Do your students love the Harry Potter series? Have your students read, "The Tale of the Three Brothers," by J.K. Rowling. It is a short story found in her novel The Tales of Beedle the Bard.
I created three handouts to go with the story. The beginning two handouts provides comprehension questions on theme, character, inference, context clues, and conflict. The last handout is for students to plot the story line.
Here is a YouTube video pf the story.
