A Monster Calls pages 10-37: Thinking about what we read "Breakfast" - Practice finding evidence. EXAMPLE: What evidence is there that Connor is taking on more responsibility around the house since his mom is sick? It is clear that Connor is doing more for himself and his mother around the house because he makes his own breakfast and thinks to himself that it is something "he had grown used to doing" (14). And when his mom gets up he tells her that, "I put the dishes in the dishwasher...and "there's washing going, too" (15). Notice that I used the prompt to lead into the evidence I found. Then I listed three separate pieces of evidence and gave the page numbers of where the evidence can be found in the book. Now you try. 1. What evidence is there that Connor's mom is really sick? Connors mom is really sick because when connor came downstairs his mom was not there like she always is there and his mom also says that she "you know how I get at this pointin the treatments, connor" 2. Do you think the monster real or just a dream? I think the monster is a dream because connor isn't really that scared as if it was real "School" and "Life Writing" - Practice writing/asking good questions starting with explain, discuss, justify and describe.

The monster returns to Conor's house at 12:07 that night, but this time Conor goes out in the backyard to meet him instead of the monster breaking into the house.
