PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Literal Language can be difficult for early readers or EL students to understand. Thank goodness we have a series of books with a delightful character, Amelia Bedelia, to add a little humor to this challenging reading and language skill.

Amelia, who is extremely literal, is a great way to introduce students to the complexities of our language. English is full of idioms, multi-meaning words and homophones. Through the Amelia Bedelia books students can see the humor in some of these everyday words and phrases.

The Way with Words packet covers these six books:
-Amelia Bedelia
-Thank You, Amelia Bedelia
-Play Ball, Amelia Bedelia
-Amelia Bedelia Goes Camping
-Good Work, Amelia Bedelia
-Amelia Bedelia and the Baby

For each book you'll have 2 pages (3 sentences on each page) with sentences from the book that confuse Amelia. Students first write what Amelia did in the book and then write what she should have done. In this way they'll see Amelia's literal interpretation and then the actual meaning of the word or phrases.

In the preview you can see a suggested list of ways to can use these pages in your classroom.

There is also an 8 page mini-book called Amelia thinks... In this booklet, students are again given a sentence. Instead of writing what Amelia did in a book they draw and write what they think she would have done and again what she should have done. These sentences are not specifically from any of the Amelia Bedelia books. They were chose so students can add their own thinking and interpretation as they try to think like Amelia

An answer key is also included for the Way with Words pages.
