Who doesn't love the story "The Art Lesson" by Tomie DePaola? It's a great story that I like to read in September. In this packet I have included:
1- 1 Story sequencing Form (includes a "Good Readers sequence the events in a story" at the top of the page)
2- 2 pages of comprehension questions about the story. (includes a "Good Readers recall facts and details about what they are reading" at the top of the page)
3- 1 Writing Prompt with lines and picture box.
4- Author's Viewpoint page (students create a web on how Tommy was feeling throughout the book.)
