Amelia Bedelia

Character 19

Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish

Book Synopsis: A literal-minded housekeeper causes chaos in the Rogers household when she attempts to make sense of some instructions.

Instructional Focus: (Numbers are for the Virginia Standards of Learning, generally Reading/English)

Homonyms:2.7A, 3.4A, 4.4B, 5.4C,

Creating the Costume: The dress from Viola Swamp makes another appearance.  Add white tights, an apron and a headband/hat made from, you guessed it, hot glue and felt and you’ve got Amelia Bedelia.  I’ve also got a little black purse that goes with it.

Delivery:  This is a great book for teaching words with multiple meanings.  Prior to reading however, it is important to frontload with some vocabulary instruction.
