Tuesday: Hal has lots of feelings during the story. Sometimes he feels positive and sometimes negative.

Make a feelings graph to show how he feels. Make notes of what makes him feel good or bad.

 

Wednesday:

 

Read this part of the text. What do all these words mean - muppet, bozo, loser?

Why do you think Hal thinks these things about himself?

Do you think Hal should think these things about himself?

What would you say to Hal if he was your friend?

What advice would you give to him?

How could you make him feel better?

 

Write Hal a letter to help him with his bad feelings.

Thursday: At the ends of the story, Hal has grown a lot taller and now Bogsy is a bit scared of him instead of the other way round.

 

What do you think could happen now? What could happen directly after the story has finished? 

How do you think Hal might treat Bogsy now?

What do you think might change?
