The Lotus Seed By Sherry Garland activities related to story vocabulary, comprehension, and theme.
The packet has 2 vocabulary activity pages, and answer sheet, a cover, a simple story craft (both in color and black/white), theme worksheet, and open-ended comprehension questions with venn diagram. It is best to use the packet/book reading over the course of 2-3 lessons. Depending on the learning level of your students this could be use with very advanced first grade students, second grade on level students, or third grade lower level students.
Most activities in the packet can be completed independently or in pairs of students. The book can be read aloud to the students, read independently by each student, or the students can read it chorally.
I created it for and used it with my gifted/accelerated first grade readers.
