I used this lesson for my formal observation this year and my principal loved it! It is one of the second grade CCLS: RL.2. 3 '"Describe how characters in a story respond to major events and challenges". I used the read aloud "Owl Moon", by: Jane Yolen. I chose this book because it has one major event. This lesson is differentiated from low to high. It has scaffolding with many different choices for teachers. It can be used with any fiction book. Also it can be used for: homework, guided reading, read alouds or independent reading. I think that you will love this one.
