This is a great bundle for the story "A Pocket for Corduroy" by Don Freeman. This bundle includes: Vocabulary Cards: I like to use this as a group activity where students have to create a poster for the book that we will eventually read. Don’t feel like creating a poster, you can also use this for a quick review before the read aloud. I leave on my bulletin board for the duration of the book lessons.Before You Read Questions: I use this as morning work the day of the read aloud or at the beginning of the unit. This will jumpstart students’ minds with the background vocabulary knowledge. I find this also adds interest into the story.
Comprehension Questions: This works great for sub packets, or for keeping together as a book study packet. Reality or Fantasy Worksheet: Provides an explanation for both that can help parents if used for homework. This could also be a week rotation for work at different centers. All Corduroy themed! Prefix Worksheet – Another quick review of a skill. Homework or packet, your choice! . Sequencing Cut-and- Paste: I love this activity since students can always use practice with sequencing. Cause and Effect Cut-and-Paste: Students get tired of simple fill in the blank worksheets. Spend a little time cutting out a box or two and they are in a better mood about practicing reading skills such as cause and effect. Rewrite the Ending, and Drawing Activity: More than just a journal writing activity. Students have the chance to re-write the ending of the story. Students will also have a drawing activity at the bottom of the page. Students should create a “Lost Bear” poster for Lisa to place in the laundromat.Decorate Corduroy’s Pocket: Just a fun activity. Could be a cute bulletin board in your classroom. I like to add this to the workbook even for sub days because it makes for a nice break from worksheets.
