A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your reading lessons.

In addition to individual student work time, use this activity to enhance learning through guided reading groups, whole class lessons, or remote learning assignments. 

Suppose you have a mixture of above and below-level learners and ELL/ESL students. In that case, we have a few suggestions for keeping students on track with these concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students.

Have students work in pairs or small groups to read the text and complete the activities.

Provide read-aloud accommodations as needed.

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

Encourage students to read other narrative texts and identify settings, characters, and other features in the text.

Have students write their own story and share it with the class.

🧑‍🏫 Group Learning

Project the sheets onto a screen and work through them as a class by having students record their answers in their notebooks or mini whiteboards.
