This 3 page pdf contains a 1 1/2 page story written around a 4th-6th grade level. The story has the theme that one should always be prepared, or one should have a back plan if needed. The assessment asks the students to determine theme and support the theme with evidence from the story. A rubric is included. This would be perfect for assessing the common core standards of determining the theme of a story.
