This is a detailed lesson plan for a small group activity that goes along with the book “Henry and Mudge and the Best Day of All”. It is a student centered lesson with a focus on reading comprehension and forming text to self connections. The plan is a detailed step by step guide for a guided reading lesson, including: suggestions for questions and prompts to use with students, an attention grabbing anticipatory set, colorful worksheets, assessment for objectives, and suggestions for accommodations to use for gifted students and learning support students.
The applicable Common Core Standards are listed in the lesson plan, as well as INTASC standards. All of the resources needed (other than the book itself) are included in the file. I hope this lesson/activity works as well for you as it did for me.
The Common Core Standards connected to this lesson are for second grade, but I encourage you to make any modifications or changes necessary to make this experience the most valuable for your students, regardless of their grade!
Please rate this activity plan after downloading/utilizing it for your classroom. This is my first listing and having some ratings and feedback to go along with my product would be a wonderful addition. Thanks in advance!!
