Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "Do What You Can" by Carolyn Sherwin Bailey.

In the fable "Do What You can," retold by Carolyn Sherwin Bailey, one raindrop wants to help a farmer with his dying crops.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Human vs. Nature, Morality, and Social Change & Revolution as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"Who's in control: humanity or nature?", "How do people create change?", and "What is good and how do we know?"
