Main Idea, Sequencing, Extended Response:
Here is a short 30-45 minute Reading Comprehension activity for grades 3-5, for advanced students in 2nd grade, and for English Language Learners.
With multiple ways to assess understanding, the questions at the end include extended response and multiple choice, and ask students to summarize the main idea as well as determine a sequence of events.
This passage is an original retelling of the African Folktale that explains how spiders got their legs. It features the legendary Anansi the Spider, and is excerpted from my upcoming book, "The Anansi Maze" (2018).
Thank you for visiting! In the near future, I expect to add even more useful resources expressing the diversity of our children.
