Book Talk Thursday ~ Amelia Bedelia's First Apple Pie

Fall is here, and it is time to start thinking about one of my favorite things ~ apple pie!  For Book Talk Thursday, I am sharing a fun book and freebie!

Do you love Amelia Bedelia?  I sure do, and I am so happy that there is a new series of books about Amelia when she was younger.  Amelia Bedelia always loves to cook in her books, and it is the one thing she is actually good at doing.  In the book, Amelia Bedelia's First Apple Pie, Amelia finds out what it takes to make an apple pie.

When I think of Amelia Bedelia, I think of her making major mistakes because she does not understand the multiple meanings of words.  In this book, Amelia Bedelia is portrayed as a young girl who is still learning. Though she doesn't understand everything, you can tell that it is more innocent ~ perfect for young children.

Like other Amelia Bedelia books, this book has a few idioms and multiple meaning words in it.  My favorite is when her grandfather tells her they are going to the farmer's market to get apples, and she thinks they are going to buy a farmer.  It reminds me of the innocence of children.

I have created a freebie to use with the book.  It focuses on using idioms and multiple meaning words.  The flip flap book has three sayings from the book on the outside.  On the inside, students can draw a picture or write what Amelia thinks it means and what it really means.  This is perfect for interactive notebooks or a simple assessment of understanding.  Click {here} or on the picture below to grab your freebie.

  1. I bought this book last year from Scholastic because I loved Amelia Bedelia growing up. Thanks for sharing (even though I'm WAY late looking at it)! I'll have to use this with my kids :-)
