Recording Sheet for feeling boxes
Pg. 1 – essential vocabulary word – Blind – not able to see
Pg. 3 – What would make the mouse think that it was a pillar?
Pg. 4 – Look at the illustration. What is the second mouse feeling of? I wonder what the mouse will think that is?

Pg. 7 – The third mouse went on what day? What day will come next?
Pg. 12 – Has anyone else put together the clues to figure out what the “strange something” is?
Pg. 14 – Why do you think the mice were having such a hard time figuring out what the “strange something” is?
Pg. 16 – Do you think the white mouse will guess correctly what the “strange something” is?
Pg. 18 – essential vocabulary – Moral – A moral of a story is another way of saying a lesson that you learn. Do you think the mice learned a lesson? What lesson did they learn? Do you think that you could use the moral of this story to help you in your life?
