I designed this 7 page activity packet to accompany The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. I love to use this read aloud to expose my children to the concept of giving and sharing.
This PDF file includes comprehension activities that will ensure that your children have a deep understanding of the text.
The activities include: short answer questions, characterization, sequencing, and the writing of a friendly letter.
I included an additional "extension" activity for your high-fliers. This activity requires them to respond to two sophisticated prompts and apply what they've learned from the text. This additional activity is an excellent way to differentiate your instruction for this text.
Your children will have fun with this colorful packet, and you will feel confident that they understood the text!
I hope you find this useful!
