Knocked Down!!!

I think the theme of this story is believe in what you think is right and don’t just hang out with the popular kid just for the heck of it. Always be loyal to all of your friends even if they are not as cool and popular. I think this is the theme because it answers the question, what did the main character Christopher learn!

My Two Step Story Problem

Ava’s dad works almost every day. He is gone for almost all the days of the week.
He was at work for five days one week, four days the week after, and six days for the week after that.
How many days total was he gone for all three weeks? If Ava’s dad calls her twice every day that he is gone, how many total phone calls did Ava get for all three weeks?
