PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

What’s important in writing a summary? This practice pack asks students to include the main character(s), setting, goal or motivation, obstacle, steps taken to overcome the obstacle, and outcome.

What’s Included:
• Four fables: “The Goose and the Golden Egg,” “The Peacock,” “The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse,” and “The Donkey and the Load of Salt”*
• Two organizers
• Themed constructed response sheet for each fable
• Multiple-choice worksheets (with answer keys) for each fable
• Student self-check sheet
• Rubric

Scaffolding
• Stories are ordered from least to most complex, which scaffolds instruction for all students in your class.
• Multiple-choice worksheets allow students to check a box next to each of the important elements. These can be used at the beginning of the unit with all students and continued for lower readers. Additionally, these offer great opportunities for test prep.
• Organizers guide students to select key elements. Again, these can be used at the beginning and phased out, if you wish.
