Optional Book Project for The World According to Humphrey
A Playground for Humphrey!
Many characters in our book created safe places for Humphrey to explore and play.
Chapter 1 – Humphrey remembers how Ms. Mac would make a tunnel on her apartment floor so he could race and wiggle (p. 5).
Chapter 6 – Miranda lined up books all along the edges of the desk in her bedroom so Humphrey could explore and not fall off (p. 70).
Chapter 12 – A.J. and Garth used blocks to create a huge maze for Humphrey (p. 94).
Chapter 14 – The Brisbanes built an obstacle course on their coffee table (p. 112).
Chapter 15 – Humphrey gets a surprise! (p. 117)
Dream up a playground for Humphrey!
– You can create one by drawing on a piece of paper or poster board.
– Or, you can build one in a box or on top of a piece of cardboard (make sure it’s easy to carry to ODE).
– Or, maybe you have another idea. If so, go for it!
– Your playground should have fun things to play with, in and on. It should also be safe for a hamster.
If you are doing a drawing of your playground, add color, detail and description to make it even more interesting. If you are building a playground, try to use things you find around the house (no need to buy anything!). Keep in mind some of the tips from Guide to the Care and Feeding of Hamsters on pages 7, 24, 83, 107 & 113.
If you choose to do this project, bring it to class on Friday, January 28. Questions? Feel free to email me at ANAndrews72@gmail.com!
Session 3 Information:
The Banana Smoothies will be reading Henry Huggins by Beverly Cleary.
Audio books are always fine to use at home, but it would be great if everyone had a copy of the book to use in class. My searches show that the library systems have a bunch of copies available (if you prefer not to purchase). Let me know if you have any trouble getting a hold of the book – I may have a few copies to lend.
