the coat of many colors

Above is J's story drawing from the story "The Coat of Many Colors", depicting Joseph showing up where his brothers are tending their flocks, wearing his coat of many colors, and the brothers discussing what to do about him. Below is Zoo Boy's drawing, of two of the brothers discussing Joseph's fate after they threw him in the pit (that brown line at the bottom of the right hand side of the drawing is the pit, you can't see him but Joseph is in there shouting for help, Zoo Boy says).

Above is J's summary, below is Zoo Boy's. We had a discussion about how long our summaries have gotten, and both boys had to shorten theirs in order for them to fit on the page. Today we'll work on creating a much more concise story summary for the story we read yesterday.
