Room 26's class pet, Humphrey, teaches his classmates many important lessons in Betty G. Birney's first "Humphrey" series novel. He will have your students captivated, and the CCSS-aligned, rigorous, widely varied questions and graphic organizers will have you smiling! (CCSS alignment provided for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade.)
Each chapter has a before and after question section, along with vocabulary builders and graphic organizers to boost critical thinking and reading strategy skills! The 16 pages of student work are followed by a very thorough answer key, which provides multiple possible responses for more interpretive questions, text citations, and teaching suggestions. A "Let's Think About Theme" theme analysis page is included at the conclusion of the novel study to help students digest the themes in the novel. A novel study skill recording sheet is included as well, to help you guide your reading group to skill mastery!
Perfect for guided reading, literature circles, book clubs, independent reading - even homework! Students LOVE Humphrey series, and you will love the rigor and structure that this novel study will bring to any lesson. Happy reading!
