-of-secret... #lae3414spr19 3mo
