I love to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday with my kiddos and enjoy his stories! Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose has a great message for children about standing up for yourself when others try to take advantage. I use comprehension questions that are specific to the text that the students are using. It makes it easier to give them specific feedback and guidance.
Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose task card question set has 5 comprehension questions and 5 vocabulary questions with an answer key for easy accountability.
The comprehension questions include the following skills:
- Key Details
- Cause and Effect
- Point of View
- Character Development
I have included the following graphic organizers:
- Beginning, Middle, End
- Story Elements Chart
- A central message worksheet that uses synthesizing as a strategy to get to the central message.
- A character study worksheet with character traits and motivations.
- A Double Bubble Map to compare and contrast Thidwick to his guests
Thank you for your interest in my work!
