This lesson includes 5 printable learning activities
Tortoise and Hare Story
Ever heard the phrase, "Slow and steady wins the race"? Learn where it comes from -- and practice reading fiction, too -- in this online version of The Tortoise and the Hare.
Tortoise and Hare: Story Ordering
Give your kindergarten students the perfect opportunity to problem solve while developing the critical skill of properly identifying and retelling the sequence of a story. After gathering up fallen pages from the Tortoise and Hare story, your students can click and drag each page to re-arrange the storyline back into its proper order.
Contrasting Literature Quiz
Roly the Cat brings your kindergarteners this sweet review of Tortoise and Hare that builds both reading comprehension and an understanding of illustrations. With each question, students must read the two, two-word sentences, and then select the phrase that correctly describes the illustration shown.
Ant and Grasshopper Story
One works hard while the other hardly works. Learn the value of hard work -- and some early reading skills, too -- in this tale of two insects.
Ant and Grasshopper: Story Ordering
The illustrations in Ant and Grasshopper are a hit with kindergarteners, but it is important to make sure your students understand what took place in the story, too. Piecing back together the storyline with this drag and drop game not only tests reading comprehension, but also develops students’ ability to re-tell a story.
Contrasting Literature Quiz 2
Young learners often derive the meaning of a text from accompanying illustrations. To reinforce this often self-taught skill, and ensure that students are developing reading comprehension skills along the way, let them play with this compare and contrast activity that references the short story, Ant and Grasshopper.
