Reading Foldable- a summary of the story character traits for two characters (with supporting evidence) setting (both place and time - inferred from the story) a reflection based on the question, "How did the main character's feelings change throughout the story?"

Group work trick: Each student writes their own answer on a post-it, they bring the answers together and write a group answer in the center.
