English Language Arts Lesson - Lessons in Fables and Folktales, Grade 2

  • Activity 1 / The Lion and the Mouse Worksheet

    Writer’s often have a message or theme in their stories. Determining the message or theme is challenging in many cased because it is often not stated in the story-it is implied. Read the story from this worksheet about The Lion and the Mouse. Students then think about what the characters say and do to figure out the message in the story. This printable is a great practice resource for discovering the message of a text.

Check your child’s reading comprehension and give your child a purpose for reading with this fascinating worksheet from Kids Academy! Featuring a well-loved tale from Aesop’s fables, your child will enjoy reading about the thirsty crow who famously solved his problem by filling a pitcher with rocks to make the water rise. Simply read the story together with your child and determine which message on the bottom of the page is the central theme of the passage.

Such a great app!
This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.

So engaging
We love how we can focus on math with this app. It is engaging and we love how we are able to adjust and tailor the levels according to our son’s knowledge and skill levels!

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
