This package contains a comprehension assessment (multiple choice/ short response questions), vocabulary review, vocabulary cloze passage, and trifold featuring 5 short response questions for the story Cendrillon. It also includes a short comprehension assessment for Yeh-Shen. The final component is a "Cinderella Around the World" elements chart. Students will complete the chart after reading Cendrillon, Yeh-Shen, and another version of Cinderella. The chart requires students to complete an analysis of characters, figurative language, theme, and other elements found in each story.
I used this chart as a small group activity. My class read Cendrillon and Yeh Shen together. I then divided the students into groups based on ability and selected a Cinderella story appropriate to each group's level. They then completed this chart as a group, with my assistance when needed.
You can extend this activity even further by having students write a compare/ contrast essay or an opinion piece on their favorite version of Cinderella. The chart lends itself to Common Core writing activities very well!
