WILFRID GORDON MCDONALD PARTRIDGE: READING LESSONS & EXTENSION ACTIVITIES

By: Elly Elementary

Reading lessons and activities for Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge by Mem Fox can engage young readers in a heartwarming exploration of memory, friendship, and empathy. Begin by introducing the book and discussing the themes of memory and the elderly, encouraging students to share their own experiences with elderly relatives. Foster comprehension by having students predict what might happen in the story based on the title and cover. As you read the book, pause to ask comprehension questions and discuss the emotions and motivations of the characters. After the reading, engage in activities like creating a “Memory Box” filled with items that hold special significance to students, promoting discussions about cherished memories. Encourage children to interview an elderly relative or friend about their memories, fostering empathy and a deeper understanding of the elderly’s experiences. Finally, have students reflect on the book’s lessons on the value of memories and relationships.
