I remember reading these books with my cousin and being totally cracked up. When I finally got my own classroom, the George and Martha anthology was one of the first books I bought.
These books offer loads of opportunities for various ELA lessons and activities. To begin with, the reading level is great for primary students. Sequencing, drawing conclusions, vocabulary development, comparisons, and inferences are just some of the skills that can be touched on with these simple and awesomely illustrated books.
Below you will find a sentence order activity I created to go along with the George and Martha books. Click on picture for your own FREE copy.
Students will sort the cards by matching pictures and them put them in the correct order. After ordering the sentence, students can identify each sentence type and complete the recording sheet.
Here is the scoop . . .
