I  used  Henry and Mudge  because its a Common Core Exemplar and I want the kids to hear more about these characters.  They have been a favorite of my 2nd graders through the years.  The text in this series is a little more difficult, so its better for a read-aloud.  You could use any book in this series, but preview it first.

There are some real opportunities to scaffold this lesson for students of varying abilities. The lesson can be completely individualized by choosing different leveled books for different students.  Perhaps your higher readers could choose from a specific set of harder books.  The readers who struggle could have an easier set of books.

I sat with some of my lower readers and read some parts of the story to them and referenced the pictures.  Sometimes, I would list some key vocabulary (characters' names, event vocabulary) on the board for them to copy.  The Poppleton books were easier to read, so pay attention to reading level as you choose books.

When a boy named Henry and his beloved 180-pound dog Mudge stay overnight at Henry’s grandmother’s house, chaos ensues. As a result, Mudge is sent to spend the night outside away from Henry, which makes Henry very worried. Students will demonstrate full comprehension of this text by visualizing and retelling the key events, and making connections and inferences about what the main characters might be feeling.
