Ideas to use in the classroom

There are so many ways to use H.M. in the classroom.  As a grade level we usually take 2 weeks to do a story.  Near the end of the year to fit it all in we change it to a story a week.

I have the entire series of tests and answer keys on my website to the left side of this page.  I have a Focus Wall in my room which is strictly dedicated to H.M.   We highlight the story of the week and focus on different comprehension strategies.  I also use it to introduce spelling words and vocab. from the story.

 Play a game called RIVET with your students.  You use the vocabulary words from each story.  It's a little like hangman you put however many letters are in the word out there, for example for the word mustache you will put 8 lines.  You add the first letter or a middle letter and give clues of the word.  Continue to add letters until someone guesses it.
 Word Detective -- For this game you pre write the vocabulary words for each story on sentence strips.  Hand them out to kids randomly ( making sure to switch it up each story ).  When you read the story every time a vocabulary word from the story is read the Word Detective(s) hold their word up high.  It's fun and keeps the kids focused, also it helps them to remember their vocabulary words.
