    Because that always helps him think when he’s doing an assignment or trying to find or figure out a mystery or something when its time or when they have to do something

    Petra thinks that the pentominoes are used for just making rectangles. Calder says,”They help me figure out things”. Calder looked sideways at Petra and said,”Promise you won’t laugh”.Petra said,”Why should I.”

    Calder uses his pentominoes because a felling in side of him makes him feel like the pentominoes is talking to him. They also helps him think like every time he gets the feeling that one is talking to him ,he pulls one out and that pentominoe says a word that gives him a clue of what he’s talking about. Like when I’m thinking I’ll pull out a piece of paper and draw on it so I kind of get the feeling he has when he’s thinking. Everyone has something that makes them think.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!

    Why does Calder use the pentominoes?

    Calder uses the pentominoes because “They help me figure things out,” began Calder.
    “Well, it seems like the pentominoes kind of talk to me. I’ll get the feelings that they want to tell me something, and so I’ll grab one, and a word just pop into my head.

    It seems as if the pentominoes are talking to him. (Exp. When he grabs one out of his pocket then a word pops into his head like if he pulls out an “I” pentomino then “idea” pops into his head) This is why Calder uses pentominoes.

    I think the pentominoes are his blueprints or something because when ever they find a clue he always pulls the first letter of the word and after that always find the clue so there kind of like a guideline for Calder and Petra for their case of the Lady Writing
