Activity Overview


Another great way to engage your students is by creating a storyboard that uses vocabulary from, Henry and Mudge.

In this activity, students demonstrate their understanding of vocabulary words using sentences and corresponding images. Students may be provided the vocabulary words, or they can use words that they have discovered through their reading of the text. The sentences and images validate the understanding of the word and the context that it was used in the novel.



Here are some ways to help your students find the meaning of the vocabulary words they choose:

    1. Use context clues: sometimes you can figure out the meaning of a word by reading the sentences that come before and after the unknown word.

    2. Sometimes, the author may tell the definition of the word right in the same sentence or in the following sentence.

    3. Picture clues may help define an unknown word.

    4. Look at the unknown word and look for parts you may know. Sometimes a new ending or beginning has been added or changed.

    5. Use a dictionary or glossary.


Here is a list of a few vocabulary words commonly taught with the story:



worry

v. to give into anxiety; to be concerned about

”When he walked he used to worry about tornadoes, ghosts, biting dogs, and bullies."



stream

n. a small, narrow river

”The birds flew past as he stood beside a stream, calling and calling."



lonely

adj. sad because one has no friends or company

”And Mudge woke up from his lonely sleep, then came running."



Other vocabulary words that can be used are: floppy, weighed, drooled, bullies, milky, soapy, sniffing, whined, shone, empty, and silent.
