This 28 page literacy unit can work along with any Amelia Bedelia books: or alongside Play Ball Amelia Bedelia
I read Amelia Bedelia to my class, introduced idioms, multiple meaning words and homophones and how language can be tricky. Then I had literacy groups read a variety of Amelia Bedelia books and then work through these literacy stations.
*Homophone Crossword puzzle, including a word bank and an answer key
*Amelia Bedelia and the Mixed Up Ball Game- A Book About Mutiple Meaning Words (students look at a sentence from the book Play Ball Amelia Bedelia, use the illustration/ picture cue, and then write a sentence about what the children REALLY meant not what Amelia Bedelia thought they meant.)
*Amelia Bedelia Says It All board game about idioms (phrases that don't mean what they literally say. I included an answer card for the game cards and bonus cards to make the game play a bit more challenging if desired.)
*Silly Sentence Amelia Bedlia Style activity. (students follow the recipe card and select a card of each color to make silly sentences and then record them on the recording sheet.)
