If you are like us, you are probably always looking for new resources to use with your guided reading groups. Several years ago we started purchasing books from the Henry and Mudge series by Cynthia Rylant in sets of 6-7 through our Scholastic book orders. Lots of times we used our bonus points!!!!
We have found that these are easy to read chapter books for our beginning readers. Not only do they LOVE Henry and Mudge, but they LOVE the fact that they are reading chapter books.
As many of you may know, we like to have some kind of response sheet to use with ALL of the books we read during our daily guided reading time. So, we have created a set of worksheets to use with many of the Henry and Mudge books that focus on story word recognition and comprehension.
For each of the books there is a list of 15 story words that you can introduce to your students prior to reading the story for the first time. Then there are 2-3 open response comprehension questions for students to answer using complete sentences. There is also a bonus worksheet for students to practice writing meaningful sentences using the story words.
If this sounds like something you could use in your classroom head on over to TpT and check out our new Henry and Mudge Reading Resource Pack.
