This product is designed for either independent- or whole-class reading of the book
Spring According to Humphrey, by Betty G. Birney
© 2016 New York: G. P. Putnam Books
The chapter questions can be answered aloud and within a discussion, but the packet includes directions for the student (pasted below) and a question that students respond to at the end of each chapter. Students should use a writing journal or regular lined paper for their responses.
There are three End of Book questions for students. They choose two of those to respond to.
Directions for the student:
It seems as though everyone is happy whenever there is a new Humphrey book published! This book is terrific. It continues to show readers what life is like for Humphrey as a member of the Room 26 family.
After you read each chapter, stop and grab your writing journal or some lined paper. Read the question, think about it, and write the best answer you can.. Use full sentences in your answer, and look back at the chapter if you need to find details and information, or read something again.
When you finish the book, you will choose two of the questions to answer. You will use some details from the story in your response.
Enjoy this fun, funny, and interesting book! (Don’t forget to stop after each chapter to read the question and write your response.)
Chapter 1: March Misery (pages 1 – 10)
Compare the March weather here, where we live, with the March weather where Humphrey lives. Describe whether it is similar or different.
There is a rubric to assess students’ responses to the end-of-book prompt (one or both of them) and there are answers for those chapter questions that refer directly to text from that chapter.
