Guided Reading


Yesterday, we looked at a picture from the story and you thought about what might be happening. 


Today, read the text below: 


She pulled herself up with shaking arms and stepped inside.  The floor was baking hot.  She walked on, deeper into the earth, deeper than the moonlight went and heard nothing but silence, and saw nothing, but dark rocks.
