Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Ask Questions About Those Illustrations - Section 5: Students Take a Turn


Some of my kids had not read Amelia Bedelia before and found her to be very funny. The only problem that we had with the book is that some of the references and vocabulary were a little dated (drapes, hang out clothes, clothespins). However, the kids quickly picked up on the idea of how she interpreted the requests literally and really enjoyed the story. 

Its still worthwhile to fit in that vocabulary, as you can see in this discussion, but these are novel topics for the kids.

  Student Led Inquiry: LOTS of great vocabulary
