Here is an original passage, using many sight words specified for up to 2nd grade, that allows for identifying the Main Idea, offers practice in Compare and Contrast, and references the cultural meaning of food in a way appropriate for 1st graders, 2nd graders, English Language Learners, and possibly even 3rd graders.
Included is my original two-page story, "Aunt Jenny's Sweet Potato Pie" and five comprehension questions and activities including a Venn Diagram, two multiple choice questions, and two opportunities at extended response.
Thank you for visiting! And thanks to Creative Clips Clipart by Krista Wallden for one of the two images on this resource. (I did the pie!)
In the near future, I expect to add even more useful resources expressing the diversity of our children.
