Your Protagonist—in Costume: Reading Response Exercise #60

Read for at least twenty to thirty minutes. When you are done, think about what you have read.

Today is Halloween. If the protagonist (main character) of the novel you are reading were invited to a costume party, what would he or she be most likely to dress up as? Why?

Write down or discuss your responses with your reading partners.

Preschool Literacy:

Enjoy a picture book with your little one. Talk to him what kind of costume he plans to wear tonight. Then ask her what she thinks the main character of the story would dress up as for the evening’s fun.

Optional: flip through magazines or search through clip art and make a collage of costumes the two of you think would be a good choice for the protagonist of the story.
