KEVIN HENKES books are popular for a reason. This book unit medley will help you to introduce Kevin Henkes' books and enable your students to explore their feelings through the eyes of the characters and through their own self reflection. This set is great for back to school or any time throughout the year.

This activity pack contains a variety of activities for the three popular books by Kevin Henkes: Wemberly Worried, Chrysanthemum and Chester's Way.

All of these books have a social theme to them about friendship and acceptance.

The author studies activities included are:

Wemberly's Worry Web

  • Find the feelings concentration game
  • What if: Identify and rate your worries

Chester's Way

  • 4 square vocabulary
  • How Friendships Grow ( great visual to show how friendships develop and grow)
  • Friends through the seasons: Chester's and yours
  • Picture or Word Retelling


  • Things I'm good at
  • Story Task Cards
  • vocabulary word search

These activities are designed for second grade but could be easily given to first grade with support or third grade with less support. The activities are also very center-friendly.
