When reading at home be sure to ask those higher level questions. How did the character change in the book? Why did they change? Look back at the text and find some powerful, descriptive words. Explain what they mean. Why is ____ a good title for the book?

Writing:We are finishing up a poetry unit and will launch our unit about Fairy Tales next week.
