Our Henry and Mudge week was a lot of fun because my students were introduced to Book Clubs (aka Literacy Circles). I purchased 6 Henry and Mudge chapter books from Amazon. These books are a great intro to chapter books. They are easy for them to read this late in the school year. It also prepares them for what's ahead in Second Grade. We are planning to continue our Henry and Mudge Book Clubs for the next couple of weeks following our Spring Break. Here's how they work.
I intoduced the clubs as a whole group with Henry and Mudge: The First Book. There are 5 jobs for the students to choose from so I picked 5 students to have a job: Characters, Setting, Main Idea, Problem, and Solution. When we finished reading the book, we "Shared the Pen" and had the students with jobs write on the worksheet. Then all the students answered questions about the story on an independent worksheet. When we did our first book club with the student groups, they were able to choose from 5 different books with worksheets for each book. They really liked it and didn't need a lot of help!
We were learning about Adjectives that compare and using words with -er and -est. The students made their dog Mudge and compared it to another dog using words with -er and -est.
