For as long as I can remember I have absolutely loved these books. They have had me laughing and laughing and...well, laughing some more. Amelia Bedelia is a maid who takes EVERYTHING literally (bless her heart), so, sometimes things go a little haywire. Not to worry though, because everything always works out for Amelia Bedelia. She and I, we are kindred spirits. In fact, we are probably twins that were separated at birth. I mean, talk about a relatable story (for me anyways...)! In all seriousness, these are fantastic books. I promise you, you will not want to put them down. 



Use in the classroom: I would use the "World of Amelia Bedelia" website to find some really awesome activities. On the website, there is a fun activity to help teach homophones and homonyms that I would use. I would also use these books for some fun journal or creative writing activities.


Target grade: 2nd

Super Amazing
"Words Are Categorical" Set of 4 Books (A Mink, a Fink, a Skating Rink: What is a Noun? ~ A Lime, a Mime, a Pool of Slime: More About Nouns ~ Hairy, Scary, Ordinary: What Is an Adjective? ~ Quirky, Jerky, Extra Perky: More About Adjectives) - Brian P. Cleary,Jenya Prosmitsky,Brian Gable

This series, which actually includes several more books, is incredible! What better way to have students learn different concepts of language than in a book, right? These books are so entertaining. If you are wanting to teach your students about nouns, verbs, and adjectives and are not sure where to begin, look no further. These books are a great way to get your students thinking about those very concepts and they are fun stories. It doesn't get much better than that!


Use in the classroom: I would read these (for each unit) and have a fun activity to go along with it, like a noun, verb, or adjective word find. I might also have the students interactive while I read the story by raising their hands or standing up every time they hear a noun, verb, or adjective. 


Target grade level: 2nd-5th

Purposeful and Fun!
Dear Deer: A Book of Homophones - Gene Barretta

Dear Deer is such a fun book! It is about  Aunt Ant who who writes a letter about her move to the zoo. She describes all the silly things that she sees using homophones. Trust me, you don't want your kids to miss out on this fun opportunity to learn! 


Use in the classroom: I would you use this during a lesson on homophones. I would read the book aloud to the students to see if they can identify the homophones. Then I would give a copy of one of the pages with the homophones whited out, read them aloud, and have the students figure out which word goes where. This is a great book to help the students understand homophones and how to properly use them!


Target grade level:K-2
