This short story unit was created to support a single read-aloud book, should a class set be unavailable.

No prep, easy to use reading response pages designed to focused on each reading strategy identified above are provided for multi-learning levels. Early primary to early intermediate will have success using these response pages.

Also included: student assessment rubric for each story and BC Core Competency Student Reflection pages (as seen in Preview picture.) Generic self reflection (without "Core Competency" title) are also included.
