Students read and analyze a fun, creative short story. This worksheet engages close reading skills by asking response questions at the end of the story.
Building upon one theme of the story, students reflect on a time in their life when they did or said something they regret. Then students use the worksheet to write a letter of apology about the incident.
Finally, students use the story as inspiration to write a creative narrative about what might happen if one of their toys, dolls, action figures, etc. came to life.
