Questions
Where did the Tree House land?
_________________________
Why did Jack grab Annie’s leg?

What information did he find out from the book?
What time of day was it?

How do they get down?
What do they find when they get down?

How does Jack feel when he gets to the bottom?

Homework: Annie is very impulsive. Tell about at time that you or a character in a story does something without thinking about the consequences.




Example: Anger
Anger can be a beneficial emotion or it can destroy. If you are angry about social issues then you can use your anger to help society. Seeing many poor people on the street makes me angry that the social services in the big cities all over the world don’t do enough to help them.
I would use my anger to write to the newspaper or write a blog post to help change public opinion and hopefully, maybe in the long run help change this situation.
