Who doesn't love this book? A Pocket for Corduroy provides excellent vocabulary practice in context for budding readers (although this strategy could be used with any text). Before reading it aloud, go over the new terms: affectionate, hesitate, inspired, and reluctant. Help them utilize context clues by asking kids to raise their hands when they hear one of these words. There are questions to challenge perception for each, prompting connections to familiar concepts. Also, don't limit the graphic organizers to struggling pupils as they are helpful for all learners!
Young scholars complete reading comprehension activities for the book Corduroy. After reading independently or in pairs, students answer questions orally as a class. They retell their favorite part of the story with the instructor and complete an illustration of this part of the story.
