Product Description
Frederick, by Leo Lionni, is about a unique little field mouse who gathers the sun rays, colors, and words for the winter rather than food. His hard-working friends don’t approve, but in the end, they all discover that Frederick contributes in his own way to their survival in the winter.

Pair your copy of this charming book with our Text-Dependent Questions to model close reading and teach the Common Core State Standards for Reading Literature RL 1, 2, 3, and 4. Next, take your lesson to the “max” with our Close Reading Worksheet and four separate language arts/writing activities (CCSS L1 and CCSS W3-narrative writing). Color and cut out your included Frederick Mouse to retell the story to a friend, then use our paragraph builder and final copy page to write it down. Then retell the story from Frederick’s point of view! Use our Leo Leonni-inspired “Write Your Own” poem to practice identifying and writing verbs and nouns that go with each season, and then illustrate your poem. Finally, go on an adjectives hunt through the text! Answer keys included are designed to also be used for handwriting practice and/or for modified work. Please see our preview!
