I created several comprehensive activities for the second story in the Pearson's Reading Street program for grade 5. Thunder Rose is a tall tale story and this product includes the following activities:
-Cause and Effect (**Differentiated--one with more scaffolding)--mini-lesson, guided practice, and independent practice
-Thunder Rose is filled with many examples of figurative language. Students will have to identify the example from the text, cite the example directly from the text, and explain what that example means.
-Students will have to cite direct examples from the text to support why this story is an example of a tall tale (with guided questions to help)
-Constructed response question
-Text dependent questions
