"Rose's Garden" by Peter Reynolds is a great read-aloud book! In this activity, students from grades 3 to 5 practice their listening skills and apply their understanding of the story to Common Core comprehension questions. Included are multiple-choice, short answer and some extended response items.
I have also included an answer key for you.

Usually, I read and enjoy the book with my class, either projecting it or gathering my little people close together. We discuss as we go and students often want to say some of the lines with me. So fun!
I usually read this book in the first trimester of school as we are working on writing summaries. It is a great community builder too because of some of the great lessons to be found within:
~ Working together can have beautiful results
~ New friends add great color to your life
~ Make the world a more beautiful place
