Scaredy Squirrel plans to find the “perfect friend” (one that won’t bite), when an “almost perfect friend” comes along and makes his day! Use this read aloud with our CCSS-aligned text-dependent questions to spark discussion, model close reading, and discover the central message of the story in a fun and engaging way! Discussion inspires students to complete a close-reading worksheet and two separate writing assignments: an opinion paragraph and two personal response paragraphs. Fun coloring sheet also included for early finishers. (This is a stand-alone product with lots of extras--if you are looking for just TDQs and a close-reading worksheet for this story, please see our Growth Mindset pack.)
Included in this product:
• Text-dependent Question Card – CCSS-aligned questions guide students to discuss and discover the central message of the story. Answer key included for teacher reference.
• Close-Reading Worksheet – Questions include page number references to support young learners in being successful at close reading. Answer key included for teacher reference.
• A 2-part opinion paragraph writing assignment - students compare/contrast goldfish and dog then write an opinion paragraph about who would be a better friend
• A 2-part personal narrative writing assignment – students list activities they like to do alone and with a friend, then follow up with two narrative paragraphs
