Key Ideas

Can something be both good and bad at the same time?  Give your own example.   How is this true for Ana Rosa? 

 

Literary Focus

writing"For five minutes the words fell around me in places I couldn't reach.  I gave up trying to gather them into anything sensible."  ~Ana Rosa

Briefly describe what is going on during this part of the chapter, then explain what you think the author is trying to convey?       

 

Extend Understanding

  As a group, read the poem on p. 91 and discuss its meaning.  Work together to write a four-line poem that could have been written by Ana Rosa's mother as a response.  Your poem needs to follow the same rhyming pattern (look at the Spanish version).
