⭐️These 12 certified Lexile® measured fables and question sets are perfect for teaching, developing, or reinforcing RL2.2 and RL3.2 skills. Students use fables to recount stories and determine the central message, lesson, moral, or theme. Students identify and explain how the message is conveyed through key details in the text.

⭐️If you do not use Common Core, this packet is still perfect for teaching main idea skills. Aligns with many state specific standards, including TEKS and VA SOL.

⭐️Includes standard based questions, anchor charts, and two skills focused test passages. Certified Lexile measured close reading comprehension texts are varied within the second and third grade bands.
