These activities feature kind-hearted but confused character Amelia Bedelia. I haven't met a kid yet who doesn't love the stories of her mixed up attempts to help others. There are eight educational activities from different areas of the curriculum. Activities are in PDF format so they can be accessed on both PCs and Macs. Included:
1. Amelia Bedelia is a Good Egg: In the thought bubble over Amelia Bedelia's head, draw a picture of what you think she's thinking when she hears "Amelia Bedelia is a good egg."
2. Homophones: Homophones are words that sound alike but are different in meaning and spelling. Match together each picture with its correct homophone.
3. Pick a Pie: Sort out the pie cards according to their type (cherry, pumpkin,
lemon meringue or apple) then complete the graph showing how many you have of each type.
4. Pie Patterns: Create different patterns using the pie cutouts.
5. The Long and Short of It: Say the name of each picture below. Decide if you hear a long or short vowel in the word. Circle the correct answer.
6. Help Amelia Get it Right: Amelia Bedelia does everything exactly as it is worded---and she usually ends up doing it all wrong. Rewrite the tasks below to help Amelia get it right the first time. Be as specific as possible.
7. Amelia's List: Commas are used to separate three or more items in a list. This helps make the sentence easier to read. You do not put a comma after the last item. (So if there are three items in the list, you would have two
commas. If there are five items in the list, you would have four commas. Put the commas where they belong in each sentence. The first one is done for you.
8. Homonyms--Nouns or Verbs: Read each sentence. The underlined word is a homonym. Homonyms are words that are spelled the same but have different meanings. Decide if the underlined homonym is being used as a noun or verb. Write your answer on the line.
9. Activity Letter: Explains how to do each activity
