Hooway for Wodney Wat Lesson Plans:  Close Reading

Hooway for Wodney Wat by Helen Lester is one of my favorite books!

 

Perhaps because Wodney may be my kindred spirit!

This was 100% me in elementary school.

If you are not familiar with the book, it is the story of Rodney (AKA: Wodney) who has trouble saying his “r’s.”  He is terribly shy at school.  Then it gets worse when Camilla Capybara comes to school!

Camilla is bossy and mean-spirited.

Hooway for Wodney Wat Lesson Plans:  Retelling the Text

Practicing retelling the text with details is included in virtually every one of our Engaging Readers units. Just because the teacher is doing the decoding of the book, that does not mean our read alouds are a time for students to take a mental vacation!

Once the color retell cards are put in order by the students, the students turn and talk to their reading partner.  They practice orally retelling the story several times.  The picture cards are in full view so the students can use them as support.  Then the students create their own retelling strip.

And whenever we can make a cute craft out of it, we say, “YES! PLEASE!”
