I created this pack to provide students with grade appropriate passages of famous fables. The fables are all based on the tales by Aesop. There are four levels of EACH passage. These are perfect for independent practice, or even as assessments. The approximate levels are as follows:
· The Lion and the Mouse- End 1st, Beginning 2nd, Mid 2nd, End 2nd
· The Ant and the Dove- Beginning 2nd, Mid 2nd, End 2nd , Beginning 3rd
· Belling the Cat- End 1st, Beginning 2nd, Mid 2nd, End 2nd
· The Little Boy that Cried Wolf- Beginning 2nd, Mid 2nd, End 2nd , Beginning 3rd
Each passage has five comprehension questions. Students are required to go back to the text and color code each answer. This encourages students to refer back to the text and also use evidence in the text as needed.
Answer keys for the comprehension questions are provided with possible student answers. However, please note that some questions may have more than one correct response.
