We just finished reading Chapter 7. We found out that Marty was picked for the play because she was brave and confident. When the class started practicing the play, they realized that it became a lot more fun when they pretended to use magic and their imagination.
We have three questions for you:
1) Half of our class said they WOULD sit in a garbage can that smells like peas just to be in a play and use their imagination. Would you?
2) We noticed that Marty may have started enjoying being the princess when she found she could use her imagination. Were you surprised when Marty started changing?
3) We noticed that Mrs. Aloi shakes the maracas to catch the class’ attention. What does your teacher do to catch your attention? Our teacher sometimes claps, sings, or counts down, and then we have to stop, look, and listen.
