Comparing Fairy Tales

My Reflection
i have been learning to identify conman themes in fairy and fractured tails . We read tow narratives called red riding hod and into the forest. A common theme I made from these stories was  they both had a red cote. I found this easy because all you had to do is the different parts of the store My next steps is to make it more difficult.

W.A.L.T  write a  Character Description using adjectives. I found this easy to describe because you have to  describe what she looks like. I use my 5 senses to write 5 different sentences about my  Character. My next steps is to use a simile or metaphor.
