My FREEBIE goes along with the book 
The Reader by Amy Hest. 
This is a sweet story about a boy and his dog who travel 
to a nice spot in the snow to play and read their favorite book together. 
My Kindergarten learners need lots of practice identifying story elements. Use this freebie to help your students identify characters and the setting in this story, retell the story and turn & talk about the story. These activities can be used during a week long study of this story or as a focus lesson for one of these skills.

Don't forget that my mystery word is reader.
