arrives at the castle
4. When the prince arrives at the castle, the students read alone.
5. When the group has finished reading, they should work together to list the positive character
traits of Prince charming
6. Find textual support for these traits: “Where in the book does it say these traits? How do you
know”? etc

create a character on Voki.com. At the end of the lesson, each group should have answered
these questions:
a. What are the positive character traits the prince shows? (Bravery, Kindness, and
Honesty)
