This is a set of text dependent questions that correlate with the McGraw Hill Wonders Reading Series, "Davy Crockett Saves the World". I have created a set of questions that go along with the passage on "Pecos Bill's Wild Ride" found on workbook pages 153 and 154. The questions I have created require students to look back in the text to find their answers. Students are asked to identify the characteristics that make the passage a tall tale. Students will also identify the point of view, figurative language, and cause and effect statements found within the passage. I encourage my students to highlight the portion of the passage that helps them find their answer. I believe this is a great way to prepare students to take standardized tests as well as form a habit of "proving" their answers by finding text support. This is a skill that students MUST conquer in order to be successful with the new common core standards.
I have several other activities that correlate with this story. Please take a look and see if anything interests you. Thank you for considering my products. Please leave feedback if you enjoy using them in your classroom and to receive your TPT credits. THANKS!
