Free Wind in the Willows Notebooking Pages!

Our current read aloud for the middle kids (ages 8 and 10) is The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame.  This is a wonderful book that will stretch your kids’ vocabularies and offers the opportunity to learn about a lot of different animals---with a little prior prep, you could easily do a unit study!

In addition to meeting Mole, Ratty (the water rat), Otter, Badger, and seeing Toad in passing, there are many animals mentioned in the first chapter.  Here is a list of most of the animals mentioned to get you started on some rabbit trails:

A few of the other topics that come up in this chapter:

Do you notebook?  I’ve created 4 free sets of notebooking pages your children can use in their narrations about Mole, Ratty, Badger, and Toad.  You might used them to summarize the story, write about a scene from the book, or share some research on the real life animals.

Each set has 5 different layouts to choose from, featuring:

  • full-color photos
  • different width lines for writing on
  • picture boxes for drawing a scene from the book
  • a primary page where kids Pre-K to 1st grade can copy the character’s name and draw a picture
