Free Sample Pages from The Mouse and the Motorcycle Book Unit

Even though The Mouse and the Motorcycle was published in 1965, I had never read it until about a year ago. I was working with a teacher who ability grouped her students. During a 45-minute period on Tuesdays and Thursdays, the special ed teacher took a third of the class, I took a third, and she worked with the remaining third. During this 45-minute period, we practiced vocabulary, worked on comprehension skills, and read wonderful books.

As I walked my group of students down the hall to my classroom on Tuesdays and Thursdays, the students excitedly filled me in on the portion of the story I had missed. I was amazed by their animated voices as they spoke of Ralph’s adventures. This book was magic! I immediately added creating a book unit for The Mouse and the Motorcycle to my “to-do” list.  Here is the result. You can download a free sample of the unit by clicking on the image below.
