Plotting Tequila Worm  Before we proceed with reading Tequila Worm, let's stop and process the text a bit. How has the story changed from the beginning to where we are currently? How has Sofia changed? What central conflicts are emerging? Where do you think the story is heading? After a brief discussion, let's add to our Story Plot Chart ('Tequila Worm')

Guided Reading: Tequila Worm  Today we will read the chapter "My Plastic Tia" (pgs. 50-60) of Tequila Worm. As we read, we will stop periodically to discuss the text and, if time permits, work on the guiding questions within our 'The Tequila Worm' Reading Guide (Week 2).
