Kids love Curious George! Here is a resource to help your students develop the literacy strategies necessary for them to derive meaning from print and illustrations, read to find new information about a topic, and think and write creatively, all using the Curious George books as a springboard.

Includes:
  • Reproducible work sheets for 24 different books
  • Teacher suggestions
  • Resource list
  • Teacher Evaluation Sheet
  • Student tracking sheet
  • 24 Creativity Activities
  • 84 pages including an answer key

Each Set of Activities for each book includes these skills:

The Comprehension section deals with Knowledge, Comprehension, Analysis, and Evaluation based on Bloom's taxonomy, e.g. identifying, sequencing events, matching a character to an event, judging why a character acted a certain way.

There are two questions under the heading Word Study. One question relates to phonics and the other to word study or grammar. If your students are unfamiliar with any of these skills, they should be taught as mini-lessons to ensure successful completion of the reading activities. The following skills will be explored:

Phonics: blends, digraphs, double consonants, double vowels, long vowels, short vowels

Word Study: adjectives, antonyms, compound words, contractions, dictionary definitions, nouns, plurals, rhyming words, root words, silent letters, suffixes, syllabication, theme specific vocabulary, verbs, verb past tenses, verb suffixes

In the Thinking About the Story section, the students are asked to relate what happened in the story to their own personal experiences or to evaluate some action or character in the story.
