Briefly SUMMARIZE this story in your own words.
DETERMINE why the pretty girl was treated kindly by the three gnomes and why the plain girl was not.
DETERMINE THE FACTORS that would cause you to have, figuratively speaking, of course, gold coins coming out of your mouth instead of frogs and newts? At school? At home? At the community center?

EVALUATE Grandma Jenkins’ suggestion and the suggestions you just heard. GIVE YOUR OPINION about which is the best suggestion that could help you remember to NOT say mean things to other people.
