The main character in the story stole the bag from the old lady as she was hungry and had no money. She thought there would be food and money in the bag. To get the bag she made a promise 'to plant them' however when she opened the bag she found only acorns (which grow into trees that don't produce food or make money). Should she still keep her promise?
How many different reasons can you think for why she should and why she shouldn't keep her promise? Write a list with bullet points for each option.

Paragraph 1 - what has happened that day.
Paragraph 2 - reasons to keep the promise.
Paragraph 3 - reasons to not keep the promise.
Paragraph 4 - what the character has finally decided to do.
