    Before students can recount stories and determine their central message they need to understand a few things. This bundle provides you with five days of reading lessons teaching retelling stories, all about fables and folktales, and how to find the central message in a story.

    The first three days include slide presentations that you may use for your minilessons. The fourth day is included as a bonus for purchasing this bundle, and is a review of the first three lessons included in this bundle. An assessment, which can be given on the fifth day, is also included as a bonus for purchasing this bundle. The assessment is a perfect test of what your students have learned during the week.

    For your convenience, you may access the slide presentations through either PowerPoint or Google Slides. The order of the slide presentations that I recommend is as follows:

    Day 1 - Retelling Stories.

    Day 2 - All About Fables and Folktales

    Day 3 - Finding the Central Message in a Story

    Day 4 BONUS Presentation - Reviews all of the previous days' lessons in one cohesive review session for your students.

    Each day uses a story to illustrate the day's reading strategy. The stories included in the presentations include:

    The Boy Who Cried Wolf

    Chicken Little

    The Ugly Duckling

    The Day 5 bonus of this bundle is the assessment.

    This bundle also includes an exit slip for the first four lessons, which you can use to assess your students' understanding of the reading skill taught each day. Your students may use any book they are reading (or text that you are using) to answer the questions on the exit ticket.

    Finally, there is an assessment included which can be given on Day 5 to assess your students' understanding of this common core standard. Each PowerPoint includes a text which students can use to practice the reading skill that is being taught. This is a comprehensive bundle which will meet all of your needs for RL 2.2 "Recount stories, including fables and folktales, from diverse cultures, and determine their central message, lesson, or moral."
