This is the Common Core Assessment for 2.RL.2 Recounting stories, including fables and folktales from diverse cultures, and determining their central message, lesson, or moral. It has two fables and includes multiple choice, short answer and paragraph writing. The questions are using the same terminology as the common core and are asking students to answer in the same manner: complete sentences and paragraphs of 3-5 sentences. All question stems and prompts are addressed. If you are interested in the whole package that goes with this assessment please see the Unit that includes the smartboard, graphic organizers, lesson plan, and assessment. Visit my store frequently as I am in the process of creating these sources and they go up weekly.
