READING LITERATURE ANCHOR 2

Reading Literature Anchor 2 is focused on two major components in literacy instruction. The first is to have learners determine the theme of a fictional text. Third and fourth grade is more about the universal theme and fifth and sixth begins to have students elaborate on the universal theme by writing out the specific lesson in the format of a sentence. Students will also begin locating evidence to help support the theme. The second focus is on summarizing a fictional text. third grades continues to look at summarizing using events and fourth through sixth grade will utilize plot as a basis for summarizing a fictional text. 

  • RL.3.2 Recount stories, including fables, folktales, and myths from diverse cultures; determine the central message, lesson, or moral and explain how it is conveyed through key details in the text.

  • RL.4.2 Determine a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text; summarize the text.

  • RL.5.2 Determine a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text, including how characters in a story or drama respond to challenges or how the speaker in a poem reflects upon a topic; summarize the text.
