This document covers the 6 stories in Theme 2 of the Houghton Mifflin Reading Series-Traditions. There are 10 questions per selection. They cover ELA goals from literature and informational text. There are multiple choice questions with some of them requiring a quote from the selection to prove or expand answers. Because these are for early year 4th graders, the writing is kept to 2 or 3 lines. Since this theme appears early in the year, the questions are designed to be used either with the students to prepare them for answering higher level thinking questions or to be used as assessments at the end of a week of teaching the various goals covered in the assessments. I have divided the 10 questions onto 2 pages so that they can be covered over a 2 day period if necessary. I will be adding the other themes. Included is an answer sheet for each set of questions with the correlating CCS goal for each question. I have put all of the questions and answer sheets in one word document to allow teachers to make changes as needed.
