Sugarloaf Thursday 


 Continue reading Marcy and the Riddle of the Sphinx (until page 47).

As the text goes on we see a change in Marcy's character. What is the change? 

I would like you to revisit your writing from yesterday to ensure you have included how Marcy has changed throughout the text so far. Think of her actions and feelings at the beginning versus now. 



You will revisit the character profile we used yesterday to create your own adventure character. How will your character look, act, move and feel? Make sure to consider what makes them adventurous!

 Write a descriptive paragraph about your own adventure character.
