Our story this week is Two Bad Ants, by Chris Van Allsburg. He is well known for his story, The Polar Express. The story allows the reader to experience the world through an ant's point of view. When a troop of ants are sent to a kitchen to get sugar crystals for the queen, two of its members get a little greedy and stay behind in the sugar bowl. The next day, there is nothing but trouble and dangerous situations for the two "bad" ants!

Skills include: drawing conclusions, context clues, and author and title search.
