FREE Raggedy Ann Worksheets

Raggedy Ann Cover

Raggedy Ann is a beloved rag doll created by author Johnny Gruelle. This book is one that I consider a classic. Raggedy Ann has such a nice personality and her adventures are for young boys and girls alike. You can download the book FREE from Gutenberg.

When wanting to study this book with Hannah (7), I could not find exactly what I was looking for so created my own. It has been tested and the Raggedy Ann Notebook is now available for you 🙂 Each chapter has a corresponding narration page, questions page and a copy work page. Several coloring pages are also included. On top of that I also created an answer booklet.

Hannah loves to draw and color so many of the question pages also have a place to draw something appropriate to the chapter just read. I have been reading how important (and lacking in mainstream education today) narration skills are i.e. the ability to be able to tell back a story just read. When Hannah started this she was absolutely hopeless! However it only took her about about two stories to get the idea that she had to really listen in order to be able to tell the story back. A good and essential training for a child that finds it hard to sit still and concentrate.

Depending on your child’s abilities, this curriculum could be used for the older child. Instead of narrating to you and you writing it down, he/she  could rewrite the story themselves.

Another adVENTURE of FREE, fun learning :)

Hope you enjoy,

Liz

P.S. Don’t forget the Raggedy Ann bookmarks I shared with you a while back.
